Business Case / Problem:
- Prolonged periods of high temperatures may adversely affect fruit quality.
- Low relative humidity favors the growth of powdery mildew and spider mites.
- Irrigation timing should not interfere with pollination and should allow surfaces to dry before nightfall.
- the salt concentration of the irrigation water increased. The yield reduction was about 17% for a 1 mmho/cm increase in the E.C.
