Researching practices to support cherry production

This video shares findings from a research project that studied orchard management practices for optimizing water use and enhancing soil biological resilience.

The project looked at the effects of adding compost or wood chip bark mulch to soils. Findings showed that both reduced the abundance of nematodes and maintained a neutral pH, among other impacts.

Results also indicated that reducing irrigation after harvest (deficit irrigation) had no impact on fruit quality and yield.
