EVALUATION OF PLUM CULTIVAR PRODUCTIVITY IN COMMERCIAL ORCHARDS IN FIRST GROWING YEARS AFTER PLANTING
The objective of this study was evaluation of plum cultivar productivity in commercial plantings in first years of cultivation. Plum cultivars were evaluated in three locations with different tree density. High yields were recorded by the cultivar Hanita with cumulated yield after six years of cultivation 102.0 t/ha and by the cultivar Elena 98.1 t/ha. Cultivars Hanita, Elena, Katinka and Tophit were evaluated only six years due to the young planting. Cultivars President with cumulated yield 198.8 t/ha (in location Končina A), Stanley with 156.2 t/ha, Opal with 114.0 t/ha and Presenta with 82.1 t/ha were evaluated as the best cultivars after eight years of cultivation. Characteristics of fruits were recorded in recently grown cultivars. Results confirm higher production of newly cultivated cultivars in modern high dense plantings.
