Flower and fruit abortion is a yield-limiting factor in many crops ( Bacci et al., 2006 ; Goldschmidt, 1999 ; Halbrecq et al., 2005 ). Abortion can be caused by unfavorable conditions such as temperature stress ( Guilioni et al., 1997 ), low

( Darnell et al., 2006 ; Knight et al., 1996 ). In this annual system, raspberry plants are removed after harvest and are replaced with new prechilled long-canes for the next season. Previous work has shown that yields in this annual system are less than
