Foliar 2,4-D Application after Physiological Fruit Drop Reduces Fruit Splitting of Mandarin
Various mandarin (Citrus reticulata) cultivars are prone to fruit splitting, a physiological disorder that entails cracking of the rind, starting from the stylar end of the fruit, with eventual
Girdling increases carbohydrate availability and fruit-set in citrus cultivars irrespective of parthenocarpic ability
It is shown that the effects of girdling are time-dependent, and that yield can be improved in cultivars of different parthenocarpic ability.
Fruit splitting in citrus
The episodic nature of fruit split is a good indication that certain environmental and/or cultural cues initiate the incidence of fruit splitting.
Physiological Studies on Improving Fruit Quality of valencia Orange Fruits
The study conducted on valencia orange trees (Citrus sinensis, L) budded on sour orange rootstock, indicating that, (DKP) at 1% was the best treatment for increasing fruit quality, yield and leaf mineral content followed in a descending order by (MKP at 2% and active bread yeast at 40ppm.
Effect of inter-fruit competition on development of physiological disorder “Aril browning†in pomegranate (Punica granatum L.)
Evidence is provided for the role of interfruit competition on development of the disorder of pomegranate, which results in unequal distribution of nutrients to developing fruits which disturbs the physiology of fruit development leading to biochemical changes which ultimately leads to initiation of aril browning.


Hormonal control of splitting in 'Nova' mandarin fruit
Fruit splitting, a physiological disorder of peel development in citrus, has been studied in terms of peel thickness and puncturing resistance in ‘Nova’ mandarins. Both features are negatively
Effect of girdling date on fruit size of Marsh Seedless grapefruit
It was found that autumn girdle reduced fruit size, spring girdles had little effects, but those done in summer increased fruit size.

Measurements of the stretch modulus of tissues from the pericarp support the hypothesis that changes in the tension existing in thepericarp depend upon conditions in thePericarp and are not related to changes in volume or pressure in the juice vesicles.
