Ethephon is an ethylene-releasing plant growth regulator that induces abscission of dwarf mistletoe (Arceuthobium americanum) aerial shoots on lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) when applied from the ground. However, ethephon was not effective when applied by helicopter in two Colorado tests, because it did not come into enough direct contact with dwarf mistletoe shoots to induce abscission. West. J. Appl. For. 4(1):27-28, January 1989.
