Effect of a severe water stress on fruit growth and yield of mature Valencia orange trees



Effect of a severe water stress on fruit growth and yield of mature Valencia orange trees



Journal of the Southern African Society for Horticultural Sciences 3(1): 34-36



In a trial over 2 seasons, orange Olinda Valencia trees on rough lemon Cairn rootstocks were either fully irrigated (whenever 50% of readily available water in the root zone (0-900 mm soil depth) was depleted), or subjected to water stress (from 19 Feb. to 15 June 1990 (season 1) and from 21 Dec. 1990 to 2 May 1991 (season 2)) by not irrigating and by excluding rainwater from the soil with plastic sheeting.
