A fertigation experimentation
composed of a device of 4 complete randomized blocks, each including 6 irrigation and fertilization modalities, on Eucalyptus (witness, I, F, FI) and Pine (witness and IF). This trial is used to test the effects of lifting the growth water and mineral stresses on productivity of Eucalyptus and Maritime Pine crops on the sandy soils of the Landes of Gascogny.

It extends a similar experimentation installed on Maritime Pine in this same plot from 1991 to 2009 (Trichet et al., 2008).
