-holding capacities ( Koo, 1980 ). Water-saving irrigation techniques and fertilizer strategies can be used to improve efficiency of water uptake in grapevines ( Vitis vinifera L.) and peach trees [ Prunus persica (L.) Batsch] ( Chalmers et al., 1981 ; Dry et al

ornamental studies have provided total nutrient budgets for plant uptake and loss. Also, few studies have related N and P availability (from fertilization) to nutrient uptake and nutrient uptake efficiency by ornamental species. Little is also known about how

on typically sandy textured soils. Optimizing applications of nutrient and water and their use efficiencies is, therefore, important for minimizing potential losses of nutrients to the environment, particularly nitrogen (N), in sandy soils. Synthetic

these cultivars exhibit greater branching associated with smaller diameters of trunk, branches, and shoots, resulting in higher yield efficiency and a greater number of fruiting shoots in the small canopy volume allowed in super high-density systems
