The influence of the growth retardant Alar on fruit development, root growth and shoot structure of apple trees



The influence of the growth retardant Alar on fruit development, root growth and shoot structure of apple trees



Schweiz. landw. Forsch 6: 148-69. bibl. 7



Studies were made of the effects of Alar on Golden Delicious and Maigold apple trees and the apple rootstock M.26. Fruits of treated trees were somewhat firmer than the controls. Alar increased the specific weight of the fruit and delayed ripening of Golden Delicious. In storage fruits from treated trees showed a reduced sugar content and colouring was delayed. Alar applications caused no off-flavour and the proportions of flavour constituents were unchanged.
