Titre : SOUTHWESTERN PECAN RESEARCH – ARIZONA

Identification : 6606-21220-011-04S

Pays : Etats Unis

Durée : Aug 29, 2006 à Aug 28, 2011

Domaine : Soil, Plant, Water, Nutrient Relationships Pecan

Partenaire : UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA TUCSON

Objectif  : The general objective of this cooperative research project is to solve production associated problems that are most limiting or threatening to the viability or profitability of pecan (Carya illinoinensis) husbandry in the desert environment of the southwestern United States

Descriptif
Improved production tools anad strategies will be developed based on field and laboratory based studies. Commercial orchards will be used to assess alternate bearing, and nutritional (focusing on N, Zn, and Mn) factors affecting nut yields and profitability. Data will be integrated with existing knowledge and art to devise new or improved horticultural management tools that solve production problems of importance to southwestern U.S. farmers. Efforts will include foliar based standards for mineral nutrients, improving soil management strategies, and mineral nutrition associated problems.
