If you have been growing fruit trees for some time Surely you have had very good harvests and others that have been rather poor. A small change in the crop can assure us that the production will be excellent, or on the contrary, very bad.

It is a phenomenon known as beatand unfortunately practically all species of fruit trees can be affected.

What are the causes of the overthrow?

The turnaround is a phenomenon that occurs because the plant, or some part of it, has lacked or had something left over. A) Yes, the causes are as follows:

  • The tree has run out of reserves during fruit ripening, therefore it will not be able to expend as much energy as it should on flowering.
  • The fruits compete with the vegetative tips for nutrients; so that the development of the former is limited.
  • Floral initiation, which normally occurs the year before flowering, interferes with the growth of the tree.

It can be controlled?

Fortunately yes, although it will depend on the species, variety, climate and location, among other factors, whether good results are achieved in that season or in the following ones. What is done is the following:

  • Fruit thinning: at the beginning of the development of the fruits, we proceed to remove some of them or fruitful branches. In this way, those that remain will be able to mature without any problem.
  • Lined: it is made especially in citrus fruits. It is a practice that consists of making a cut in the bark of the tree to temporarily prevent the descent of elaborated sap to the roots. With this it is achieved that the growth of the fruits is optimal.

Dawning can also occur in citrus
