The grape remote sensing atmospheric profile and evapotranspiration experiment
(Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, 2018-10-09)
Particularly in light of California’s recent multiyear drought, there is a critical need for accurate and timely evapotranspiration (ET) and crop stress information to ensure long-term sustainability of high-value crops. ...
Post-Harvest Regulated Deficit Irrigation in Chardonnay Did Not Reduce Yield but at Long-Term, It Could Affect Berry Composition
Future increases in temperatures are expected to advance grapevine phenology and shift ripening to warmer months, leaving a longer post-harvest period with warmer temperatures. Accumulation of carbohydrates occurs during ...
Using Soil Moisture Sensors for Automated Irrigation Scheduling in a Plum Crop
The growing scarcity and competition for water resources requires the urgent implementation of measures to ensure their rational use. Farmers need affordable irrigation tools that allow them to take advantage of scientific ...
Nitrogen nutrition diagnosis for olive trees grown in super-intensive cropping systems
(Journal of Plant Nutrition, 2019-06-17)
The results of a 4-year experiment combining irrigation, N, and K showed that to maintain productivity and tree growth it is necessary to attain a higher leaf N status than current diagnosis standards. To sustain high oil ...
Effect of N dose, fertilisation duration and application of a nitrification inhibitor on GHG emissions from a peach orchard
(Science of the Total Environment, 2019-08-23)
Despite only occupying 5% of the worldwide arable area, fruit tree crops are of vital economic importance in many regions. Intensive cropping practices can lead to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In order to reduce these ...
