Title: Effect of Training System on Precocity and Yield in 'Anjou' Pear
Authors: L.G. Denby, M. Meheriuk, and R. Brownlee
Four training systems were evaluated for their
ability to promote precocity in 'Anjou' pears.
Both the angle-trained and spindle-trained trees
produced significantly higher yields than cen
tral-leader trees with or without spreaders in the
first 5 years of production after which produc
tion was similar in all 4 systems.
during the tenure of the study was lower for
angle- than for spindle-trained trees.
