Abstract:
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.
