Training candycot (fancy apricot) trees on V-shaped trellises
The more sunlight a tree can intercept, the more photosynthesis will happen, the more tree grows, the more it gives.. So, a trellis structure maximizes sunlight interception by the tree leading to better tree health and higher yields. In the absence of trellising, the tree canopy spreads like an umbrella where outer parts of it get a lot of sun but the interior part struggles.
