Effect of concentrations and methods of application of 2,4-dichlorophenoxy acetic acid on yield, fruit quality and seed quality of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.)



Effect of concentrations and methods of application of 2,4-dichlorophenoxy acetic acid on yield, fruit quality and seed quality of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.)



Vegetable Science 16(1): 1-8



In 2-year (spring-summer) trials with Pusa Ruby, 2,4-D at 1.0, 2.5 or 5.0 p.p.m. was used for seed, seedling or plant treatment. The highest early and total yields, the greatest seed weight and number, and the highest percentage germination of the seeds produced following treatment, were obtained by dipping the seeds in 2,4-D at 5 p.p.m. for 24 h before sowing.
