Effect of soil management systems on bearing and fruit quality of apple cv. Red Delicious



Effect of soil management systems on bearing and fruit quality of apple cv. Red Delicious



Indian Journal of Horticulture 50(1): 10-13



The long-term effect of 7 orchard soil management systems (mulching with black polyethylene, use of Trifolium pratense, T. repens, Medicago sativa or Lolium multiflorum as a cover crop, mulching with hay or clean cultivation) on the growth, yield and fruit quality of Red Delicious apples was studied. Mulching with black polyethylene resulted in the highest growth, fruit set (8.89%), individual fruit weight (156.6 g), fruit size and yield (131.9 kg/plant), and the lowest fruit drop (30.12%).
