by Lynn Long, Gregory Lang, Clive Kaiser
This new book provides comprehensive coverage of the history, genetic improvements, production physiology of growth and cropping, orchard establishment and management, and harvest considerations for sustainable cherry production. Sweet cherries are a specialty crop, subject to significant production risks for growers, yet with high potential market returns due to strong consumer demand for the fruit's intensely enjoyable flavour and nutraceutical benefits. Written by a renowned team of experts, this book emphasises the scientific principles underlying cherry production practices. It acts as a resource for a scientific foundational understanding of plant growth and cropping, providing the key to both reasoned choice of orchard practices and the solution of future problems. The book: - Covers improved sweet cherry fruiting varieties and rootstocks. - Describes state-of-the-art tree training and production systems. - Considers production risk management technologies and decisions. Heavily illustrated and presented in full colour throughout, Sweet Cherries is written with practical details and underlying physiological concepts for use by beginning and established fruit growers, consultants, and advisors, with a primary focus on fresh market sweet cherries, in addition to students and professionals in horticulture.
