plants with more canopy (less severely pruned) were used. Plants in the pilot experiment were multistemmed as observed in natural environments, and this apparently provided a sodium dilution effect because leaf Na + accumulation was ≈2-fold lower for

practices when compared with the control. This may be attributed to the dilution effect created by sand topdressing on the surface layer because sand topdressing showed no effect on organic matter at a depth of 2.5 to 5.0 cm ( Table 3 ). The increase in OM L

dilution effect, because as onion yield increases through the midrange of K fertilizer rates, there is a lower amount of P concentrated in the leaf tissue, which then becomes more concentrated as yield goes down again at the very highest K fertilizer rates

. When N fertilizer rate was increased at the conventional site in 2014, leaf N decreased, perhaps a dilution effect, and yield decreased for many cultivars. Nitrogen and K were the major nutrients removed in the harvested fruit leading to significant

described for different olive varieties of Tuscany (Italy) by Caselli et al. (1993) . Gutiérrez et al. (1999) related this decline to a dilution effect caused by a constant quantity of palmitic acid but rising levels of total fatty acids resulting in a
