- ... Fungal disease infection risk in fruit trees strongly depends on the climatic conditions in the orchard and on the microclimate within the tree. The Leaf Wetness Duration (LWD), i.e. the time that free water remains on leaves in relation to rain or dew events is for many fungal species the significant parameter linking the epidemic risk to environment humidity. Our goal is to provide a reliable LW ...

- ... The increase of plant density in new olive orchard systems requires a deeper investigation about plant architecture to understand growth, branching pattern and yield and to select most suitable cultivars. The spatial arrangement of vegetative and reproductive structures helps to explain the fruiting attitude of the plant at different levels: the whole tree, the productive branch and the fruiting s ...
