Epicormic Shoot – Shoot that arises from latent or adventitious buds that occur on stems and branches and on suckers produced from the base of trees.
Evapotranspiration (ET) – Water loss from the soil resulting from water uptake by roots and water evaporation from the soil. Standard ET data for different areas during each month are available. Adjustment in actual water requirements vary depending upon the crop and the soil type.
Excurrent – Tree with cone-shaped crown with a central leader that outgrows and subdues lateral branches.
Embedded Bark– Pattern of development of branch junctions where bark is turned inward rather than pushed out. See Included Bark.
