The Response of Two Chokeberry Cultivars to the Influence of Climatic Factors in Bistrita Area, Romania
Black chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa Michx.) is one of the most cultivated species in recent years, gaining consumer appreciation due to its fruit’s bioactive compounds. This aim of this paper was to study the behavior of two chokeberry cultivars ‘Viking’ and ‘Galicjanka’ under climatic factors in Bistrita area, within an experimental plot established at Fruit Research and Development Station Bistrita. Resistant to low temperatures but sensitive to drought, the two chokeberry cultivars ‘Viking’ and ‘Galicjanka’, have recorded a positive development evolution in pedoclimatic conditions in Bistrita area. For the success of this crop, it is necessary to ensure all the parameters to obtain a high-quality production, so that the deficiencies caused by insufficient water supply can be prevented by implementing technological measures that reduce the negative impact of the ever- changing environment.
