Effects of annual foliar applications of paclobutrazol for 9 years on the growth, yield, and fruit quality of satsuma mandarin trees



Effects of annual foliar applications of paclobutrazol for 9 years on the growth, yield, and fruit quality of satsuma mandarin trees



Bulletin of the Fruit Tree Research Station 0(26): 61-69



Gibberellin synthesis inhibitor, paclobutrazol has been applied to 18-year-old (1985) satsuma mandarin trees (cv. Silver Hill) at a concentration of 500 ppm for 9 years since 1985 continuously. Canopy volume of untreated trees has increased by 202.4%, while that of the paclobutrazol-treated trees has increased by 164.0% for 8 years since 1985. Fruit yield per tree treated with paclobutrazol has been lower than that of untreated trees for 8 years since 1986. No significant difference was observed in fruit yield per canopy volume and fruit quality between paclobutrazol-treated and untreated trees. Leaf number per canopy volume of trees treated with paclobutrazol was smaller than that of the untreated trees. This phenomenon was attributed to the fact that the number of old leaves per canopy volume of the paclobutrazol treated trees was smaller than that of untreated trees, although the number of new leaves pet canopy volume was not different.
