The French Working Group on apple and pear fruit thinning carried out 6 years trials on Brevis®, a photosynthesis inhibitor.
Time of application and concentration study were performed, testing the chemical thinner efficacy, the induced phytotoxicity as well as other side effects.
The Brevis® response was also evaluated as related to different cultivar.
Finally, the efficacy of the combined application of Brevis® with other chemical thinners was also considered.
