Growth regulators as aids to the mechanical harvesting of cherries

, : Growth regulators as aids to the mechanical harvesting of cherries. Acta Horticulturae (34): 373-376

Ethephon reduced the force required to separate the fruit from the stems of several cvs of sweet and sour cherry. However, the decrease in fruit retention force was not always parallelled by an increase in the ease with which the fruit could be shaken from the tree, since this depended also on the formation of separative tissue between fruit and stem.
