Following table developed by Brian Keats is derived from the above research papers.

It summarises at what lunar aspect planting researchers obtained greater yields by weight.

Lunar Aspects Key
 Wax  Waxing Moon - heading towards Full Moon
 Wan  Waning Moon - heading towards New Moon
 1Q   Moon Phase 1st Quarter
  3Q Moon Phase 3rd Quarter
 Asc  Towards Peak Ascension (curve going up in Antipodean Astro Calendar)
 Desc  Towards Peak Descension (curve going down in Antipodean Astro Calendar)
 Pg  Around Perigee Moon (Moon closest to Earth in its orbital path)
 Ag  Around Apogee Moon (Moon farthest from Earth in its orbital path)
 Node  At a descending or ascending Lunar Node
 Zod Constellation of the Sidereal Zodiac that the Moon is in front of
 F 1-2 days before Full Moon (more specific than waxing)
 N 1-2 days before New Moon (more specific than waning)
 ^  Increased yields
 x  Decreased yields
* These researches were done in the northern hemisphere where Virgo is a descending constellation. The Moon was also waxing. 

#Nodes were not specifically tested for.

Comment:- These researches indicate quantitative effects like weight of yield. Qualitative effects like smell or taste or vitality were not sought and will be hard to objectively discern.
