Attempting an experiment with a few rows of a (FOPS: Future Orchard Production System – New Zealand / UFO: Upright Fruiting Offshoot – MSU). The idea is to grow multiple leaders from the tree by using its propensity to want to grow toward the sun by laying the main stalk flat and selecting multiple leaders that grow from the buds along the branch we’re laying down. So we plan on trying to grow between 6-8 leaders on the trees spaced 6 ft. apart. A little more work at the beginning with the training involved, but it should cut the vigor out of the trees and make them more precocious. We planted 4 row of Fuji and two of Gala to see how they respond. #ag #farm #experiment #fruit #fruta #manzana #huerto #farm #country #bella #experimento #anochecer #trees #arboles #puremichigan #science #farmlife #agdaily #horticulture #FOPS #UFO
