Raspberry production increased over 100% in a retractable roofTo improve the profitability of raspberry production, Cravo began working with Dr Eric Hanson from Michigan State University. A small trial this year in the retractable X Frame has resulted in at least a 100% increase in yield compared to plants grown outside. This trial also led to strategies to increase plants per hectare and to make it easier to manage the spotted wing drosophila since the walls on the retractable roof can remain closed help prevent entry.
