Pfeiffer, Barbara and Rueß, Franz (2002) Screening of agents for thinning blossoms of apple trees. In: Boos, Markus (Ed.) 10th International Conference on Cultivation Technique and Phytopathological Problems in Organic Fruit-Growing and Viticulture. Proceedings to the Conference from 4th to 7th Feb. 2002 at Weinsberg/Germany, pp. 106-111.
In May 2001 different plant oils, lime sulfur, starch, Na-bicarbonate and three concentrations of salt were proofed for their suitability for thinning blossoms at the apple variety Pinova. The trees grew in a conventionally treated part of the experimental orchard in Heuchlingen. The experiment had the character of a screening. Side effects like russeting and damages of blossom or leaves were registered too.
