Technique for stable production of pear
1998 - 2003
Pear is recognized as one of "tasty fruits", and is getting popular and enjoying nationwide expansion of consumption, as a local specialty. In Hokkaido as well, a variety called "Brandy wine" of excellent taste is cultured replacing a part of apples and Japanese pears, among others. Pear is a cold-resistant fruit tree, and can be cultured with less input power compared with apples. This feature is suitable to the mixed culture with apple. Scarce rain in Hokkaido gives superiority of less disease-development, relatively less supply of herbicide. The present way of culture using rootstock makes the tree high, difficult to manage in maintenance. In order to promote culture with less input power, culture with low tree height (approx. 3.0m) is to be investigated with utilization of dwarf rootstock.
