Abstract

Sprays of maleic hydrazide, potassium salt of maleic hydrazide, and NIA 10637, (growth inhibitors) effectively inhibited top regrowth of top-pruned lemon trees in Ventura County tests. These compounds have not been registered for use on citrus, however, and cannot be recommended for use at this time.
