The core of research done on cherries at HVRL is focusing on different planting systems and rootstock’s influence on yield and fruit quality. This new planting and training systems should allow an easily approachable fruiting zone from the ground level. This could be achieve with pruning, which if done correctly, should minimize permanent trunk, increase light distribution within a canopy and expand fruiting wood.

Plant growth regulators and their influence on cherry size and use in the prevention of berries splitting that is consider to be a critical factor in profitable cherry production is the second field of interest in the cheery research conducted at HVRL.
