alternate bearing - fruit nut research

How long will it take for pecan trees to begin

The earliest-bearing pecan varieties are not necessarily the best varieties to grow They start production at an early age and generally produce large crops However overproduction leads to poor nut quality and alternate bearing as the trees age Question answered by Dr John Pyzner LSU AgCenter pecan and fruit extension specialist

2015-11-30Alternate bearing is a significant economic problem for a number of fruit and nut industries worldwide In a heavy "on-crop" year the problem is too many small fruit that have a low cash value because of their small size and over-abundance In an "off-crop" year fruit are generally

The Evolution of Fruit Tree Productivity: A Review

The Evolution of Fruit Tree Productivity: A Review Domestication of fruit trees has received far less attention than that of annual crop plants In particular very little is known about the evolution of fruit tree productivity In the wild most tree species reach reproductive maturity after a long period of juvenility and even then sexual reproduction appears sporadically often in a mode

Alternate Bearing in Citrus: Changes in the Expression

2012-10-11Introduction Alternate bearing (AB) is the process by which cycles of heavy yield (ON crop) one year are followed by a light yield (OFF crop) the next (reviewed in ) AB occurs in both deciduous and evergreen fruit and nut tree crops and in forest trees (where it is called "masting") regardless of their annual reproductive and vegetative cycles

Effects of flower buds removal on seasonal starch

2014-6-9Fruit trees need to store reserves to allow their survival during winter and for bud flush and leaf growth in the following spring The current study investigated the effects of alternate bearing and flower buds removal on seasonal starch storage and mobilization in leaves current shoot and one-year-old wood of fruiting and non-fruiting branches of 'Mateur' pistachio (Pistacia vera L

Nutrient dynamics in pistachios (Pistacia vera L ): The

The present research was accomplished on 8-year-old 'Kerman' pistachio nut (Pistacia vera L ) to study the nutrient dynamics in the dry temperate ecosystem of north-west Himalaya We investigated the agronomic performance alternate bearing behavior soil fertility indicators and leaf nutrients usually to get higher nut yield and quality mainly as the blooming non-contemporaries during the

Almond Growth Requirements

Alternate bearing – where a high crop load in one year is often followed by a low yield in the next year – is an issue in most nut tree species The reasons for alternate bearing are not fully understood but it is assumed that parameters such as hormonal imbalances or the competition for carbohydrates or nutrients during flower bud
