Effects of between-row spacing and training method on yield and plant characteristics of mechanically harvested 'Meeker' red raspberry






Acta Horticulturae (183): 167-172

Effects of between-row spacing and training method on yield and plant characteristics of mechanically harvested 'Meeker' red raspberry

In 3-year trials the plants were trained as (1) pruned upright bundles, (2) individually pruned and woven canes or (3) unpruned looped bundles all secured to wires 1.5 m high. In one experiment the rows were spaced 3 m apart (standard) and in another the rows were alternately spaced 1.5 and 3 m apart (modified). Fruit was harvested with a Littau mechanical harvester.
