these groves is given in Table 2 . In 2008, the tree canopies measured 18 × 16 × 13 ft, and when pruned 3 ft from the ground had an average canopy volume of 2912 ft 3 . When mechanically pruned in a 3-year cycle in which the east side of the row was

the end of the experiment (Nov. 2006), tree survival, tree circumference, tree height, canopy width in two compass directions, and number of root suckers per tree were recorded. Canopy volume was calculated assuming a conical canopy shape. The distance

microclimate variations in high tunnels throughout the growing season or as plant canopy volume increases. More information is needed about the benefits of high tunnel cropping systems and new production technologies for environmental manipulation to improve

can eliminate the C Las from the whole plant. Parameters considered in this study were canopy volume and density, C Las titer, yield, leaf carbohydrates, and gene expression of a subset of genes. Materials and Methods Plant material, treatments, and

. These were then multiplied to calculate a canopy volume [growth index (GI)]. Root ball volume was measured by first carefully removing the container substrate to a point of visible root tips. The remaining undisturbed root ball was then enclosed in a

strongly related to canopy volume per hectare, which was primarily affected by planting density. These results demonstrate that the interaction between trees does not influence yield at a young age. Clearly, results from these trials at later age will be

a sum of all the axes TCSAs; we used the final TCSA measurement for all calculations. In 2017 (fourth leaf) data were collected for tree canopy volume by measuring tree height (70 cm above graft union), tree depth and tree width and expressed in

hurricane damage to citrus trees Tree canopy volume loss measurement after hurricanes may be valuable for crop insurance and fruit yield estimation, but visual estimation of tree damage is laborious, time consuming, and difficult to quantify. Zaman et al

branching to a few latent axillary buds near the origin of the limb. Short stub cuts are recommended for spindle-type apple tree training to stimulate the regrowth of new lateral branches, to restrict the canopy volume and branching density, and to maintain

Plant characteristics. Tree height was measured from soil level to the highest growing point. Branch length of each branch used for leaf collection was also measured from its origin at the trunk to the farthest growing point. Canopy volume was
