Crabapple trees are commonly grown as ornamental trees. They produce fruit that drop to the ground and create an obstructive mess. In order to prevent fruiting, chlorflurenol is proposed to control fruiting on crab apple trees. Maintain® CF 125 is a formulation of chlorflurenol that is recommended for use as a foliar spray at the time of flower bloom. Crabapple production is significantly reduced at an application rate of 2 pts/100gal. This approach allows the users to enjoy the benefits of the tree while eliminating the nuisance fruit.
