A study was conducted in Chile to determine the effects of different water deficits during phases 1 and 2 of peach Kakamas fruit growth and yield, and develop a practical indicator of water stress to manage irrigation according to peach fruit growth. The control treatment consisted on restoring 100% orchard evapotranspiration (ETc) all throughout the growing season.
