Recent advances of high density planting in apple

Devanakonda Revati Rajanya
The requisite for preliminary production of fruit crops viz., Apple, Peach, Pear, Apricot, and Cherry has become censorious as the compactness of the plants over the past half century has raised with the ameliorated management systems. For apple cultivation, dwarfing rootstocks are the pointers to alter the size of the trees, spacing and preliminary production. The other development methods which involve feathered trees, minimal pruning techniques and good knowledge on limb angle also resulted in drastic alteration in the density of apple trees. The pruning techniques and tree forms have been advanced with the knowledge on light interception and light distribution through the canopy. Dwarfing rootstocks benefit was full in case of apple and pear than the rest of the fruit crops. Even though the advanced techniques for high density planting were followed in other fruit crops, the density of the plants have not raised. Without disturbing the quality of the fruit, the concept of high density planting has increased the productivity of many fruit crops, majorly Apple. The preliminary yields of fruits will be obtained with the implementation of high density orchard planting. Even though the investment for high density orchard planting was bit high compared to conventional orchard development, the returns obtained were enormously high. This technique has the record of A Grade fruits with respect to quality as well price. Thus high density planting was recommended to improve the production, productivity and quality of the fruits.
