GRASSI FILHO, Hélio; DECHEN, Antonio Roque; TORQUATO, Elano Marçal  and  SANTOS, Carlos Henrique dos. Fenologics characteristics of the ‘Siciliano’ lemon tree on two rootstocks influenced by liming and boron addition. Braz. arch. biol. technol. [online]. 2004, vol.47, n.5, pp.677-684. ISSN 1516-8913.

The current study was developed with disturbed samples of an Oxisol, in which ‘Siciliano’ lemon trees seedlings (C. limon) were grafted on sour orange tree (C. aurantium) and rangpur lime tree (C. limonia). The experiment consisted of three basis saturation levels (50, 70 and 90 percent) and three boron doses (0.5; 1.5 and 4.5 mg dm-3) in the planting with 3x3x2 factorial experimental design with four replications. Mineral composition of the "Siciliano" lemon leaves as well as root system development in sour orange tree were higher than the rangpur lime tree. There was no effect in the interaction basis saturarion level and the boron doses for any of the evaluated parameters.

Keywords : Liming; boron; calcium; Siciliano lemon trees; rootstocks.
