Effects of some growth regulators on the development and ripening of peach fruits

Acta Horticulturae (80): 393-395
Effects of some growth regulators on the development and ripening of peach fruits
On peach, Marygold, spraying with 5000 p.p.m. SADH and related compounds at the stage of rapid initial growth (May) reduced shoot length by 4-18% and encouraged earlier and more uniform fruit ripening. The best results were obtained with an application of an SADH-Ethrel mixture sprayed at stone-hardening (July). This resulted in only 6.5% unripe fruit at harvesting, compared with 11% in the control.
