Fruits were analyzed for skin color, flesh firmness and texture attributes, iodide-starch index, titratable acidity (TA), and total soluble solids (TSS) at 136 (harvest 2015/16) and 132 (harvest 2016/17) DAFB, as well as total phenolic compounds (TPC), total antioxidant activity (TAA), total anthocyanins and hydrogen peroxide ([H.sub.2][O.sub.2]).
However, compared to both control and NAA + 28-HCS treatments, higher iodine-starch index was observed for fruits treated with NAA every 21 days and harvested at 132 DAFB (Table 1).
In Japanese plums (Prunus salicina), some authors also verified increase in fruit size by the application of Ethephon 30 DAFB
(PAVANELLO; AYUB, 2012); (PAVANELLO; AYUB, 2014).
In each case, f(t) represents the fruit diameter measurement in mm and t the time in DAFB. The constant a is related to the final diameter and the constants b, c, d and e are associated with growth rates.
(2004), which yielded a weight of 0% at day 60 of DAFB (Figure 2 in CasierraPosada et al.
Dover based Tidewater will reportedly provide DAFB with potable water service under a 50-year agreement.
Subject to Delaware Public Service Commission regulatory approval, Tidewater plans to integrate the DAFB water system into its regulated utility operations.
A different clean-up supplier won both the competition and the contract with DAFB.
In October 1998, OEI submitted a claim for arranging its "contract" with DAFB, including costs of meetings, site visits, proposal preparation, blocking out aircraft time and the formation of Ortiz Enterprises, Inc.
At full bloom, all flower clusters per tree were counted and after the last natural fruit drop period occurred (~40 DAFB
) the number of fruit per tree was recorded to calculated fruit set.
Tidewater will provide the services to Dover Air Force Base (DAFB
) while it is upgrading and enhancing its water supply system.
The manual thinning was performed by a person, at 50 DAFB
, leaving 10 to 15 cm from the fruit, being determined the necessary time for carrying out the practice.
