Preharvest applications of 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) were tested on California ‘Bartlett’ pears at 80 N maturity and at rates of 0, 28, and 56 mgL–1 in 2006 and 0, 50, and 100 mgL–1 in 2007. In 2007, a parallel experiment was conducted to compare 50 mgL–1 1-MCP with 96 g a.i./ha 1-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) used commercially to control or decrease premature fruit drop.

The history of the Kershaw Companies in the Yakima Valley began more than 125 years ago when our family headed west from Philadelphia and one of the eight children in the family, my great, great grandfather Robert Kershaw, decided to settle in the Naches Valley. Originally, Robert Kershaw focused on raising cattle, but the expanded availability of irrigation water following the passage of the Reclamation Act of 1902 encouraged him to move into fruit ranching. We started with pear orchards and added apples shortly thereafter.
