Post petal fall applications of gibberellins improve fruit set on pear
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-03-30)
Commercial pear production has become increasingly difficult over the last decade, with low fruit set being one of the main factors leading to poor yield of pear orchards. The use of gibberellins to increase fruit set has ...
Use of root pruning, paclobutrazol, and prohexadione-Ca combination strategies to control growth and improve productivity on pear trees
(Spanish Journal of Agricultural Research, 2019-07)
Growth control in pear orchards is essential, not just to reduce competition between vegetative and reproductive sinks, but also to improve return bloom, yield and fruit quality. The goal to optimize growth control, return ...
Effect of different application rates of metamitron as fruitlet chemical thinner on thinning efficacy and fluorescence inhibition in Gala and Fuji apple
(Plant Growth Regulation, 2019-08-30)
Crop thinning is an important and difficult agricultural practice. Knowing the effect of the application dose of a product is a crucial element of any thinning program. The aims of this study were to investigate the effect ...
Brevis thinning efficacy at different fruit size and fluorescence on ‘Gala’ and ‘Fuji’ apples
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-07-26)
Brevis thinning efficacy depends on climatic and cultivar conditions. The objective of this work was to evaluate the efficacy of one application of Brevis in ‘Gala’ and ‘Fuji’ apple applied at different fruit sizes (fruit ...
Hail nets do not affect the efficacy of metamitron for chemical thinning of apple tree
(Journal of Horticultural Science and Biotechnology, 2019-06-19)
Hail nets reduce photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) and alter the environment under the netting in apple orchards. Thus, we investigated the effect of nets on the efficacy of metamitron, a short-term photosynthesis ...
