Chemical induction of lateral branches (feathers)






Acta Horticulturae (65): 129-138

Chemical induction of lateral branches (feathers)

A mixture of fatty acid esters (Off-Shoot-O), MB 25105 or NC 9634 (phenylthiadiazolyl thioacetic acid) were successfully used to stimulate branching in 3 apple and 2 pear cvs in the nursery. Treatments which killed the leader shoot tip or severely checked its growth reduced tree height and produced feathers which were more upright in habit than those produced by treatments which only temporarily checked the growth of the leading shoot.
