About this book

Pruning olive trees is quite different from pruning other fruit trees of the temperate zone because of their biological peculiarities. Errors in pruning may result in yeild losses or higher cultivation costs. Pruning also determines the training system which in turn is one of the major factors for successful tree performance and orchard profitability. This text summarizes recent information and explains the basic concepts at a practical level. It should allow the reader, whether experienced horticulturist or beginner, to develop their own skills and pruning strategy.

Contents

Basic Principles for Pruning Woody Crops; Physiological Background for Pruning Olive Trees; Pruning Olive Trees; Pruning Young Trees; Pruning Mature Trees; Criteria for Selecting the Training System; Description of Modern Training Systems; Comparisons of Training Systems; Conclusions.
