The meadow orchard - a new concept of apple production based on growth regulators

, : The meadow orchard - a new concept of apple production based on growth regulators. Acta Horticulturae (34): 213-220

Attempts to increase flower initiation in maiden trees of several apple cvs by means of growth retardants, chemical pruning agents or hand-pinching of the shoot tip are described. Some cvs, such as Bramley's Seedling, were found to react best when grown as 'multi-shoot' rather than 'single-shoot' trees.

The treated trees were about 40% shorter than the control trees but had a simil...
