Chemical induction of branching in nursery trees

, : Chemical induction of branching in nursery trees. Acta Horticulturae (34): 123-128

A mixture of methyl esters of the C6, C8, C10 and C12 fatty acids was successfully used to stimulate branching of several cvs of apple, pear and plum. Concentrations within the range of 20 000 to 30 000 p.p.m. were most effective in killing the shoot tip and stimulating branch production, but apple showed varietal differences in response.
