Based on the climatic classification of the Secretariat of Agriculture of the State of Parana, Brazil [7], the following different regions were easily distinguished: region 1 (R1): mesothermal climate humid and super humid (lacking a dry season, but experiencing severe winter, severe and frequent frost, rainy and mild summers, at altitudes higher than 850 to 900 m); region 2 (R2): mesothermal climate with no dry season (harsh winter with average rainfall and some frost, rainy summers and high temperature, altitudes normally below 850 to 900 m); region 3 (R3): mesothermal climate with a distinct dry season (h summers and low occurrence of frost, mostly lower than 850 to 900 m).
The experiment was performed at the Center for Seedling Production of Sao Bento do Sapucai-SP, belonging to the Coordenadoria de Assistencia Tecnica Integral (CATI), located in the Mantiqueira mountains at a latitude of 22[degrees] 41' (S), longitude of 45[degrees] 43' (W), altitude of 886 meters and mesothermal climate (Cwa).
The area is located between parallels 21[grados]11'-21[grados]12'S; 43[grados]55'-43[grados]58'W, in a region of highland tropical climate, characterized by hot rainy summers and cold dry winters (Koppen Cwb42 mesothermal climate).
