Effect of plant growth regulators on seed yield and seed quality of sponge gourd (Luffa cylendrica Poem.) cv. Pusa Chikani



Effect of plant growth regulators on seed yield and seed quality of sponge gourd (Luffa cylendrica Poem.) cv. Pusa Chikani



Seed Research (New Delhi) 29(1): 43-46



Application of plant growth regulator, Cycocel 750 ppm produced highest seed yield in sponge gourd. This was due to high number of female flowers (32.55/vine), high number of fruits per vine (21.20) and minimum sex ratio (6.54). Cycocel (@ 500 ppm) spray took least number of days (53.26) for maturity of fruits from flowering.
