In a field experiment, plants of Barito were sprayed with 75, 100 or 125 p.p.m. GA3, 50, 100 or 200 p.p.m. NAA, or 200, 450 or 700 p.p.m. Alar at full bloom and again 30 days later. Application of the growth regulators had no significant effect on LAI or NAR 110 days after treatment (DAT), CGR 70 DAT, or final yield compared with untreated controls. However, the best yield (3.67 t/ha) was obtained with application of 450 p.p.m.
