Effect of flower thinning on strawberry fruit weight and its relationship to achene number


Acta Horticulturae ( 348): 351-356
Effect of flower thinning on strawberry fruit weight and its relationship to achene number
Plants of 6 cultivars were reduced to one truss which was then subjected to the following treatments: (1) control, (2) primary bud removed, (3) secondary buds removed and (4) primary and secondary buds removed. The removal of primary or secondary flowers increased the average fruit weight/plant for all cultivars. However, the removal of both primary and secondary flowers did not increase average fruit weight/plant.
