Thinning apples and pears in a nordic climate. III. The effect of NAA, ethephon and lime sulfur on fruit set, yield and return bloom of three apple cultivars



Thinning apples and pears in a nordic climate. III. The effect of NAA, ethephon and lime sulfur on fruit set, yield and return bloom of three apple cultivars



Acta Horticulturae ( 463): 517-525



A field trial was conducted at the Ullensvang Research Centre, Norway, with 3 apple cultivars, Summerred, Red Gravenstein and Aroma, grown in an experimental orchard to investigate the effects of NAA, ethephon and lime sulphur on fruit set, yield and return flowering. NAA (10, 20 and 30 mg/litre) and lime sulphur (5%) were applied with or without ethephon (150 mg/litre) at petal fall and full bloom over a period of 3 years (1990-93).
