On September 18, an expert group carried out a field test of the cooperative project between HAAFS and Dingzhou City, “demonstration of table grape efficient production technology in Dingzhou City”, which is undertaken by Institute of Shijiazhuang Fruit Research.
After listening to the work report of the project team and inspecting the application of the technology in the demonstration area, the expert group gave test opinions as follows:
1.Simplified cultivation technology and standardized IPM technology of grape were applied in the demonstration area. The grape trees were strong, the tree vigor was middle and the damage of disease and pests was relatively light. The fruiting points of different trees were consistent, the shape of the ear was beautiful, the tightness was moderate, the size and the color of the grape were uniform.
2.In the demonstration area, the average weight of a bunch of grapes ‘Shine Muscat’ was 660 g, the average weight of a grape was 12.7 g, the soluble solid content was 21.8%, the average yield was 1475kg/mu and the high-quality rate was 96%, which was 5% higher than that of ‘Shine Muscat’ cultivated with local conventional technology.
