The effects were studied of flurenol (9-hydroxy-fluorene-carboxylic acid) and chlor-flurenol (2-substituted flurenol) on checking shoot growth in the apple varieties Belle de Boskoop and Tydeman's Early Worcester and on correcting alternate b...

Aqueous solutions of 30-40 p.p.m. applied 10 days after full bloom had a thinning effect similar to the routine hand thinning commonly carried out 40 days after full bloom. Small-scale trials with 14C-labelled morphactins have suggested a possible...

In the first 5 years after planting the root systems of pear, apple, plum and cherry trees extended to 2.2-3.2 times the area of the crowns, and this extent exceeded the depth by 8, 26, 59 and 73%, respectively. The rootlets developed mainly under...
