Effect of droplet size and carrier volume on performance of foliage-applied herbicides
Abstract Frequently, spray application of agrochemicals is effective but inefficient. A better understanding of the effects of spray application factors on spray performance may contribute toExpand

Russeting in apple and pear: a plastic periderm replaces a stiff cuticle
In russeting of apple and pear fruit, a stiff cuticle is replaced by a more plastic periderm. Furthermore, the cell layers underlying the cuticle and the periderm represent the load-bearing structureExpand

Transcriptional dynamics of the developing sweet cherry (Prunus avium L.) fruit: sequencing, annotation and expression profiling of exocarp-associated genes
The exocarp, or skin, of fleshy fruit is a specialized tissue that protects the fruit, attracts seed dispersing fruit eaters, and has large economical relevance for fruit quality. Development of theExpand

Deposition, strain, and microcracking of the cuticle in developing 'Riesling' grape berries
The objectives of this study were to quantify deposition, strain, and microcracking of the cuticular membrane (CM) in developing 'Riesling' (Vitis vinifera L.) berries. Mass of the CM, the cutinExpand

Fruit growth, cuticle deposition, water uptake, and fruit cracking in jostaberry, gooseberry, and black currant
Abstract Fruit cracking after rain limits the production of a number of crops, including some Ribes species. To gain a better understanding of the factors involved in cracking, fruit growth,Expand

Identification of putative candidate genes involved in cuticle formation in Prunus avium (sweet cherry) fruit.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The cuticular membrane (CM) of Prunus avium (sweet cherry) and other fleshy fruit is under stress. Previous research indicates that the resultant strain promotes microscopicExpand

Russeting and Microcracking of ‘Golden Delicious’ Apple Fruit Concomitantly Decline Due to Gibberellin A4+7 Application
The effect of four applications of gibberellin A4+7 (GA4+7 (10 mgL -1 at 10-day intervals beginning with petal fall)) on water-induced russeting, formation of microcracks. and on fruit growth andExpand

Mechanical properties of cuticles and their primary determinants
Cuticles envelope primary surfaces of the above-ground portion of plants. They function as barriers to water movement and to gas exchange, and in pathogen defense. To serve as a barrier on growingExpand
