Hormone and histological differences between normal and maleic hydrazide treated onions stored over winter






Acta Horticulturae (38): 95-125

Hormone and histological differences between normal and maleic hydrazide treated onions stored over winter

Studies were made of the development of onion shoot apices and of the activities of various endogenous growth substances in normal and MH-treated bulbs after storage at low temperatures for up to 9 months. During the rest period there was no visible cellular activity; cytokinin, gibberellin and auxin activity was low, especially in MH-treated bulbs, and inhibitor activity was high.
