Time of application of calcium sprays to increase fruit calcium and reduce fruit pitting of apples malus domestica cultivar golden delicious sprayed with triiodobenzoic acid



Time of application of calcium sprays to increase fruit calcium and reduce fruit pitting of apples malus domestica cultivar golden delicious sprayed with triiodobenzoic acid



Hortscience 21(1): 95-96



Calcium concentration of 'Golden Delicious' (Malus .times. domestica Borkh.) apples was reduced with a single, early application of 50 ppm TIBA. Early, midseason, and late sequences of 3 sprays of CaCl2 (3.6 g/l) were applied to evaluate timing effectiveness for increasing fruit Ca concentration and decreasing fruit pitting. Mid-June, July, and August sprays increased fruit Ca concentration less than later sprays, but more effectively reduced fruit pitting.
