FACTORS AFFECTING SUCKER PRODUCTION IN HAZELNUT

L. Radicati, I. Martino, G. Vergano
The influence of cultivar, propagation method and training system on the sucker production in hazelnut was investigated.

Cultivar suckering aptitude. 20-years old plants of different cultivars have been ranked from highly suckering (e.g. 'Tonda Gentile delle Langhe') to scarcely suckering (e.g. 'Negret'). Propagation method. 12-years old plants (cv Tonda Gentile delle Langhe), obtained from mound layerage produced yearly a significantly lesser amount of suckers than same aged plants obtained from rooted suckers. Training system. No significant differences were noted between the vase and the bush trained plants.
