Abstract
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 Autonomous Community of Madrid (Spain) . Soil properties and biomass productions are studied across the field and results processed using GIS and satistical tools. Three slope classes were identified and associated with statistically significant diffetences in biomass productions. A negative relationship was found between slope and cynara productivity. The fact that soil properties were not statistically significant suggested the importance of other factors such as soil depth and surface water runoff.
