Water relations are a key factor limiting olive production. In this study, effects of plating density on physiological aspects and productivity of ‘Chemlali’ olive trees were analyzed under rain-fed conditions in four planting densities (156, 100, 69 and 51 trees ha−1), in an experimental olive orchard located in the center of Tunisia. Seasonal changes in leaf relative water content (RWC), leaf water potential, stomatal conductance (g s), CO2 assimilation rate and tree production were studied… CONTINUE READING
