The effect of defoliation, ringing and pinching apple shoots on growth and flower bud development

The effect of defoliation, ringing and pinching apple shoots on growth and flower bud development

Prace Instytutu Sadownictwa w Skierniewicach 15: 63-72

In one trial with 1-year-old Jonathan trees grafted on M.9 the mature or young leaves or leaf primordia were removed or the shoot tips were pinched, and in another trial 5-year-old Wealthy trees grafted on Antonovka seedlings were treated as above or were ringed at the tip, centre or base of a shoot. Removing young leaves or leaf primordia retarded shoot growth, shortened the internodes and stimulated the development of lateral shoots.
