Fruit bud dormancy and flower initiation in raspberry - HH1518TSF

The project objective will be to identify methods of cane manipulation, differences that already occur within the existing germplasm (e.g. chilling requirement) and cultural practices that would enhance out of season raspberry crop production by reducing the effect of bud dormancy and enhancing flower initiation and development.
