Dr. Carol Lovatt (UC Riverside, Dept. of Botany and Plant Science) and Elizabeth Fichtner (UC Cooperative Extension Tulare County) continue olive research at Lindcove REC. A foliar application of plant growth regulator treatments in combination with urea was applied to mature olive trees this week to determine the potential value of these products to reduce or eliminate the alternate bearing cycle in olives.
Toan Khuong is seen here applying the foliar spray. Toan is a Staff Research Associate in Dr. Lovatt's lab at UC Riverside.
