, 2014 ]. Blackberry is a perennial plant that produces biennial canes from the crown. When canes emerge the first year, they are vegetative and called primocanes. In their 2nd year, they produce fruiting laterals and fruit on what are then called

( Fernandez-Salvador, 2014 ; Harkins et al., 2013 ). In blackberry, N must be available in early spring for sufficient primocane growth ( Malik et al., 1991 ; Mohadjer et al., 2001 ; Naraguma and Clark, 1998 ). The current recommendation is to divide the

found the yield of ‘Meeker’ and ‘Willamette’ was reduced overall by 60% in an AY system ( Barney and Miles, 2007 ). However, it is unknown whether primocane suppression occurred during the study, which can impact yield potential ( Duan et al., 2017

by Harkins et al. (2013) . Plants were trained on a two-wire vertical trellis system in each row with the wires attached to steel posts at 1.0 and 1.6 m above the ground. Primocanes that grew in year 1 (2010, the planting year) were removed in the

On cultivated red raspberry plants, biennial canes grow on a perennial root system. Usually primocanes (vegetative) and floricanes (reproductive) are present at the same time. This complex system is highly plastic because the various plant parts
