Orchard yields are a function of the light intercepted, although this linear relation is less tight when greater than 50% of available light is intercepted. Above this level, light exceeds photosynthetic requirements and can expose leaves to photoinhibition. The "asymmetric" peach orchard was designed and planted to obtain in the field six different light intensities at any time of the day and three daily light interception profiles: low (C), middle (E) and high (W). This paper reports on how...[Show more]
