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

, : Effects of some growth regulators on the development and ripening of peach fruits. Acta Horticulturae (80): 393-395

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.

In preliminary trials 30 and 40 p.p.m. concentrations of 2, 4, 5-T injured peach fruits. Subsequent trials, apparently too late to affect the ripening of earlier varieties, showed that 10 and 20 p.p.m. were also injurious to fruits and foliage. Th...
