  • Abstract. The hormonal signals controlling fruitlet abscission induced by sugar shortage in citrus were identified in Satsuma mandarin, Citrus unshiu (Mak.) Marc, cv. Clausellina and cv. Okitsu. Sugar supply, hormonal responses and fruitlet abscission were manipulated through full, partial or selective leaf removals at anthesis and thereafter. In developing fruitlets, defoliations reduced soluble sugars (up to 98%), but did not induce nitrogen and water deficiencies. Defoliation-induced… CONTINUE READING
