A field experiment was conducted in 2003 and 2005 at the Experimental Station Lipnik near Stargard, on acid brown soil. The soil is classified as quality class IVb, good rye complex, and for cultivation of light soils with low water re-tention useful. We evaluated the use of water for cherry grown under different water and fertilizer. The experiment was randomized block design in the system dependent (called a split-plot), in seven replications in the experiment. The research was conducted on trees in the fourth year after planting, fall within the third year of fruiting. Maintained grass between the trees, and rows of trees - herbicide fallow. The factor I was watering under-crown: O-control (without irrigation), W-irrigated sites, where soil water potential fell below 0.01 MPa. Irrigation system was used under-crown in which water was distributed by type of Hadar sprinkler scale spraying for cherry-1m. Second factor was the mineral fertilization NPK 0 - control (without fertilization), 2 NPK - 260 kg NPK. ha-1 (80 +60 +120). Nitrogen fertilizers applied in early spring, before moving the vegetation, while phosphorus and potassium in the autumn according to the agrotechnical. Based on water intensity ratio of photosynthesis to transpiration and photosynthetic rate were determined using (WUE) and photosynthetic rate of the instantaneous water use (WUEI).
The obtained results indicate that the increase in photosynthetic activity, transpiration, and stomatal conductance had an impact both applied agrotechnical. Both the coefficient of efficiency (WUE) and (WUEI) used depended on irrigation, fertilization and meteorological conditions over the study period.
