-fruiting blackberry in an unheated tunnel extended the harvest season ≈3 weeks later in the fall in Oregon’s temperate climate ( Thompson et al., 2009 ). Research in primocane-fruiting raspberry showed that primocane tipping had some effect on fruiting season and

Tip rot, or restricted end rot, is a sweetpotato disease/disorder with unknown etiology that has caused recent problems in Mississippi and possibly other production areas. Symptoms appear after 2 to 4 weeks in storage resulting in significant losses

.g., temperature and light) influence plant growth and development. The rate of plant development is controlled by the mean daily temperature (MDT) of the apical meristem (e.g., shoot tip) ( Faust and Heins, 1993 ; Niu et al., 2001 ; Roberts and Summerfield, 1987

Soft-tipping (removal of 2–5 cm) primocane-blackberry canes once ( Drake and Clark, 2003 ; Strik et al., 2008 and 2012 ; Thompson et al., 2009 ) or double-tipping (main cane and branches; Thompson et al., 2009 ) has been shown to increase yield

Excessive vine vigor often leads to issues such as poor canopy ventilation, inconsistent fruit ripening, and a high incidence of cluster rot. Hedging, or shoot tipping, is one common approach to managing vigorous vegetative growth in vertical
