INVESTIGATIONS ON USING GROWTH REGULATOR FLORDIMEX WITH THE AIM OF ONCE-OVER HARVEST OF TOMATOES

E. Kowalewski
The effect of the growth regulator Flordimex on simultaneous ripening and the quality of three tomato Cultivars was studied at Experiment Stations for Testing Cultivars. Three variants of tomato fruit harvest were applied:
  • multiple harvest (traditional)
  • triple harvest
  • triple harvest with Flordimex spraying.

In the third variant Flordimex was applied after the second picking of fruits as a foliar and fruit spray (2.51/ha in 6001 of water). The growth regulator induced the simultaneous ripening of fruits. The commercial yield in the third variant was very much the same as at multiple harvest.
