Effect of Alar on maturity and quality of fruit and mineral composition of leaves of plum cv. Peshawari



Effect of Alar on maturity and quality of fruit and mineral composition of leaves of plum cv. Peshawari



Plant Science 5: 132-136



In trials with young plum trees a single spray of Alar (daminozide) at 1000, 2000 or 5000 p.p.m. was applied to the young fruits and foliage in April, and the fruits were picked at maturity. The percentage of ripe fruits was greatly increased by all application rates, compared with unsprayed controls; fruit weight, pulp:stone ratio and reducing sugars were also enhanced, total sugars and soluble solids showing the same tendency.
