Response of six-month-old seedlings of Theobroma cacao to foliar treatment with spruce seal



Response of six-month-old seedlings of Theobroma cacao to foliar treatment with spruce seal



Turrialba 26(4): 365-370



Spruce Seal is an effective antitranspirant on T.cacao at 0.5-0.2 per cent concentration. The effectiveness of the antitranspirant increases with period of treatment. It also increased the relative water content of the leaves. There is a general reduction in chlorophyll content with increase in the concentration of antitranspirant. The assimilation of 14CO2 is enhanced by 0.5 per cent Spruce Seal while 1 per cent and 2 per cent caused an inhibition.
