Key observations on the agronomic behaviour of olive cultivars grown under the superintensive model



Key observations on the agronomic behaviour of olive cultivars grown under the superintensive model



Rivista di Frutticoltura e di Ortofloricoltura 68(3): 40-44



The common denominator of the traditional Italian olive industry is a low yield level combined with high production costs. The superintensive olive culture method developed in Spain appears to be the only cultural model capable of considerably reducing the harvesting costs by means of a grape harvesting machine. The efficacy of this new model mainly depends on the availability of cultivars with a compact habit, slow canopy growth and early bearing, such as the Spanish Arbequina and Arbosana.
