Effect of foliar spraying with Alar on the endogenous growth regulating substances of watermelon fruits


Effect of foliar spraying with Alar on the endogenous growth regulating substances of watermelon fruits



Annals of Agricultural Science Cairo 35(1): 15-29



One-month-old watermelon plants grown in Salhia district, Sharkiya, were given foliar sprays of Alar at 20 or 1000 p.p.m., with distilled water applied as a control. Fruit samples were taken from 7- to 11-week-old plants at weekly intervals. Plant growth substances were extracted and bioassays performed using Hordeum vulgaris Giza 119 for auxins, Andropogon sorghum Giza 142 for gibberellins and cucumber Beith Alpha for cytokinins.
