Between-vine variation in 'Hayward' kiwifruit vine income: The use of Lorenz curves and Gini coefficients to describe variation and assess

Variability in kiwifruit income generation was studied per individual vine within an orchard block of 'Hayward' kiwifruit over three consecutive growing seasons (2003-2005). The objective of this study income, and determine whether spatial variability of vine income in a small orchard block (0.17 ha) was stable over time and whether site-specific management could be applied to the orchard area.

In 1990, when 200 ppm ethephon (dissolved with 50% ethanol) was applied to kiwifruit cv. Hayward vines approx. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 or 1 week prior to commercial harvest, the 4- and 3-week treatments resulted in edible fruits. Brix, flesh firmness and ti...

We now have investigated a higher concentration application of ethephon (in Japan during 1996). When 500 ppm of ethephon (dissolved...
