A project to study the interrelationships between leaf N conc., relative tree yield (RTY), nitrate leaching and fertilizer N recovery was established in 1990. Collection of pretreatment baseline data was followed by differential rates of N fertilization. Significant differences in leaf N conc. and RTY were obtained in 1992 and 1993, respectively. RTY is defined as tree yield in 1993 expressed as a percentage of pretreatment (1990) yield. 15N-depleted (NH4)2SO4 was applied postharvest in 1993 to 17 trees differing in RTY and leaf N conc., and recovery of labelled N in the blossoms of these trees (March, 1994) will be discussed.
