Based on the study of favourable factors to the apricot tree culture, Dobrogea was outlined as an area which is highlyfavourable to the cultivation of this species. The apricot tree is a species which reacts very well to the applying ofpruning during the vegetative stage, these cuts being a technological measure which has as goal the diminishing of therisk of losing the yield in the years when late frosts occur in spring. The research carried out at R.S.F.G. Constanţa onthree apricot tree cultivars, 'Augustin’, 'Orizont’ and 'Elmar’, had the purpose of establishing the best time forperforming summer pruning by carrying out in a differentiated manner, according to the type of fructification. Thethree cultivars reacted well to the variant which included summer pruning carried out in the middle of the month ofJune, which recommends this moment as being the best for this type of cuts. The 'Orizont’ and 'Elmar’ cultivarsrespond well to summer pruning carried out by shortening the annual growths by 20 cm in order to generate theforming of anticipated shoots. The fruit buds formed on these shoots are later differentiated and enter in the vegetativestage 5-6 days later, which ensures that the danger of hoarfrosts and late frosts is overcome.
