  • The aim of this study was to determine the effects of the synthetic auxin 3,5,6-trichloro-2-pirydiloxyacetic acid (3,5,6-TPA) on photosynthetic activity, photosynthate transport to the fruit, and fruitlet abscission to further explain the physiological basis of auxin-mediated citrus fruit thinning. Applying 15 mg l−1 3,5,6-TPA to trees during the fruit cell division stage significantly increased fruitlet abscission of Clementine mandarin. On treated trees, abnormal foliar development and… CONTINUE READING
