The effects of frond number on root growth and fresh fruit bunch yield of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.)


, : The effects of frond number on root growth and fresh fruit bunch yield of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.). Buletin Perkebunan 21(2): 70, 93-106

In a trial with oil palms, the number of fronds/palm was reduced to 32, 40, 48, 56 and 64 by pruning. Urea (2.0 or 2.5 kg/palm), rock phosphate (2.0 or 2.5 kg/palm), KCl (1.0 or 2.5 kg/palm) and kieserite (1.0 or 1.5 kg/palm) were applied annually in Oct. from 1984 to 1988. Roots were harvested at soil depths of 0-30, 30-60 and 60-90 cm, and at radial distances of up to 0.5, 1.5, 2.5 and 3.5 m from the base of the palm and root DW/palm was recorded.
