  1. Stimulation of Bud Production in <em>Eucalyptus globulus</em> by Paclobutrazol Application

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Trunk injection of paclobutrazol (Clipper) significantly increased the bud crop on 7-year-old Eucalyptus globulus (Labill.) seed orchard trees, within one year of application. This is the first reported stimulation of reproduction to occur, with eucalypts, in the season of application...
  2. Effect of paclobutrazol on vegetative growth in citrus nursery trees

    Effect of paclobutrazol on vegetative growth in citrus nursery trees

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Two foliar sprays of paclobutrazol applied at four different concentrations, viz. 50,100, 200 and 500 mg a.i. l−1 on Citrus volkameriana (Ten. & Parq.) under greenhouse conditions, showed that concentrations of 100 mg l−1and above are suitable for reducing undesirable...
  3. Comparative effects of daminozide, dikegulac-sodium, paclobutrazol and uniconazole on the plant height of <em>Petunia hybrida</em>

    Comparative effects of daminozide, dikegulac-sodium, paclobutrazol and uniconazole on the plant height of <em>Petunia hybrida</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Two experiments were carried out on ‘Bonanza’ and ‘Velvet Carpet’ petunia seedlings using four growth regulators (daminozide, dikegulac-sodium, paclobutrazol and uniconazole) at four different concentration levels and three application frequencies. The aim of these experiments was to determine which treatments...
  4. The effect of MCPA and paclobutrazol on flowering, berry set, biomass production, tuber yield and quality of potato

    The effect of MCPA and paclobutrazol on flowering, berry set, biomass production, tuber yield and quality of potato

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The effects of MCPA and paclobutrazol on potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) flowering, berry formation, dry matter production and allocation, tuber yield and quality were investigated under greenhouse and field conditions at the Experimental Farm of the University of Pretoria. Both...
  5. Overhead irrigation increased winter chilling and floral bud production in <em>Eucalyptus nitens</em>

    Overhead irrigation increased winter chilling and floral bud production in <em>Eucalyptus nitens</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Eucalyptus nitens requires a sufficiently cold winter to produce flower buds. In areas in South Africa where E. nitens commercial plantations as well as breeding and production seed orchards are located, winter chilling is often insufficient for floral bud initiation...
