ETHYLENE INVOLVEMENT IN PLANT ARCHITECTURE, FLOWERING AND POD DEVELOPMENT OF TWO GROUNDNUT (ARCHIS HYPOGAEA L.) VARIETIES RIK 522 AND SG- 84.Gaganpreet Kaur and Parmil Singh
Ethrel (200 mg p.L-1) and cobalt chloride (15 fig mL-') were given as foliar application to groundnut cvs. 522 and and SG-84 at vegetative (25 DAS) and flowering (45 DAS) stages. Number of branches, leaves, flowers and pods plant-1 increased with CoCI, and decreased with ethrel treatment compared to that of control. Number of branches and leaves recorded higher level in SG-84 than in M-522. More number of flowers were recorded in SG-84 during the early phase with higher number of pod set as compared with that of M-522.
