Effect of drought stress on the physiology, fruit development, quality and yields of litchi trees


, : Effect of drought stress on the physiology, fruit development, quality and yields of litchi trees. Inligtingsbulletin Instituut vir Tropiese en Subtropiese Gewasse ( 260): 19-20

The effects of drought stress on 10-year-old Litchi Mauritius trees growing on a sandy loam soil were investigated. In the wet treatment, trees were irrigated weekly to replace evapotranspiration, while in the dry treatment, trees were slowly subjected to drought stress from panicle emergence in late July until after harvest in Jan.

Mauritius trees, commonly grown in South Africa, are vigorous and fast growing and overcrowding occurs within 8-10 years of establishment. High density plantings are therefore not possible unless trees are removed when they are at their...

In a trial with mature litchi trees, the effects were assessed of calcium ammonium nitrate (28%N), superphosphate and potassium chloride, at annual application rates of 1-5, 0-3.0 and 0-1.5 kg/tree, respectively. Yields/tree were highest (150 kg)...
