A reduced heat shock period for `Sharwil' avocado (Persea americana Mill.) before quarantine cold treatment is described. The shortened heat pretreatment period of 8 to 12 hours, rather than the originally recommended 18 hours at 38C, is effective in reducing chilling injury symptoms when the pulp is at ≤2.2C during 16 days of storage. The reduced durations and the range of pretreatment hours affords packinghouses greater efficiency and more flexibility and will reduce handling costs relative to the longer exposure.

Field experiments were conducted in the Dominican Republic to determine the effect of gibberellic acid treatments on the elongation of the leading and lateral branches of `Hall' and `Semil-34' avocado (Persea americana) plants. The plant growth regulator was applied as a foliar spray to the leading branch at rates 0, 20, 40, 60, and 80 ppm. `Hall' avocado was not responsive to gibberellic acid treatment, whereas `Semil-34' was responsive, with higher rates inducing a more pronounced stem elongation. As an undesirable side effect, gibberellic acid treatment also stimulated the elongation of lateral branches in `Semil-34', making it unsuitable to enhance apical dominance on the leading branch.
