Three rates of urea, urea-DCD, and NH₄N0₃ were soil
applied in April and August 1986 to strawberry selection
OR-US 4930 and cultivar 'Sumas' to determine effects of the
nitrification inhibitor dicyandiamide (DCD) and nitrogen
source and rate on soil NH₄ and N0₃ levels, fruit yield and
quality, and mineral composition...
To determine the effects of rate of nitrogen application and storage time on fruit quality of highbush blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum, L.), five rates of ammonium sulfate fertilizer were soil-applied in 1984 and 1985 to cvs. Bluecrop and Jersey. Fruit
was harvested up to three times during the 1985 season and...
Two experiments were conducted from 1987 to 1990 to study
the effect of date of renovation on strawberry yield and yield
components. In the first experiment, 'Benton' plants were
renovated from July 6, 1988 (1 week after harvest - WAH) to
August 24, 1988 (8 WAH). In the second experiment...
A cultivar comparison study was conducted to identify similarities
and differences in cane characteristics between 2 primocane fruiting
red raspberry cultivars and to determine if the differences and
similarities can help determine cultural practices that may improve
productivity. The comparison of the cultivars 'Amity1 and 'August
Red' showed a difference...
The influence of mycorrhizae on the nutrient uptake of
strawberries and red raspberries was investigated. On red raspberries
innoculation with a mycorrhizal fungus resulted in increased P uptake
and a greater concentration of P in the shoots of the plants. The
strawberries were innoculated with 2 species of mycorrhizal fungus....
