The effect of staking on the growth and yield of the winged bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus (L.) DC.)



The effect of staking on the growth and yield of the winged bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus (L.) DC.)



Acta Horticultureae (53): 159-163



Stakes of lengths up to 270 cm were used to support vines of winged beans (P. tetragonolobus). Stakes of 210-240 cm progressively increased vegetative matter, seed and tuber yields. At greater lengths seed yield increased slightly, vegetative matter was not affected, but the stimulus for tuber initiation and development was not attained until the vines reached the top of supports and started to descend.
