The effect of ethephon on onion seedstalk height and seed production characteristics

The effect of ethephon on onion seedstalk height and seed production characteristics

HortScience 10(6): 620

Ethephon at 2500, 5000 or 10 000 p.p.m. applied to onion Excel at 5% emergence reduced stalk height from 94 to 68, 62, and 54 cm, respectively. Lodging at seed harvest was reduced from 53% to 10%. The 2500 or 5000 p.p.m. treatments had no effects on seed yield, but the 10 000 p.p.m. treatment lowered it.
