ADDITIONAL INDEX WORDS. 5-chloro-3-methyl-4-nitro-1H-pyrazole, Citrus sinensis, coronatine, ethephon, fruit detachment force, methyl jasmonate ABSTRACT. 1-MCP is a gaseous ethylene binding inhibitor that controls or delays ethylene-related postharvest problems in a range of horticultural commodities. Our previous work demonstrated that exposure of calamondin to 1-MCP 16 hours before canopy sprays of ethephon greatly reduced unwanted leaf drop while only partially inhibiting the ability of…

1-METHYLCYCLOPROPENE REDUCES FRUITLET LOSS CAUSED BY ETHEPHON FOLIAR SPRAYS

TLDR
Results suggest that ethephon-induced phytotoxicity can be reduced with 1-MCP, but the gaseous nature of 1- MCP is an im- pediment to uniform application, particularly if unwanted defoliation can be reduction.

METHYLCYCLOPROPENE REDUCES FRUITLET LOSS CAUSED BY ETHEPHON FOLIAR SPRAYS

1-Methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) is a gaseous ethylene binding inhibitor used to control or delay ethylene-related postharvest problems in a range of horticultural commodities. To evaluate the potential

Organ Loss and Yield Impacts of ‘Valencia’ Sweet Orange in Response to Fruit Abscission Agents

TLDR
The use of the abscission agent 5-chloro- 3-methyl-4-nitro-1H-pyrazole (CMNP) in combination with mechanical harvesting increases mature sweet orange fruit removal without causing phytotoxicity to leaves and young developing fruit through most of the harvesting season.

1-Methylcyclopropene Applications in Preharvest Systems: Focus on Citrus

TLDR
The potential for preharvest applications of 1-MCP to prevent unwanted defoliation using ethephon to loosen mature citrus fruit is presented and there was no difference in mature fruit loosening by e thephon + 1- MCP treatments.

Mechanical Harvesting Capacity in Sweet Orange Is Increased with an Abscission Agent

TLDR
It is demonstrated that CMNP application increases harvesting capacity of trunk and canopy shakers by reducing time necessary to harvest each tree while maintaining high percent mature fruit removal.

The role of ethylene in abscission of sweet orange promoted by exogenous application of the abscission agent 5-chloro-3-methyl-4-nitro-1H-pyrazole (CMNP)

ABSTRACT Mature ‘Valencia’ fruit were treated with 5-chloro-3-methyl-4-nitro-1H-pyrazole (CMNP), and the ethylene inhibitors aminoethoxy vinyl glycine (AVG) and silver thiosulfate (STS), to assess

1-MCP in Post-harvest: Physiological Mechanisms of Action and Applications

Methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) is an inhibitor of ethylene perception. It binds irreversibly to the ethylene receptors and inhibits down- stream processes that are controlled by ethylene. In the area of

Physiological changes associated with senescence and abscission in mature citrus fruit induced by 5-chloro-3- methyl-4-nitro-1H-pyrazole and ethephon application

This research compares effects of the compound 5-chloro-3-methyl-4-nitro1H-pyrazole (CMNP), a plant growth regulator that selectively promotes abscission in mature citrus fruit (Citrus sinensis), and

BETTER SPRAY COVERAGE CAN IMPROVE EFFICACY OF ABSCISSION SPRAYS FOR MECHANICALLY

The selective fruit abscission compound 5-chloro-3methyl-4-nitro-1 H -pyrazole (CMNP) improves mature fruit removal of mechanically harvested orange trees in Florida. Uniform fruit removal depends on

Effect of 1-methylcyclopropene on ethylene-induced abscission in citrus

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the induction of abscission by ethylene is controlled at mRNA level at the abscissions zone by blocking the accumulation of CsCel al mRNA by 1-MCP.

Chemical Promotion of Fruit Abscission in Cherries and Plums with Special Reference to 2-chloroethylphosphonic Acid1

Impact of 1-methylcyclopropene and methyl jasmonate on apple volatile production.

TLDR
The production of individual alcohols and esters appears to be differentially inhibited by MJ or MCP, and not only production of alcohols but also formation of esters from alcohols.

Coronatine and Abscission in Citrus

TLDR
In compatible host-pathogen interactions, coronatine was associated with virulence and symptom development, and must be seriously considered as an abscission material for citrus.
