‘Multifort’ significantly improved total and marketable fruit yields at almost all N rates applied in this study. Moreover, grafted plants tended to show greater potential for yield improvement with the increase of N than non-grafted plants, particularly in

. Canopy development of both treatments was equivalent in the third cropping year and the tree row space was filled ( Table 4 ). This indicates that pruning practices must be modified to leave more bearing wood in mature trees to maintain yield potential

, and individual fruit weight of ‘Camarosa’ strawberry plants grown at Clanton, AL. z Discussion The current study revealed potential risks to strawberry plant development and, to a lesser degree, crop yield when applying tank mixes of

stark differences in climate and production systems used among studies. Nonetheless, the limited evidence from this study and others suggests that ‘Florida Radiance’ and ‘Evie 2’ may have high yield potential across more than one production system and

that under appropriate irrigation and N management practices for tomato production in Florida, N application rates higher than 179 kg·ha −1 may not improve tomato yield; hence, there are potential economic and environmental benefits associated with

. Documentation and knowledge of honey bee activity, colony strength, and potential pollination limitations would enable blueberry growers to work with researchers and other entities to refine their approaches to enhance pollination, as well as overall crop yields

flowering pattern of the CGH BL was not more concentrated than the flowering pattern of ‘FL 47’. Although unexpected, this finding may be the result of high N fertilizer rate, which can potentially decrease early yields of tomato and generally delays

great potential to enhance early-season seedless cucumber yields. Although previous studies showed that squash rootstocks inhibited flowering of grafted cucumbers ( Satoh, 1996 ), the inhibitory effect was not observed on the two squash rootstocks
