A study with growth regulators for chemical stopping of brussels sprouts

A study with growth regulators for chemical stopping of brussels sprouts

Reducing apical dominance by chemical means increased crop yield by up to 53% while removal of the apical bud by hand increased the yield by 67%. The greatest effect was achieved when removal of apical dominance coincided with attainment of maximum plant height. PP 413 and TIBA showed promise for stopping brussels sprouts and their effects were enhanced by the use of the surfactants S600 or a non-ionic wetter which minimized run-off from the leaves.

The response of 2 Brussels sprouts cvs to chemical stopping with PP 528, a phenyl tetrazole growth regulator, was tested. Early application, when the basal sprouts were 1 cm in diameter for cv. Citadel and 1.5 cm for cv. Sigmund, resulted in low y...

Changes in chemical composition of Brussels sprouts during the growing period. Sprouts, cv. Acropolis F1, were sampled for analysis at 2- to 3-week intervals from Sep. to Nov. During this period, the citric acid content decreased sharply and the malic acid content decreased more gradually. The total protein content was relat...

This calls for uniform buttons with a diameter not exceeding 27 mm. Early stopping invariably increased y...
