Abstract

From 40 to 90 percent of the mature lemon fruit on young close-set or trellis-grown trees have been removed mechanically by a grape harvester in 3 years of field trials in Ventura County. Abscission chemicals to loosen the fruit and growth inhibitors to retard the tree foliage proved helpful.
