Abstract

Three year old lemon trees [C. limon (L.) Burm f.] were selectively pruned to form a 3- to 4-scaffold branch structure for limb shaker harvesting. Yield was reduced 16 kg per tree and trunk circumference 10 cm above the bud union was reduced 5.3 cm per tree over a 6-year period. Training was completed with minimal production loss.

Abstract

Application of 1% ethyl ester of napthaleneacetic acid (NAA) in an aqueous or latex formulation to trunk and scaffold branches of pruned lemon trees [C. limon (L.) Burm.] did not affect yield during the season of application or during the year following application. Regrowth of trunk and limb sprouts was controlled for approximately 1 year.
