The effect of summer pruning during the first leaf on the growth and flower bud formation of sweet cherries



The effect of summer pruning during the first leaf on the growth and flower bud formation of sweet cherries



Acta Horticulturae ( 410): 301-306



Due to their highly pronounced apical dominance, sweet cherries branch poorly. However, after summer pruning, lateral buds are no longer dominated by the apical shoot and this may result in improved branching and/or enhanced flower bud formation. To determine the optimum timing and severity of summer pruning, an experiment using the cultivars Lapins and Regina on GM 9 rootstocks was set up in 1990 in Belgium.
