Effect of fall application of GA and SADH on bloom delay and productivity of apples

Effect of fall application of GA and SADH on bloom delay and productivity of apples

Indian Journal of Horticulture 46(4): 430-433

Mild winters and spring frosts in Himachal Pradesh frequently result in poor fruit set and low yields. To delay flowering, GA at 25-75 p.p.m. or SADH at 2500-7500 p.p.m. were applied in the autumn to 15- to 20-year-old Red Delicious trees growing at a site 2215 m a.s.l. SADH at 5000 and 7500 p.p.m. delayed flowering by 6 days whereas GA delayed it by only 3 days.
