Abstract

Sprays of 2,4,5-TP and combination sprays of 2,4,5-TP and MH-40 V were found to effectively reduce the preharvest drop of Starking, Winesap and Stayman apples. An application of 2,4,5-TA was effective . V on the Starking and Stayman, but not as effective on the Winesap. None of the hormones gave a significant reduction in drop on the Golden Delicious.
