Effect of fruit tree viruses

Acta Horticulturae: 59-82

Effect of fruit tree viruses

a. Campbell, A.I.; Posnette, A.F.; Cropley, R. (Long Ashton Res. Sta., UK). The performance of EMLA apple trees (59-65). Apple orchards on different clonal rootstocks were planted 8-10 yr ago in England to compare the growth, cropping and general performance of East Malling and Long Ashton (EMLA) material with trees infected with several viruses and mycoplasma-like organisms. Most of the infections reduced tree growth, crop wt. and fruit size.

With the aim of increasing fruit size, 0, 25, 50 or 75% of inflorescences were removed at 1- or 2-week intervals, commencing at or soon after the time of initial fruit set in early Oct., from 3-year-old mango cv. Sensation trees. The fruits remain...

Five-year-old Sensation mango trees were subjected to pruning and fruit thinning treatments.

The open-centre-trained trees had greater girth than the hedgerow-trained...

The effects of paclobutrazol applications on fruit size in mango cv. Sensation, and on fruit retention in Tommy Atkins, were investigated in the Northern Province of South Africa. One or 10 ml of paclobutrazol (as Cultar) was diluted with water to...
