Abstract

The purpose of this study, carried out in Umbria, (Central Italy) on the cv. Moraiolo, was to find out the stage fructification-cycle corresponding to the maximum amount of extractable oil and to test the opportunity of the ethylenepromotors in olive harvesting. The results obtained showed that the best harvesting period lies within the range of 15-20 days: this period can be detected by a recurrent evaluation of a number of parameters such as the fruit drop and the oil-yield. Moreover the study allowed to conclude that, regardless of the harvesting-time, manual harvesting is more profitable than the integrated harvesting with Alsol and CEPA. The harvesting cost has been strongly affected by the cost of the fruit-drop inducing substances and by the pre-harvesting fruit-drop they determined. These phytoregulators however have been effective in reducing the removal force of fruits; their use could be an alternative to manual harvesting, consistently with the price, in those areas where olive crop can still be profitably exploited but are not liable to mechanical harvesting.
