2005 Craig Kallsen ( Irrigation Stress & Early Navel Fruit Maturity)

Irrigation Stress and Early Navel Fruit Maturity

The objective of this experiment is to measure the effects of three levels of water stress initiated approximately August 1 on navel orange fruit size, yield, sugar/acid, color, and juice percentage. The results of this experiment should provide information for early maturing navels on the relationship between fruit quality parameters such as color, sweetness, juiciness, fruit size and yield.
