Biennial cropping of raspberries for machine harvesting

Acta Horticulturae (60): 57-62
Biennial cropping of raspberries for machine harvesting
Problems arose in attempts to use a straddle harvester on raspberry crops grown in the conventional way. There was damage to young canes, which reduced the yield in the following year, while the presence of young canes increased the amount of fruit dropped to the ground. The biennial cropping system, in which the fruiting and vegetative phases are separated in time, eliminated the damage problem and increased the amount of fruit recovered.
