Nutritional status of yellow passion fruit under saline water irrigation and organic-mineral fertilizing. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.spe1, pp. 729-735.

Plant nutrition is essential to improve productivity and increase fruit quality of the passion fruit. This experiment aimed to evaluate the passion fruit nutrition under different planting densities and fertilization. A complete randomized block design was adopted with three repetitions and four plants per parcel, using factorial arrangement 4 x 2, referring to bovine in soil with and without NPK. The irrigation was performed daily, with saline water (electrical conductivity= 4,0 dS m-1), using drip irrigation. The application of liquid bovine fertilizer, except for calcium, supplied properly the passion fruit plants in macronutrientes, showing higher results in the treatments with mineral fertilizer.
