Screening of eco-friendly thinning agents and adjusting mechanical thinning on ‘Gala’, ‘Golden Delicious’ and ‘Fuji’ apple trees
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2018-05-30) Fructicultura
Fruit thinning is the most important yet difficult practice that drives orchard profitability. High labor costs and difficulty to improve return bloom by hand thinning have left chemical thinning as the ...
Brevis thinning efficacy at different fruit size and fluorescence on ‘Gala’ and ‘Fuji’ apples
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-07-26) Fructicultura
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 ...
Hail nets do not affect the efficacy of metamitron for chemical thinning of apple tree
(Journal of Horticultural Science and Biotechnology, 2019-06-19) Fructicultura
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 ...
Blooming under Mediterranean Climate: Estimating Cultivar-Specific Chill and Heat Requirements of Almond and Apple Trees Using a Statistical Approach
(Agronomy, 2019-11-15) Fructicultura; Protecció Vegetal Sostenible
Climate change, and specifically global temperature increase, is expected to alter plant phenology. Temperate deciduous fruit trees have cultivar-specific chill and heat requirements to break dormancy ...
Effects of Metamitron under Different Relative Humidity Conditions on the Fruit Abscission of Malus domestica Borkh. Cultivars
(Horticulturae, 2020-11-23) Fructicultura
Metamitron is an apple (Malus domestica Borkh.) fruit thinner that acts by reducing the photosynthetic capacity of trees. Relative humidity may influence thinning efficacy; however, the broadness of ...
