Reducing the height of fruit tree crowns.

Reducing the height of fruit tree crowns.

Sadovodstvo. 3, 14-16

Pruning mature apple trees to reduce the height of the crown by about one-half resulted in increased growth activity, fruit weight and yields, even in the first year, and in reductions of 30 % in labour costs and of 25-35 % in the volume of chemical sprays required. Profits were increased by 25-44 %. An open crown is recommended in preference to a pyramidal, wide-pyramidal or round crown, since it allows light to reach all parts.
