Effects of decapitation and benzyladenine on growth and yield of cowpea



Effects of decapitation and benzyladenine on growth and yield of cowpea



Annals of Botany 54(3): 439-444



A study was undertaken to define more clearly the role of the early loss of apical dominance on yield of V. unguiculata Vita-5. Decapitation at the 5th leaf stage resulted in an increase in branching components, yields and harvest indices, while vegetative DM accumulation was reduced. Foliar-applied sprays of BA had no effect on branching unless combined with decapitation, and no significant effects on yield over that of controls were observed.
