Relationship of typical core temperatures after hydrocooling on retention of different quality components in sweet cherry

Experiments to evaluate the differences in quality retention at close to ideal core temperature (0.5 °C) vs. at more typical 3 or 5 °C core…

Effect of emitter type and mounting configuration on spray coverage for solid set canopy delivery system

The study was conducted to quantify spray coverage using various emitters mounted at different configurations within tree canopy using a SSCD system.

An evaluation of U.S. tart and sweet cherry producers’ trait prioritization: Evidence from audience surveys

This study investigated the relative importance of fruit and tree traits to sweet and tart cherry producers using ordered probit models.

Variation in cold hardiness of sweet cherry flower buds through different phenological stages

The goal of this study was to identify the critical temperatures of cherries buds at different development stages, using differential thermal analysis (DTA) and a…

Respiration and quality responses of sweet cherry to different atmospheres during cold storage and shipping

The objectives of this research were to study the effects of sweet cherry storage O2 and CO2 concentrations on the respiratory physiology and the efficacy…

Evaluation of GA4+7 plus 6-Benzyladenine as a frost-rescue treatment for apple

This study investigated the potential for a proprietary mixture of gibberellin A4 + A7 and 6-benzyladenine (GA4+7 plus 6-BA) to increase fruit set and cropping…

Physical and chemical methods to avoid fruit cracking in cherry

A variety of control methods for rain-induced cracking of sweet cherries is reviewed discussing the relative success of each method.

Specialty crop growers’ perspectives on adopting new technologies

Implementation of technological innovations in the agricultural sector tends to be slow, thus this study investigated motivations and perceptions of technology.

Bayesian QTL analyses using pedigreed families of an outcrossing species, with application to fruit firmness in apple

Here, we present an improved Bayesian multi-QTL pedigree-based approach on an outcrossing species using progenies with different (complex) genetic relationships.

N-Butyl Sulfide as an attractant and coattractant for male and female codling moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)

We evaluated the trapping of codling moth with N-butyl sulfide alone and in combination with acetic acid and pear ester in apple orchards.
