Default Re: New concept GM high density field

Thank you for the response Louis.

I think I will try your deleafing technique on one of my namwa pups to see if it grows faster in my patch. My namwas fully unroll a new leaf every seven days. If I could trim that to five days it would reduce the vegetative phase by almost 30% which would be awesome in my zone.

I suppose there is a risk that by reducing the number of leaves fruit quality or number may suffer due to a reduction in total/accumulated photosynthesis activity over the growth period since there are fewer leaves but for me and my zone that is probably an acceptable risk/trade-off if it increases the probability of obtaining fruit reliably each year.

Your field looks great! So much green!
