Some effects of variety, pruning and pH adjustments on the early development of highbush blueberry plants in Scotland

Acta Horticulturae (61): 69-84

Some effects of variety, pruning and pH adjustments on the early development of highbush blueberry plants in Scotland

In a 6-year trial Ivanhoe and Heerma I were amongst the most vigorous cvs and produced the heaviest crops, but the fruit was small. Three levels of pruning severity had little effect on vegetative growth of Earliblue although the more vigorous treatments reduced yield.
