Tomato fruit parthenocarpy and yield increase in response to chlorophenoxyacetic acid


Tomato fruit parthenocarpy and yield increase in response to chlorophenoxyacetic acid



Annals of Tropical Research 29(1): 14-25



An experiment was conducted to evaluate the influence of rate and time of application of chlorophenoxyacetic acid (CPA) on the fruit set, yield and quality of tomato (cv. Improved Pope). The application of CPA enhanced the fruit set, reduced the number of days to fruit maturity and consequently increased the yield and yield components of tomato. The optimum concentration of CPA was 75 pm. It was more effective when applied during anthesis than one week after anthesis.
