Control of broadleaf mistletoe (Phoradendron tomentosum) with dormant season ethephon sprays


Acta Horticulturae (201): 141-144
Control of broadleaf mistletoe (Phoradendron tomentosum) with dormant season ethephon sprays
Application of ethephon to P. tomentosum, infesting deciduous landscape trees, induced abscission of its leaves and branchlets. At the highest concentrations tested (2% a.i.) all the branchlets fell off within 75 days of application. Even after a further 150 days, little regrowth was apparent. Ethephon appeared to have no effect on the host trees.
