|Abstract: ||In 1997 the authors started the study of the use of mechanical pruning in the
Portuguese olive orchards (Dias et al., 1998). The results obtained in a traditional olive
orchard revealed that the use of mechanical pruning can contribute to the reduction of
pruning costs without reduction in yield (Dias, 2006).
During a 6 years trial in a irrigated orchard of Picual variety, in an array of 7 m x 3,5
m, the results obtained showed that is possible to maintain the yield without pruning
interventions (Dias et al., 2012-2).
In 2009 authors started the evaluation of the use of mechanical pruning in a irrigated
intensive olive orchard of Galega vulgar variety installed in an array of 7m x 5m.
In this trial, in a randomised complete block design with three replications, four
treatments (T1, T2, T3, T4) are being compared leading to 12 plots. The treatments under
study are: T1 - manual pruning using manual saws and scissors; T2 - mechanical pruning:
topping the canopy parallel to the ground; T3 - mechanical pruning as in T2, followed by
manual pruning complement using manual saws and scissors; T4 - mechanical pruning:
topping the canopy parallel to the ground. In 2011, treatment T4 was submitted to manual
pruning complement using manual saws and scissors.
The evaluation of pruning rate and the average yield per tree for each treatment was
The results obtained shows that mechanical pruning did not influence the yield per
tree as verified in the traditional olive orchards (Dias et al., 2012-1) and in intensive
orchards (Dias et al., 2012-2).
Manual pruning complement made two years after mechanical pruning seems to have
no influence on yield. More field work is essential to evaluate the effect of new pruning
