- Differences in pest management of olive orchards may affect the development of olive trees and may be reflected in terms of absolute and relative asymmetry, mass, and quality of the leaves. Leaf mass and residual leaf mass of olive trees were significantly greater under organic management than other pest management regimes. The analysis revealed that leaves from trees under different pest management regimes differed, a result that may have practical applications.
