Aminoethoxyvinylglycine (AVG) is a plant regulator, which in apples and pears reduces drops, may enhance fruit quality and firmness, and may, in apples, reduce the incidence of the physiological disorders water core and scald when applied in accordance with label directions. For certain ornamentals (miniature carnations, hibiscus, and rooted geranium cuttings and seedlings), the incidence of shipping-related problems such as flower senescence and flower bud abscission may be reduced.
