Photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic pigments in croton varieties

, : Photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic pigments in croton varieties. Journal of the Andaman Science Association 4(1): 77-78

Variations in Codiaeum variegatum leaf colour are due to variations in the proportions of photosynthetic (chlorophylls-a and -b and carotenoids) and non-photosynthetic (anthocyanins) pigments. A study was conducted to determine the extent of variability in the pigment composition in leaves of C. variegatum cultivars. The data are tabulatd. The highest chlorophyll-a and -b contents were observed in Muddana followed by Bomnu and Valmiki, with the lowest in IIHR-126.

Giza 155 were sprayed with 0, 0.1, 0.5 or 1.0% atrazine at the 2-leaf stage and examined at 4, 8 and 14 days after treatment. Atrazine decreased shoot and root DM yields at all sampling dates and tended to increase the shoot...
