Studies were made from October to December of maturity parameters, including fruit volume, weight, oil content and removal force in Nabli olives in 2 districts, and on the effects of Ethrel [ethephon] at 600 p.p.m. and ALSOL (2-chloroethyl-tris(2&...

Significant reductions in fruit removal force and good fruit abscission were obtained, especially with ethephon. High con...

However, the use of abscission-inducing chemicals in early November was not considered advisable owing to the low oil content of...
