Foliar Calcium Sprays for Apples Calcium (Ca) is an important nutrient ele-ment, which can affect apple quality after har-vest.

Effects of Thinning Sprays on Fruit Size and Yield. Influence of Chemical Thinning on Alternate Bearing. Selection of a Thinning Program.
Methods of Application. Increased Return Bloom by Combinations of Thinning Chemicals and Growth Regulators. Response of Spur‐Type Trees to Chemical Thinners. Influence of Chemical Thinning Agents on Seed Cited by: Spray the apple tree with horticultural oil while dormant, then again when the leaves are 1/2 inch and again right before the tree blooms, when the small buds begin to turn pink.
Apple maggot control begins before the tree produces foliage in the spring with a lime-sulfur spray. To control the many other insects that attack apple trees, use an.
