A study was carried out during 2005 in the Maule Region of Chile (34.56°S, 71.5°W) to evaluate the effect of the co-application of Promalin® at different bud phenological stages and notching at different distances on lateral branching of three sweet cherry cultivars. Treatments significantly increased total feather length in comparison to the untreated control only in the case of ‘Bing’. Total feather growth in these cases was more than double that of control trees. On ‘Lapins’ treated trees, total number of lateral shoots was in most cases significantly increased. In ‘Stella’ trees, total feather length and total number of lateral shoots were not affected by treatments.
