Plant manipulation More advanced fertigation & irrigation No textbook response Scheduling
Sunlight Biomass production Water Oxygen Nutrients Principles of Fertigation Concentration of individual inorganic ions in the plant depend on the: Rate of uptake
Concentration in nutrient solution Uptake of water Intensity of transpiration Principles of Fertigation Consumption rates of nutrients by the tree rootstock / clone combination plant population growth stage climatic conditions water supply
plant size Open field hydroponics 3 Pillars of the system Maximum advantage of environmental factors Drip irrigation / Restricted rootzone Nutrient solution manipulation Environmental factors High noon - max sunlight and energy
Will give us maximum Transpiration Stomatal conductivity CO2 assimilation Photosynthesis Physiological Aspects of Water Stress

Soil contribution regarding nutrient supply?? Fertilization program based on concentration and weight units per plant Composition of irrigation water considered when preparing nutrient solution Buffered at pH 5.8 - 6.2 Adapted to the Phenology of plant (growth events) General formula for . More fruit and less wood production
. N (=), P (+), K (++), Mg (--) More wood and less fruit production . N (=), P (-), K (--), Mg (++) . Good Fruit Grower Tree Fruit Nutrition, edit by A. Brooke Peterson and Robert G. Stevens TIME Mid-May to July Growth
Stage Floral induction and initiation Development Phase Transition of resting buds to floral buds Aug. to mid-Sept. Pre-bloom
Bud break and inflorescence development Mid-Sept to Oct. Flowering Flowering and initial fruit set Nov. to Dec.
Stage I Fruit growth Fruit cell division and physiological fruit drop Jan. to Apr. Stage II Fruit growth Fruit cell expansion May onwards
Maturation Fruit maturity and harvest Fruit World Fertigation systems (Very complex system but shows need for automation) Mulching vs no-mulching OHS With OHS, the objective is to form root balls as close to the soil surface as possible to
minimize soil interaction with the nutrient solution. Mulching speeds up the process of forming roots near the surface.
Would be good if there was a kebab shop too!! Augustus Street. Toowong-Buses need to run on time and actually come. ... Are the apartments low cost? well that's your reason right there. Already I'm seeing a really dodgy element...
Parallel means : extending in the same direction, everywhere equidistant, and not meeting, or the development of similar new characters by two or more related organisms in response to similarity of environment -- called also parallel evolution Isomorphic processes in...

Exteroreceptors 1 The receptors that transduce light or sound are highly specialized cells; in contrast, exteroreceptors are merely nerve endings in the skin. The cells that give rise to these nerve endings are found in ganglia just external to the...
Cost Modeling for Materials Selection. Assessing potential: cost and value. Inputs to a cost model for selection. The model and its implementation. Cost drivers, batch size, assembly. This Unit introduces simple ideas about cost modelling for material and process selection,...
Angles in a circle - theorems . Theorem: The angle at the centre is double the angle at the circumference Theorem: All angles that start and end on the same arc and touch the circumference are equal. Theorem: Triangles in...
