Abstract

THERE is always a dramatic difference between the number of blossoms that form on a f r u i t tree in spring and the number of fruit which ultimately mature.

This is very obvious to the grower in the " o f f " or light crop year when he feels a personal loss with every young fruitlet or near-mature fruit that falls from the tree.
