Control of maize lodging with (2-chloroethyl) phosphonic acid (ethephon)



Control of maize lodging with (2-chloroethyl) phosphonic acid (ethephon)



Crop Production 13: 37



The physical factors resulting in lodging and morphological characteristics contributing to lodging resistance are briefly outlined. In field trials, maize hybrid SR52 was grown at 55 000 or 67 000 plants/ha and treated with 0, 0.75 or 1.5 kg ethephon/ha at the 8-, 9- or 10-leaf stages. Application of 0.75 kg ethephon at the 8-leaf stage reduced lodging with little effect on grain yield but a higher rate or later application reduced yields.
