Consulting

I have conducted and published numerous research projects and articles in many aspects of deciduous fruit, citrus, table grapes, and wine grapes physiology over the last 30 years. The research areas include rootstock physiology in apples, plums, pears, peaches, and nectarines, cultivar selection for various deciduous fruits including apples, stone fruits, table grape and wine grapes, photosynthesis, mineral partitioning, irrigation systems and strategies in decidious fruit, postharvest physiology, development of various bio-regulators and blossom and fruit thinners. ***9
