Abstract

The main objective of regulating the load of trees is to obtain good flowering the following year, optimal and regular yields and good internal and external fruit quality. The various products approved in Switzerland for chemical thinning, as well as mechanical thinning, allow the grower to adapt ...

Abstract

To achieve a high quantity of premium class fruit, chemical thinning is an important component of crop load management in apples. For this purpose, the triazine-type photosynthetic inhibitor metamitron was registered for fruit thinning in Germany. Frequent studies demonstrated consistent thinning...

Abstract

Three thinning processes were compared for three consecutive years on the cultivar Gala, clone Royal: mechanical (M), mechanical reinforced by the application of vinasse (MV) and synthetic products (hormones, H). For the 3 processes, in order to measure the importance of their respective...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the thinning efficacy of metamitron applied either alone (single or double application) or in combination with 6-benzyladenine (BA) or naphthalene acetic acid (NAA) in young 'Gala' and 'Golden Delicious' apple trees. The experiment was carried out during the...

Abstract

The preceding climate change demonstrates overwintering of pathogens that lead to increased incidence of insects and pest attack. Integration of ecological and physiological/molecular approaches are imperative to encounter pathogen attack in order to enhance crop yield. The present study aimed to...

Abstract

Apple trees tend to bear an excess of young fruits (fruitlets). Chemical thinning with an application of bioregulators early in the season is currently the most common solution to adjust fruit load. However, the results of this approach are highly inconsistent between seasons. In the present study, ...

Abstract

The present investigations were carried out on 12-year old trees of nectarine cultivar May Fire raised on wild peach seedling rootstocks during 2014 and 2015. Experimental trees were subjected to nine different treatments NAA at 40 and 60 ppm; Ethrel at 200 and 300 ppm applied one and two week...

AbstractFull Text

Knowledge of the physiology of natural fruitlet shedding is especially important to insure thinning efficiency in apple production. The effect of partial spur leaf removal on shedding, as well as on fruit quality and bourse shoot growth, was investigated. Removing spur leaves increased shedding,...

Abstract

Gibberellic acid (GA3) spray application during flowering is practiced for berry thinning in commercial vineyards but may influence inflorescence primordia development in latent buds, leading to variability in vine fruitfulness and yield in the following season. The effects of timing (10% capfall...

Abstract

Gala apple (Malus domestica Borkh.) trees are prone to heavy cropping but respond to chemical fruitlet thinners to reduce crop load and improve fruit quality. Environmental concerns over the fate of the chemical fruitlet thinner carbaryl is widely acknowledged, but crop load management options are...
