Post petal fall applications of gibberellins improve fruit set on pear
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-03-30)
Commercial pear production has become increasingly difficult over the last decade, with low fruit set being one of the main factors leading to poor yield of pear orchards. The use of gibberellins to increase fruit set has ...
Horticultural performance of ‘Marinada’ and ‘Vairo’ almond cultivars grown on a genetically diverse set of rootstocks
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-06-14)
Evolution of almond planted area and production has been mainly due to the arrival of new cultivars and rootstocks that have contributed to improve agronomic characters such as yield, precocity and efficiency. In recent ...
Use of root pruning, paclobutrazol, and prohexadione-Ca combination strategies to control growth and improve productivity on pear trees
(Spanish Journal of Agricultural Research, 2019-07)
Growth control in pear orchards is essential, not just to reduce competition between vegetative and reproductive sinks, but also to improve return bloom, yield and fruit quality. The goal to optimize growth control, return ...
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), ...
