Efficacy of ArmothinReg. as a chemical thinner applied during different flowering stages of 'Sunlite' nectarines

, : Efficacy of ArmothinReg. as a chemical thinner applied during different flowering stages of 'Sunlite' nectarines. Journal of the Southern African Society for Horticultural Sciences 9(1): 8-12

The thinning of blossoms by hand is a standard practice to ensure larger fruit size of Sunlite nectarines in South Africa. Armothin (a fatty amine polymer) was applied in a single spray (3%) at various times during the blossom period starting at first pink bud stage and ending 3 days after full bloom. Six blossom stages were identified. Percentage fruit drop was increased as Armothin was applied later during bloom.
