the second objective was to recommend fertilizer rates that optimize these same factors. We chose to use response surface methodology and canonical analysis as aids in modeling and examining the relationships between fertilizer rates and plant

As the Pacific Northwest fruit industry shifts to precision-based management strategies for their orchards, tools are needed to understand tree physiology in the orchard to optimize fruit quality. Leaf area index is the ratio between the summed area
