Impact of foliar application of aminoethoxyvinylglycine on pre-harvest fruit drop and quality in mandarin cv. kinnow (Citrus reticulata L. Blanco)
Keywords:Aminoethoxyvinylglycine (AVG), Color break, Ethylene, Fruit drop, Kinnow, Mature stage
Citrus fruit drop is a serious issue in citrus producing countries of the world as well as in Pakistan.
The pre-harvest foliar application of aminoethoxyvinylglycine (AVG) @ 150, 300 and 600 mg L
-1 were applied at mature and color break stage to evaluate its influence on fruit drop and quality of kinnow.
Exogenous application of AVG (300 and 600 mg L-1 ) at both mature and color break stage significantly reduce fruit
drop in kinnow as well as improve the fruit quality. However, exogenous application of AVG with 300 mg L-1
at color break stage was the most effective in reducing fruit
