Growth of apricot fruits as influenced by 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxy acetic acid application



Growth of apricot fruits as influenced by 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxy acetic acid application



Proceedings American Society Hort Science 59: 218-224



Spray applications of 2,4,5-T at concns. ranging from 25 to 1000 ppm. markedly increased the growth rate of apricots which, as a consequence, matured a max. of 18 days early and were a max. of 10.5% larger in diam. than unsprayed fruits. Concns. of 25 and 50 ppm. applied at the beginning of pit hardening were effective in altering fruit growth rate while concns. of 100 and 200 ppm. applied 25 days later were completely ineffective. The increase in fruit size was the result of a stimulation in growth of the flesh; pits in sprayed and unsprayed fruits were of the same size.
