Results from a biological apple growing experiment

Results from a biological apple growing experiment

Obstbau 7(11): 514-517

An orchard of Cox's Orange Pippin, Roter Berlepsch and Red Boskoop apple trees on M.9 rootstocks received organic treatments consisting of manuring with compost, spraying with plant extracts for pest and disease control and foliar spraying of processed cow dung to stimulate assimilation. After 5 years this orchard produced 25% less fruit than control orchards receiving standard treatments, though the fruit did not differ in quality or organic and mineral composition.
