How UFOs can improve sweet cherry production

(American Society for Horticultural Science) Researchers investigated first-year establishment of future fruiting structure for a new sweet cherry canopy architecture, Upright Fruiting Offshoots. At planting, trunk angles of 45° or 60° from horizontal resulted in increased shoot growth compared with 30°, and also increased shoot distribution when bud selection was not imposed.
