Ethephon application

Ethephon is a plant growth regulator that acts by releasing ethylene in the plant issues soon after its application. Ethylene, a naturally occurring plant hormone, induces and regulates certain plant processes, such as ripening, coloring and senescence. Ethephon is used in walnuts for stimulating pericarp opening and detachment, thus obtaining an easier, early and concentrated harvest.
