PERFORMANCE OF COMMERCIAL AND EXPERIMENTAL PLANTINGS OF TATURA TRELLIS

B. van den Ende, D.J. Chalmers, W.K. Thompson
Commercial orchard evaluation of the Tatura Trellis system began in 1976. Peach trees (Prunus persica L. Batsch) produced a total of 78 tonnes per ha canninggrade fruit in the first four years. An assessment of costs and returns is presented, which indicate that growers can reach the financial break-even point four years after establishing a Tatura Trellis orchard of clingstone peach trees in Australia. Data from experimental apple and pear plantings are also presented.
