A Review of Dormancy and Chilling Requirements in Raspberries

Raspberry growers increasingly hold canes in cold store during dormancy, but our knowledge of the exact chilling requirements of floricane raspberry cultivars has been lacking. This report provides our current understanding of the dormancy process in raspberry and describes a new approach to mathematical modelling of the dormancy response of different floricane cultivars.
