The influence of growth regulators on fruit production in young trees of Bramley's Seedling

Acta Horticulturae (34): 221-224

The influence of growth regulators on fruit production in young trees of Bramley's Seedling

Treatment with daminozide or chlormequat was effective in inducing fruit buds and/or reducing extension growth in Bramley's Seedling apple trees. Fruit production depended on effective pollination, and where this occurred high quality fruit was produced with yield equivalents of 17 595, 19 180 and 30 119 kg/ha, respectively, in the fifth, sixth and seventh years after planting.
