Title:
Effect of defoliation and fruit thinning on fruit quality of `Crimson Seedless' grape. 
Abstract:
`Crimson Seedless' vines were treated with 5 defoliation managements: (1) leaf basal removal (LBR), (2) leaf basal removal + hedging (LBR+H), (3) leaf basal removal + sterile shoot removal (SSR+LBR), (4) combination of treatments 2 and 3 (LBR+SSR+H), (5) leaf basal removal + fruit thinning (LBR+FTH). Defoliation improved cluster weight, size, and compactness. Berries were bigger (size, weight) with LBR + FTH, followed by the other treatments except LBR+H+SSR. Moreover, defoliation accelerated th...    »
