Abstract

The phenological adaptability and growth of the fig tree (Ficus carica L.) was observed periodically in the Brazilian semi-arid, State of Piauí, Brazil. The study was done using in 46 plants of the fig tree cv “Roxo de Valinhos”, in Bom Jesus, Piauí in the period from April to August of 2018. The meteorological elements associated with phenology were: air temperature, relative humidity, precipitation, and photoperiod. The results revealed significant relations between the phenology, growth, and climatic conditions showing promising answers for the cultivation of the fig tree cv “Roxo de Valinhos”, in the semi-arid region of Piauí.
