HERNANDEZ, Geisy; PEREZ, Jeny; MARTINEZ, Roberto e LOPEZ, Teresa. Productive response of guava tree to irrigation water management on urban agriculture. Rev Cie Téc Agr [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.3, pp. 01-06. ISSN 2071-0054.
The objective of this paper was determining irrigation management in guava tress on urban agricultural conditions. The research was carried out in a plot at "Celia Sánchez" agricultural cooperative, located in Habana del Este municipality. To substitute the soil water was used drip irrigation with fixed intervals and dosage. The results showed that an adjustment in the irrigation dosage during the first period, depending on the demand. During the development season of the crop, irrigation dosage & frequency used resulted acceptable with 90% the irrigation improvement. On the other hand, it was demostrated that maintaining high levels of soil moisture produce a positive effect on crop yield and size of the fruit, getting with this irrigation management higher amounts of fruits and crop yield up to of 36,7 t/ha.
