The influence of flowering compounds on 'Sugarloaf' pineapple (Ananas comosus (L.) Merr.) in Ghana

, : The influence of flowering compounds on 'Sugarloaf' pineapple (Ananas comosus (L.) Merr.) in Ghana. Acta Horticulturae (49): 157-165

An experiment was conducted to test the effects of flowering compounds applied to 35-, 38-, 42-, and 46-week-old Sugarloaf pineapple plants. The compounds, alpha -NAA, BOH ( beta -hydroxy ethyl hydrazine), CaC2 and ethephon (with water as control), significantly retarded vegetative growth and affected the formation of slips and ground suckers, peduncle and crown size, and lodging.

Nine population densities of Sugarloaf pineapple ranging from 17 000 to 57 000 plants/ha were compared. Increasing plant population increased total fruit yield but decreased individual fruit weight and length, peduncle thickness, and slip number a...

Sugarloaf pineapple crowns and slips were stored for 4, 8, 12 or 16 weeks at 22-28 deg C. Material stored for 20 or 24 weeks was too dry to be planted. Storage retarded vegetative growth, delayed flowering and fruit maturity, and depressed fru...
