The bulletin advocates a radical departure from the present system and opens the way to many other
improvements of cultural methods. The principle underlying the practice is the production of earlier
fruiting branches, at the expense of the vegetative branches. Late thinning and leaving the plants
close together in the rows, when practiced together, will secure an early short-season crop.
