Effect of summer pruning on tree growth and fruit yield and quality in the apple cultivar Spartan



Effect of summer pruning on tree growth and fruit yield and quality in the apple cultivar Spartan



Zeszyty Naukowe Akademii Rolniczej im Hugona Koataja w Krakowie, Ogrodnictwo (220): 35-44



In trials in 1983-85, 15-year-old trees were pruned on 25 June, 20 July, 30 July or 10 Aug. All treatments significantly inhibited growth, but the earliest treatment, which comprised cutting out unwanted shoots and repeatedly shortening all shoots to 2 leaves, inhibited trunk growth more than the 3 later, less severe treatments, where shoots were shortened to 5-6 leaves only once.
