high tunnel production could be sold when fruit is relatively scarce in the local market, allowing producers the potential opportunity to receive better prices. Mobile Platform for Assessing Light Interception in Orchards Lampinen et al. (p. 237

because light interception does not significantly influence the fruit coloring ( Fig. 2 ). ‘Ivana’ has low incidence of fruit cracking and little preharvest drop. Yield was not different from ‘Spring lady’ and ‘Springcrest’ with slightly greater average

relied on the use of overhead HID lamps for photosynthetic irradiation. However, overhead lighting tends to favor upper leaf layers to maximize light interception incident at the top of the foliar canopy. This results in mutual shading in the lower leaf

, spring frost, diseases, light interception, and canopy architecture manipulation can also impact the bearing pattern of apple trees ( Davis, 2002 ; Fulford, 1965 ; Willaume et al., 2004 ). High crop yields inhibit flower initiation. Chan and Cain (1967

allowed earlier light interception. The addition of far red resulted in greater leaf elongation than red alone, but the epinastic response was less. This net effect was to increase the available leaf area for light interception over the other treatments
