Resumo: Kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa cv. Hayward) was introduced into Northwest Portugal at the early 1970's increasing its importance up to date. The main objective of orchard management is to find out the cultural techniques suitable for the region, in order to obtain good yield and quality fruit. Winter chilling (less than or equal to7.2degreesC) plays a significant role in kiwifruit break dormancy. Insufficient chilling can be countered by chemical agents as hydrogen cyanamid (Dormex). The objective of this research was to quantify the efficiency of hydrogen cyanamide (0%, 4%, and 6%) on bud break dormancy and yield and fruit quality. Experiments were carried out over two years on a mature 'Hayward' kiwifruit orchard. The results showed that 4% Dormex was the most efficient in increasing marketable yield due to increase of flower bud formation and higher level of fruit set. There were no significant differences among treatments in soluble solids content, flesh firmness and dry weight. Titrable acidity showed higher values with increased Dormex concentration.
