Thorough spraying with a .001% soln. of naphthaleneacetic acid as soon as the first evidence of pre-harvest drop was noted was effective in preventing the drop of apples and pears during a period of 3 weeks. No detrimental effects of the spray wer...

The treated fruits recorded slightly higher weight, volume and...
