Effect of Growth Retanrdants on Vegetative and Reproductive Growth Behaviour of Mango (Mangifera indica L.)
F.M. Tahir , M. Ibrahim and Kamran Hamid

Abstract:
The study was initiated to observe the effect of three growth retardants i.e. paclobutrazol, alar and cycocel on vegetative growth pattern and its impact on reproductive behaviour towards normal or malformed panicles. As a result of growth retardants spray, vegetative growth was reduced and thus intensity of flushing was minimized on treated plants after application. Out of three growth retardants, paclobutrazal was found more effective in which least number of growth flushes were observed. As a result of decreased number of flushes, the production of malformed panicles was also minimized.
