Abstract:

Controlled alternate partial root-zone irrigation (CAPRI), also known as partial root-zone drying (PRD), is a new irrigation technique where half of the root zone is irrigated while the other half is allowed to dry out. The treatment is then reversed, allowing the previously well-watered side of the system to dry down while fully irrigating the previously dry side. It may improve the water use efficiency (WUE) of crop without significant yield reduction. A successful PRD strategy reduces the tree water use through stomatal control of transpiration and also reduces the vegetative growth while maintaining the fruit size and yield of fruit.
