Improving propagation in intensive cultivation systems for a Kent-bred raspberry variety


Project objectives

The annual demand for high quality long-cane raspberry material is continuing to rise, but demand is outstripping supply and the quality of plants purchased is not always uniform with survival rates lower than growers would expect. This project will investigate the use of commercially available beneficial microorganisms in raspberry propagation to improve plant establishment with fewer inputs, with the aim of increasing the survival rate of the plants whilst enhancing plant uniformity and final yields.
