The influence of early pinching with fatty alcohols and methyl esters of fatty acids on brussels sprouts



The influence of early pinching with fatty alcohols and methyl esters of fatty acids on brussels sprouts



Hortscience 11(5): 478-479



The effect of early pinching with 3 commercial formulations containing fatty alcohols or methyl esters of fatty acids applied to brussels sprouts (Brassica oleracea L. Gemmifera group) was studied. Pinching was carried out at 2 stages of plant development. Pinching before the sprouts were visible resulted in low yields of poorer quality, while manually topped plants gave excessive amounts of waste sprouts. At the 2nd treatment date, when the basal sprouts were 0.3 cm in diameter, the same tendency was noted for every treatment, except Emgard 2077, which is a combination of methyl esters of fatty acids. The yield from 'Topscore' plants treated with 12% Emgard 2077 was slightly higher than that of the untopped plants. The amount of larger sprouts (> 30 mm) produced was greater than that obtained from untopped plants.
