The effect of plant density on the growth, development and yield of pineapple (Ananas comosus (L) Merr. cv. Smooth Cayenne) in Ghana

, : The effect of plant density on the growth, development and yield of pineapple (Ananas comosus (L) Merr. cv. Smooth Cayenne) in Ghana. Acta Horticulturae (53): 349-354

An increase of plant density from 12 100 to 363 000 plants/ha reduced leaf number, augmented plant height, reduced lodging and decreased the number of suckers/plant. Flowering and fruit ripening occurred earlier and total fruit yield rose but fruit size diminished with increasing plant density.

Pineapple slips were classified (A to D) according to size (from 94 to 327 g), and A slips only were either not pruned or 15, 20 or 25 cm of foliage was removed from the tip. All slips were planted in an inclined or vertical position. Vegetative d...

Various modifications of Murashige and Skoog's medium were evaluated for the in vitro culture of pineapple buds. Bud growth was best on a medium containing 0.25 mg BA/litre + 0.2 mg NAA/litre. No rooting was observed on this medium.

Caging of plants did not have any significant effect of fasciation, demonstrating that insects do not play...
