On those days we stop picking early in the day since fruit that is picked in the heat of the day is softer than fruit picked in the morning and is therefore more susceptible to bruising. Warner, Good Fruit Grower, February, 2011. Vigorous, lightly cropped trees treated with GA respond to a greater extent than more heavily cropped trees. In addition, fruit from over cropped trees tend to have a higher percentage of mechanical injury Facteau, 1988.
Consequently, all of our markets are located some distance from the region of production. Eddy, Growing Produce, May, 2012. See the WSU irrigation scheduler mobile app manual.
Gallardo, WSU Extension Fact Sheet FS034E, 2011. Incorporating new technology A new orchard provides the opportunity to integrate new technological tools into your site.
How much do fruits and vegetables cost? Use replant disease tolerant root stock, which can provide substantial mitigation of replant disorder. If available, historic temperature extremes, frost risk, average bloom date, consistency of cropping for neighboring farms, etc. One packinghouse in Oregon requires that fruit be delivered to the packinghouse within two hours of harvest so that it can be cooled with a hydrocooler.
New plantings must be monitored closely for any signs of insect or mite pests or diseases caused by fungi, bacteria and viruses. Multiple applications, compared to a larger single application, have the advantage of greater protection against rain. We then dump our cherries into bins and cover them with wet foam as they are transported to the packinghouse.
Drip irrigation delivers consistent water to new plantings. Blocks that are close to residential areas may necessitate buffer rows to reduce the potential for off-target pesticide drift.
For many fruits and vegetables, a 1-cup equivalent equals the weight of enough edible food to fill a measuring cup.
If the roots dry out, they will die.
