α-NAA becomes effective within 3-4 days of application
and prevents drop for three or four weeks. Separate sprays should
be applied to early and late maturing varieties. Aerial applications
of α-NAA should not be made under weather conditions favoring
a minimal drift to achieve a uniform distribution of product.
Dilution for Spraying with Ground Equipment
Apples - Mix at the rate of 1.2 fl. oz. per 100 gallons
of water (3 fl. oz. per 250 gallons) to prepare 20 ppm spray solution
Pears - Mix at the rate of 0.6 fl. oz. per 100 gallons of
water (1½ fl. oz. per 250 gallons) to prepare 10 ppm spray
Thoroughly cover trees with appropriate spray, using up to 465
gallons per acre on apples of the 20 ppm spray solution which provides
a α-NAA equivalent of 35 grams per acre. Use up to 670
gallons of 10 ppm spray per acre for pears which provides 25 grams
α-NAA per acre.
