Effect of Crop Load on the Phenological, Vegetative and Reproductive Behavior of the ‘Frantoio’ Olive Tree (Olea europaea L.)

  The aim of this study was to characterize the phenological, vegetative and reproductive behavior variables of ‘Frantoio’ olive trees in an “off” year (with a low crop load) and an “on” year (with a high crop load). To do this, during the 2011–2012...
