In <i>Citrus</i>, gibberellic acid (GA<sub>3</sub>) applied at the floral bud inductive period significantly reduces flowering intensity. This effect is being used to improve the fruit set of parthenocarpic cultivars that t...

The effect of spraying commercial GA on alternate cropping and yield of 'Late Valencia' orange trees was studied in detail at 3 sites over 3 seasons. Two applications of GA were applied at a minimum concentration of 25 ppm (in 2 experime...

A single GA3-spray (5-20 mg/l) at petal-fall to the entire tree enhanced initial set in the sweet orange cv. Navelate but this effect was transient and in most cases final yield was not increased. When spraying was followed by girdling, final yiel...
