Mode of measurementSpecify the method used for pruning measurement

Per tree

One or several single trees selected. Biomass per tree collected manually and weighted

Per parcel (e.g. 100m2) in bags

One or several parcels selected. Each parcel several trees.
Biomass per parcel collected manually and weighted

Per several rows (or in whole field)

On large parcel, or a whole field is selected.
Biomass collected and loaded to a truck. Weight of the load taken ia a scale for trucks

Ammount of prunings obtained (t/ha)Specify the tonnes per hectare of prunings collected from the crop
0.7
Losses of prunings that
weren't harvested (t/ha)

Moisture content (%)Specify the moisture content (%) of the biomass collected if available
30
