In this work the effect of land slope on the biomass production of Cynara cardunculus L. is assessed in an eight¬hectare rainfed crop located in the North East of the Autonomous Community of Madrid (Spain). Soil properties and biomass productions are studied across the field and results processed using GIS and statistical tools. Three slope classes were identified and associated with statistically significant differences in biomass productions. A negative relationship was found between slope and...
