OCHOA AGUDELO, Gabriel Fernando; MARTINEZ BUSTAMANTE, Enrique; RAMIREZ PISCO, Ramiro  and  CORREA LONDONO, Guillermo. GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF LIME (Citrus latifolia Tanaka), cv. Tahiti, IN SOILS WITH LIMITATIONS BY EFFECTIVE DEPTH IN A TROPICAL DRY FOREST. Rev. Fac. Nac. Agron. Medellín [online]. 2012, vol.65, n.2, pp.6567-6578. ISSN 0304-2847.

Abstract. It was evaluated the evolution of biomass, its differential distribution among the organs and some parameters of growth and development of acid lime (Citrus latifolia Tanaka), cv. Tahiti, grafted on Carrizo and Kryder patterns. The plants were established in soils with limitations by its effective depth (ED), which ranged between 10 and 20 cm. Assessments were effectuated at 24, 32 and 39 months after transplantation. It is must to keep in mind that root growth is conditioned to the soil attributes of the site where the crops are established, especially in the case of perennials, which have requirements of minimum PE in order to achieve an adequate development. Differences were established between biomass accumulated as a result of the limitation in effective depth. When comparing the growth of plants with ED, we found that the individuals that grew up in soils with ED greater than 20 cm presented a development relatively similar to plantations without such constraints, while in soils with ED less than 10 cm, his response was 3 to 5 times lower.
