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.

Fruit separation efficiency was between 96.5 and 98.5%. Pre...

Increasing plant density resulted in less lateral branching, making the fruits easier to harvest mechanically without affecting total yields. Breeding line No. 446 was the most suitable cv. to grow for mechanical harvesting.
