Water Use, Growth, Nutrition, and Fruit Quality as Influenced by Irrigation Systems in 'Fuji' and 'Gala' Apples, and by Rootstock in 'Gala' Grant uri icon



  • Fruit quality and yield are affected by the quantity of water and rootstock. Also, water usage is becoming very important as the world population increase, and many fruit producing areas are facing water shortage. This project will examine the effects of different irrigation regims in 'Fuji' and effects of drip and sprinkler irrigation systems and five rootstcks in 'Gala' apple on fruit quality, yield, nutrition, and storability.
