Yield and Quality in Relation to Different Crop Loads on Tas-A-Ganesh Table Grapes (Vitis vnifera L.)

R.G. Somkuwar and S.D. Ramteke

Abstract:
The effect of variation in bunch load (40, 50, 60 and 80 bunches/vine) on yield and quality components in table grapes were studied at the research farm of National Research Centre for Grapes, Pune during the year 2003-2005. The trial was conducted on five-year-old Tas-A-Ganesh grapes and was compared with vines grafted on Dog Ridge rootstock. In the grafted vines, the average bunch size was higher than own rooted vines. Higher berry diameter of 17.23 mm was recorded in grafted vines as against 16.21 mm in own rooted vines. The yield per vine in grafted vines was increased by 44.93% over own rooted vines. The total soluble solids also reduced with the increase in yield per vine. As the bunch load per vine was increased, there was reduction in quality in terms of berry diameter and TSS; however, the total yield per vine was increased.
