Thinning trials with lime sulphur in comparison to other products were carried out for 4 years in an ‘Elstar orchard’ at the OVB Jork in Northern Germany. Beside the yield, the influence on fruit size, colour, russet-ting and return bloom of treated trees were observed. Mechanic thinning was too strong and had other negative effects. Thinning with potato meal and coconut soap had no effect. Organic oil (Telmion) reduced the yield between 0 and 20%. Lime sulphur reduced the yield 0 – 40% in comparison of the concentration and the number of applications. There were great fluctuations from year to year. In conclusion lime sulphur gives the best results, but the variation from year to year is not acceptable for a practical advising in the northern area of Germany.
