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


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