Questionnaire for Field Measurements Prunings
Field data (Each questionnaire refers to one crop species cultivated per field)
Field Size (ha)
Variety of crop
Age of crop
Density of crop (trees/ha)
Width between cultivated rows (m)
Distance between trees (m)
Crop forms for Olive
Average Crop yield (t/ha)
Crop yield before measurement (t/ha)Ammount of product obtained for the year that the pruning measurement is perfomed in tonnes per hectare
Intensification degreeSpecify the amount of fertilizer and pesticides
Pruning Operations Performed (prior to measurement)
Type of pruning
Removal of old branches
Mechanised pre-pruning + manual
Pruning OperationsSpecify the pruning operations that are carried out. Check as many as apply.
Season of pruningCheck as many as apply
Frequency of pruning
Once per years
Was this type of pruning performed as usual ?
Yes, it was performed as usual
No, less intense than usual
No, more intense than usual
Describe the ammount of prunings produced compared to other years
Date of Measurement (DD/MM/YY)
Mode of measurementSpecify the method used for pruning measurement
One or several single trees selected. Biomass per tree collected manually and weighted
Number of trees : 7
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
Losses of prunings that
weren't harvested (t/ha)
How many days the prunings were on soil before measuring (days)

Prunning operations are mixed (in this case removal of old branches + maintenance).
The large branches were measured seperately and their weight was 0.0316 t.
