Title: Chemical Fruit Thinning of Apples
Authors: Forshey, Chester
Keywords: chemical apple thinning
thinning fruits chemically
Issue Date: 1986
Publisher: New York State Agricultural Experiment Station
Series/Report no.: New York's Food and Life Sciences Bulletin
Abstract: Most varieties will overset if bloom is heavy and bloom weather is good. Some varieties will consistently overset even if the weather is less than optimum. As a result, most varieties will need some thinning in most years in order to produce fruit of marketable size on a regular, annual basis.
