Pg. 19-22 Evaluating Maxim® for the increase in fruit size and retention in litchi: Second season

Maxim®, a synthetic auxin, was evaluated on litchis for the increase of fruit size. After the first year in 2005/06 the trials were extended to include different application times. 

Maxim® was applied at the 2, 3 and 4 g fruitlet stage at three different concentrations and the effect on yield, fruit drop and fruit size was determined. All treatments increased yield and fruit size. Economical studies revealed again that the application of Maxim® can benefit producers to a great extent.
