Defoliation fulfilment in correct terms, range and intensity effects highly on conditions of bunches and quantity of their contentual matters. Due care reduction of foliar surface together with sunshine allows better access of air to the proximity of bunches and their quicker drying up. The development of fungal diseases is not so quick. Notably hold under especially the peril of charging by cluster with Botrytis, whose harvest its possible take away to the later term. Better insolation at the same time abetment by soaking of clusters and degradation of apple acid.
It is possible to make one–shot or gradual defoliation. By smaller growers can the defoliation make by hand, or near bigger with mechanization. In both cases constitute costs on implementation indispensable load sum.
