Factors affecting tree crop efficiency in young peach trees: rootstock vigour and training system

Factors affecting tree crop efficiency in young peach trees: rootstock vigour and training system

Acta Horticulturae (557): 193-197

We report the effect of 2 rootstocks (GF 677 and Missour) and 2 training systems (Y-shape and Free-spindle) on dry matter accumulation and partitioning, starch concentration and crop efficiency of young peach trees (cv. Maycrest) grown in large pots. Both training system and rootstock significantly influenced tree growth and productivity in the early ripening Maycrest peach cultivar in the first two growing seasons (1998 and 1999).
