Vegetative growth, yield, and fruit quality of ‘Fallglo’ and ‘Sunburst’ mandarins on ‘Rangpur’ lime, ‘Swingle’ citrumelo, ‘Orlando’ tangelo, and ‘Cleopatra’ mandarin were evaluated under subtropical climate of Northern São Paulo State, Brazil, from 2000 through 2006 harvest seasons. ‘Fallglo’ mandarin trees had the highest cumulative yield on ‘Rang...

Citrus plants were grown under two thermal conditions for evaluating carbon metabolism acclimation to moderate warm temperature (30/20ºC, day/night), and its likely impact on plant growth. As reference, plants were grown at 25/20ºC, in which they were subjected to optimum temperature for photosynthesis during the diurnal period (25ºC). Higher photo...
Article
Morpho-physiological strategies to deal with water deficit vary among citrus species and the chemical signaling through ABA and anatomical, hydraulic, and physiological traits were evaluated in saplings of Rangpur lime, Swingle citrumelo and Valencia sweet orange. Trunk and roots of Swingle citrumelo presented lower vessel diameter and higher vesse...
Article
Aquaporins are water channel proteins that facilitate water transport through the transcellular pathway, a route with high resistance due to lipid bilayer membranes. Aquaporins occur as multiple isoforms and plasma membrane aquaporins (PIPs) are known to modulate plant responses to abiotic stress such as drought. Previous studies have reported chan...

The water availability at early phenological stages is critical for crop establishment and sugarcane varieties show differential performance under drought. Herein, we evaluated the relative importance of morphological and physiological plasticity of young sugarcane plants grown under water deficit, testing the hypothesis that high phenotypic plasti...
Chapter
Due to fruit nutritional value and economical importance, citrus species are grown and cultivated around the World, with large plantations being found under subtropical, tropical, and Mediterranean climates. In such areas, citrus trees are subjected to constraining environmental conditions that impair plant development and crop yield, reducing frui...
Article
Maximizing the production and fruit quality of the ‘Tahiti’ lime (Citrus latifolia (Yu. Tanaka) Tanaka) is directly related to the scion/rootstock combination and the production technology applied in groves. Although some research has evaluated the rootstocks for this cultivar, few studies have identified high-performance scion selections. Thus, th...
Article
Despite considerable research conducted on ‘Tahiti’ lime [Citrus latifolia (Yu Tanaka) Tanaka] in several countries, few long-term studies have focused on rootstock effects on fruit production and quality under non-irrigated conditions. As for many other fruit crops, rootstock studies for ‘Tahiti’ lime are often based on the evaluation of several h...
Article
Faced with new challenges, such as emerging diseases, shortening of orchard longevity, and larger social and environmental demands from consumers, practices such as rootstock diversification, irrigation and high density plantings have become relevant for the Brazilian citrus industry. This research had the objective to evaluate the performance of i...
Article
The citriculture in Brazil, as well as in other important regions in the world, is based on very few mandarin cultivars. This fact leads to a short harvest period and higher prices for off-season fruit. The ‘Okitsu’ Satsuma (Citrus unshiu Marc.) is among the earliest ripening mandarin cultivars, and it is considered to be tolerant to citrus canker...

Neste trabalho foi avaliado o desenvolvimento vegetativo, a produção e a qualidade de frutos da tangerina "Fairchild" [(tangerina "Clementina" (C. clementina Hort. ex. Tan.) x tangelo "Orlando" (C. paradisi Macf. x C. reticulata Blanco)] sobre os porta-enxertos limão "Cravo" (C. limonia Osbeck), citrumelo "Swingle" (P. trifoliata Raf. x C. paradisi...

The vegetative development, fruit yield and quality of 'Fairchild' mandarin [('Clementine' mandarin (C. clementina Hort. ex. Tan.) x 'Orlando' tangelo (C. paradisi Macf. x C. reticulata Blanco)] was evaluated on 'Rangpur' lime (C. limonia Osbeck), 'Swingle' citrumelo (P. trifoliata Raf. x C. paradisi Macf.), 'Cleopatra' mandarin (C. reshni Hort. ex...

Com o objetivo de avaliar o desenvolvimento vegetativo, produção e qualidade de frutos da tangerina 'Fremont' (C. clementina Hort. ex Tan. X C. reticulata Blanco) sobre os porta-enxertos limão 'Cravo' (C. limonia Osbeck), citrumelo 'Swingle' (P. trifoliata Raf. x C. paradisi Macf.), tangerina 'Cleópatra' (Citrus reshni Hort. ex Tan.) e tangelo 'Orl...

An experiment was installed in Bebedouro, SP, Brazil in 1997, with the aim of evaluate the effect of the rootstocks 'Rangpur' lime (C. limonia Osbeck), 'Swingle' citrumelo (P. trifoliata Raf. x C. paradisi Macf.), 'Cleopatra' mandarin (Citrus reshni Hort. ex Tan.) and 'Orlando' tangelo (C. reticulata Blanco x C. paradisi Macf.) on plant growth, yie...
