The fruit removal force (FRF) of olive fruits decreased after treatment with the ethylene-releasing agents CGA 13'586 and ethephon. The former has a higher pH in solution and releases ethylene quickly and in very large amounts, while the latter has a much lower pH and releases ethylene slowly and in much smaller concentrations. The influence of each of the agents on the FRF followed a parallel pattern to its ethylene evolution; CGA 13'586 caused a fast and continuous decrease in the FRF, while ethephon caused a small reduction, a period of steady state and a second reduction in the FRF. At the end of the second stage the FRF was similar for both chemicals. A possible mode of action for the two chemicals is suggested. © 1976.
