Long-term agronomical performance and iron chlorosis susceptibility of several Prunus rootstocks grown under loamy and calcareous soil conditions
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-11-29)
The objective of this work was to evaluate the agronomic performance (vigor, yield, yield efficiency, number of root suckers), fruit quality (fruit weight, fruit size, flesh firmness, soluble solids content, and titratable ...
The Efficacy of Four Sunburn Mitigation Strategies and Their Effects on Yield, Fruit Quality, and Economic Performance of Honeycrisp Cv. Apples under Eastern New York (USA) Climatic Conditions
(International Journal of Fruit Science, 2019-04-22)
Sunburn is a serious economic problem in practically all apple-growing regions of the world. Losses of apple fruit due to sunburn can range from 10% as high as 50%. Several years ago, this problem started to be a concern ...
Blooming under Mediterranean Climate: Estimating Cultivar-Specific Chill and Heat Requirements of Almond and Apple Trees Using a Statistical Approach
Climate change, and specifically global temperature increase, is expected to alter plant phenology. Temperate deciduous fruit trees have cultivar-specific chill and heat requirements to break dormancy and bloom. In this ...
Brevis thinning efficacy at different fruit size and fluorescence on ‘Gala’ and ‘Fuji’ apples
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-07-26)
Brevis thinning efficacy depends on climatic and cultivar conditions. The objective of this work was to evaluate the efficacy of one application of Brevis in ‘Gala’ and ‘Fuji’ apple applied at different fruit sizes (fruit ...
Screening of eco-friendly thinning agents and adjusting mechanical thinning on ‘Gala’, ‘Golden Delicious’ and ‘Fuji’ apple trees
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2018-05-30)
Fruit thinning is the most important yet difficult practice that drives orchard profitability. High labor costs and difficulty to improve return bloom by hand thinning have left chemical thinning as the main method used ...
Hail nets do not affect the efficacy of metamitron for chemical thinning of apple tree
(Journal of Horticultural Science and Biotechnology, 2019-06-19)
Hail nets reduce photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) and alter the environment under the netting in apple orchards. Thus, we investigated the effect of nets on the efficacy of metamitron, a short-term photosynthesis ...
