the second objective was to recommend fertilizer rates that optimize these same factors. We chose to use response surface methodology and canonical analysis as aids in modeling and examining the relationships between fertilizer rates and plant

rapidly during storage with less than 1% germinating after 5 d of storage. Yates et al. (1986) optimized the germination solution to 15% sucrose, 0.05% Ca(NO 3 ) 2 , and 0.01% H 3 BO 3 , but also found that pecan pollen loses viability in a matter of

) necessitates optimization of protocols for culture initiation and maintenance. Although somatic embryogenesis from Vitis was reported previously ( Carmi et al., 2005 ; Gray and Mortensen, 1987 ; Kikkert et al., 2005 ; Perrin et al., 2001 ), few varieties

As the Pacific Northwest fruit industry shifts to precision-based management strategies for their orchards, tools are needed to understand tree physiology in the orchard to optimize fruit quality. Leaf area index is the ratio between the summed area
