Acceleration of tomato ripening by ethephon


, : Acceleration of tomato ripening by ethephon. Horticultural Research 12(3): 201-203

In a large-scale experiment ethephon at 250 or 500 p.p.m. was sprayed onto green fruit of Eurocross BB to run-off, and fruits were harvested immediately before and 3, 7, 10 and 14 days after treatment. Ethephon at 500 p.p.m. increased the yield of ripe fruit at each harvest, and the total yield by 56%; the 250 p.p.m. concentration increased the yield at each harvest except the first, and the total yield by 43%.
