Abstract


More than nine million hectares of olive trees are cultivated all over the world, but especially in the Mediterranean countries. As an essential operation, pruning of olive trees produces a huge amount of biomass which is lacking of industrial applications and must be eliminated from fields to prevent propagation of vegetal diseases. This work deals with the development of a regression model to be used in the estimation of the real biomass production from olive tree pruning.
