Factors affecting frost tolerance of raspberry canes

Acta Horticulturae (81): 97-101

Factors affecting frost tolerance of raspberry canes

Plants of the raspberry cvs Latham (hardy in Poland) and Malling Promise (frost sensitive) were grown with different rates of N, P2O5, K2O, CO and MgO. Cold hardiness was positively correlated with diurnal fluctuations in air temperature. The highest level of hardiness was reached in both cvs in January, but thereafter Latham retained this level for longer and lost hardiness more slowly than did Malling Promise.

N application or premature autumn defoliation, prevented the water content of raspberry canes from dropping in midwinter to the level of untreated, plants. The effect was correlated with a delay in response to spring conditions.

In studies with the raspberry cvs Latham and Veten, frost hardening occurred in 3 phases, which could be modified by weather conditions which also affected the final level of frost resistance. The content of phospholipids in both cvs increased fro...
