(Scientia Horticulturae, 2018-11-26)
In 2006, two 0.3 ha orchard trials were established at two sites (Dressel farm in Southeastern New York State and VandeWalle farm in Western New York State) to compare two tree types (feathered trees and bench-grafted ...
Natural fruitlet abscission as related to apple tree carbon balance estimated with the MaluSim model

Apple trees produce many more flower clusters than needed for a full crop, but natural early season flower and fruitlet abscission drastically reduce the final fruit number. Natural fruit abscission varies significantly ...
II. Horticultural performance of ‘Honeycrisp’ grown on a genetically diverse set of rootstocks under Western New York climatic conditions
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-08-07)
A field experiment with 31 rootstocks representing a genetically diverse group of rootstocks featuring ‘Honeycrisp’ as the scion was planted in 2010 at Geneva, NY USA. Rootstocks included three from the Malling series (UK), ...
