|Crop and variety||Objective of treatment||Application time||Conc. active ingredient (ppm)||Dosage (ml/100 L water)||Additives and surfactants||Notes and spray volume|
|Citrus*: Michal, Clementine, Murcott, Dancy||Thin immature fruit & increase fruit size||Late May to early June, average dia. of immature fruit 8-10 mm||200-300||100-150||Triton-1956-B surfactant, 0.025% + potassium nitrate or Bonus, 4%-5% of spray volume without the surfactant(1)||Spray until fully wet, with about 10 L per mature tree. Only fruit that come in physical contact with spray will be affected.|
|Red and white grapefruit*||Increase fruit size||Late May to early June, average dia. of immature fruit 15-20 mm||300||150|
|Valencia*||Increase fruit size & reduce creasing||Early June, average dia. of immature fruit |
|300||150||In high-yield groves|
|Tabouri*||Increase fruit size||Late May, average dia. of immature fruit |
|200-300||100-150||Spray until fully wet, with about 10 L per mature tree. Only fruit that come in physical contact with spray will be affected.|
|Minneola*||Thin immature fruit & increase fruit size||Average dia. of immature fruit |
|Nova*||Reduce creasing and cracking of fruit||Average dia. of immature fruit |
|Olive**||Thin blossoms and immature fruit||About 10 days after full blossoming||100 (increase product quantity by 10% for every day of delay)||50||Triton X-100 surfactant, 0.025%||Wet fully until dripping|
|Apple: Jonathan and Starking-Delicious varieties||Prevent premature dropping||In Jonathan variety: starting 3 weeks before harvest. In other varieties: starting 10 days before harvest, before natural dropping increases||40-60||20-30||Use a blow sprayer to apply 250 L/dunam until dripping. In groves with intense growth – use lower dosage to avoid drooping leaves. The effect is immediate and lasts for two weeks after application.|
|Apple: Golden variety***||Thin & increase fruit size||Minimum dia. of immature fruit |
12 mm, peak of blossoming + 21 days (estimated)
|15-20||7.5-10||250 L/dunam until dripping. Spray only upper two thirds of tree.|
|Dates: Hayani and Barhi varieties||Improve fruit quality & postpone ripening||1st spraying when color changes. 2nd spraying 7-10 days after 1st application (2).||25||12.5||Spray until dripping, about 0.5 L per bunch|
*Citrus – Spraying may sometimes lead to diminished yields and results may not be consistent if product is used every year. Do not spray trees with small quantities of fruit or trees under any stress conditions. Do not spray when temperature is high and humidity is low or when extreme hot and dry weather is expected within 24 hours of application.
**Olives – Apply only in years with plentiful blossoming.
***Apple – When thinning apples, spray only on healthy and vital trees. Avoid spraying after hot and dry weather. Thinning results are also affected by other uncontrollable factors. Consult with an agricultural expert before thinning.
(1) Occasionally causes thinning of fruit.
(2) When at least one third of dates in early bunches have changed color. Not recommended for use on young groves. Spray groves 8 years old and older.
