The effect of growth regulators on maturation, quality and pre-harvest drop of stone fruits

, : The effect of growth regulators on maturation, quality and pre-harvest drop of stone fruits. Acta Horticulturae (34): 449-455

Various peach and apricot cvs showed early and more uniform ripening and improved fruit colour following sprays of 2,4,5-TP, daminozide or ethephon, but these effects were often accompanied by undesirable responses such as softening, cessation of growth or abscission.
