determine the effect of selected microelements (B, Fe, Zn, and Cu) on the quality of bush tea. The study was intended to provide the baseline for the foliarspray application of micronutrients to enhance quality of bush tea. Materials and Methods
applications. Male flowers induced on genetically female plants will produce pollen containing only X gametes, which when crossed with eggs from female plants result in all-female seed ( Mohan Ram and Sett, 1982 ). Foliarsprays of STS have been effective at
flower prematurely (i.e., while still in the liner tray) during greenhouse production, requiring hand labor to remove inflorescences. Ethephon is a plant growth regulator (PGR) that is commonly applied as a foliarspray ( Whipker et al., 2011b ). When
, it is unclear how the covering of trees with NPN before, during, and after flowering for an extended period, thereby affecting tree growth and fruit development, impacts the deposition of foliarsprays that are applied and fruit production. This study
western Oregon use foliarsprays of B (often mixed with fungicides) early in the season or postharvest to ensure that vines are not limited by this nutrient. Foliarsprays of macronutrients [nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K) calcium (Ca
plant growth for agricultural or horticultural systems. The purpose of these studies was to conduct short-term experiments with various plants to evaluate the merits of using glycerol as drenches or foliarsprays within the relatively uniform environment
timing of application affect the efficacy of Ca on several fruit quality attributes ( Sotiropoulos et al., 2010 ).
The scope of the present research was to investigate the effect of various Ca-containing commercial products applied as foliarsprays on
different times of application are summarized in Table 1 . In addition to the foliarspray applications, individual ‘Eureka’ lemon fruit and fruit plus leaves were dipped on 4 May 2005 in 200 and 400 mg·L −1 ProCa solutions because the bulk of the lemon
promoted the growth of greenhouse-grown plants when applied as aqueous foliarsprays. Our principal objective in the present study was to determine the growth effects of various 3-MPAN concentrations on several different plant species grown in vivo in the
Flurprimidol was applied as a foliar spray (12.5, 25.0, 37.5, 50.0, or 62.5 mg·L-1) or as a substrate drench (0.015, 0.03, 0.06, 0.12, or 0.24 mg/pot a.i.) to determine its efficacy on `Blue Champion' exacum (Exacum affine). Flurprimidol substrate drenches were more consistent in controlling plant growth than foliar sprays. Substrate drenches of 0.03 mg/pot a.i. or foliar sprays ≥50 mg·L-1 resulted in smaller plant heights and diameters than the untreated control. With the use of flurprimidol, exacum growers have another plant growth regulator (PGR) available to control excessive growth.
