latter gives erratic results and is not efficient when pollination from a specific pollen source is desired. Hand pollination improves fruit set and substantially boosts fruit yield per tree by increasing the fruit size and number, the major yield

(2005) posit that the lack of a direct causal relationship between the source-to-sink ratio and accumulation of TSS makes this difficult to assess and forecast. Indeed, we did not find a difference on basic fruit chemistry at harvest in the 2 years and

( Costes et al., 2008 ). But L-PEACH is the first model to simulate growth and carbon source–sink relationships within the architectural framework of a peach tree over multiple years. Moreover, L-systems allow multiple interactions with the model

/g DW, Table 4 ). The occurrence of an adverse climate event or damage by diseases or pests would cause a source-sink imbalance (even in fall), due to the decrease of active photosynthetic foliage ( Flore and Layne, 1999 ). McCamant (1988) , cited by
