Raspberries Crop

Fertigation timing and fertilizer composition affects growth and yield in raspberry long cane and field production

Abstract: Successful biennial raspberry production depends on optimal conditions in all developmental phases during the two years. Adequate vegetative growth with many nodes on the primocanes in the first year will provide many flowering sites, and thereafter, favourable conditions for flower initiation and differentiation will optimize yield potential.

Growing Fruits: Raspberries and other bramble crops

Abstract: Raspberries can be an enjoyable crop for the conscientious gardener. A well-maintained raspberry bed can provide fruit for 10 to 20 years. Red raspberries grow well throughout New England, but black and purple raspberries and blackberries lack the hardiness to be grown north of well-sheltered sites in southern Maine and New Hampshire.

Guide to growing raspberries

Abstract: Raspberries will grow almost anywhere provided they are planted on well drained soil. They enjoy a position in full sun or in light shade and prefer a soil with a pH of between 6.5 and 6.7. On heavy soils and on shallow, sandy or gravelly land, soil improvement will be required, for example digging in some well rotted organic matter.
