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. Labour input during the tenure of the study was lower for angle- than for spindle-trained trees.
