Author(s): H. SINGH AND S. K. BANYAL
Abstract: The present investigation on the effect of dormancy breaking chemicals, garlic extract and summer pruning on the cropping behavior of low chilling peach was carried out in the experimental farm of Department of Fruit Science. The study was conducted on Glohaven and Royal Paradelux peach cultivars planted at a spacing of 2×2m. In the experiment, dormancy breaking chemicals comprised of 12 treatments including control were applied on 24th December and 1st January. The vegetative parameters, flowering, fruiting parameters and biochemical parameters were observed in all the treated plants and were compared to untreated control. The results of the study indicated that bud break, full bloom, yield, fruit set, retention, length, diameter, weight, TSS, acidity, ascorbic acid and sugar content were found best with treatment dormex @ 3%.
