CONTROL OF FLOWERING, FRUIT SET, AND SEED DEVELOPMENT IN APPLE (MALUS DOMESTICA BORKH.) WITH CHEMICAL GROWTH REGULATORS

Max W. Williams
Control of flowering, fruit set and seed development in apple (Malus domestica Borkh.) is necessary to maintain high annual yields of quality fruit. Chemical methods have been developed to prevent alternate year or biennial bearing. These chemical bioregulants affect the endogenous hormone balance by altering biochemical pathways thus shifting the balance between vegetative and reproductive growth in favor of flowering.
