Optimising a cherry orchard and maximising production and economic returns: that is the aim of the SWEET experiment by Salvi Vivai and the University of Bologna, which combines the extraordinary characteristics of the Sweet cherry with the advantages of a high-density orchard.
Traditionally, Salvi Vivai organises an open day in the field to demonstrate this cherry family to its customers: in 2020 our open day has been online, with a free webinar!
During the webinar, the research results will are illustrated, paying attention to the significant economic outcomes and sales figures achieved.
A webinar focused on so-called “ladder-free” systems. Today, cherry farming is increasingly oriented to high-performance, high-return crops. Understanding this demand, Salvi Vivai has focused its attention on intensive orchards, with a number of advantages:
- Huge savings on harvest management costs
- High productivity, right from the second year
- Large-calibre fruits with excellent organoleptic characteristics
