Cytolin and nose cracking


Measham, PF and Cover, IP and Rix, KD and Bound, SA, Cytolin and nose cracking, Victorian Cherry Association Conference 2015, 14-15 May 2015, Healesville, Australia (2015) [Conference Extract]


Observations in orchards around Australia highlighted the prevalence of scar formation in regions that experience cooler spring weather. Spring temperature is known to significantly impact on a number of fruit developmental stages; flowering biology, pollination, fruit set and yield. The rate of early fruit development could also impact on the formation of an intact cuticle, and complete shedding of floral tissue. Later shedding of floral parts, such as the style at the apical-end of the fruit could contribute to scar development. This study provides some preliminary investigations of promoting faster development of fruit early in the season with the use of the plant growth regulator Cytolin.
