Developing Field Strategies to Correct Alternate Bearing in Avocado Groves 2007

  • Apr 29, 2013

In alternate bearing 'Hass' avocado orchards, yield is reduced below the potential of the orchard and grower income is significantly reduced during off-crop years. The goal of this research is to increase grower profitability by clarifying whether treatments that increase summer and/or fall shoot growth can be used to increase floral intensity the following spring and, thus, yield by establishing which buds (apical or axillary), if any, on which shoot flush (spring, summer or fall) of on-crop trees remain floral and for how long.
