Influence of pre- and post-harvest application of ethephon (2-chloroethyl phosphonic acid) on tomatoes

, : Influence of pre- and post-harvest application of ethephon (2-chloroethyl phosphonic acid) on tomatoes. Acta Horticulturae (53): 53-58

Ethephon at 1000 p.p.m. was applied to tomatoes (a) 10 days after fruit set, (b) at the mature green stage or (c) when 30% of the fruits were ripe. Treatment (a) caused defoliation and fruit fall, delayed ripening and decreased the yield. Treatment (b) produced smaller fruits than in the control or in (c) plants. Treatment (c) hastened ripening, increased the percentage of marketable fruit but did not affect the total yield.
