Decision Support Tools For Management of Avocado Nutrition and Chloride Toxicity

  • Dec 31, 2019

In this research, we have modeled the relationships between leaf nutrient concentrations and the yields of avocado trees with the aim of developing decision support tools for improved fertilization and nutrient management to increase avocado fruit yields. Using a data base of ~3500 observations in which nutrient concentration profiles and yields of individual trees were examined over several harvest seasons, we now present in our final report a refined model that predicts nutrient-yield relationships based on all possible combinations for the 11 elements that are monitored by leaf analyses.
