Abstract

Dipping asparagus crowns (Asparagus officinalis L.) in 300 ppm dikegulac (Atrinal) solution significantly reduced the time of emergence and the height of asparagus shoots without affecting their fresh and dry weights. The number of shoots at complete emergence was not affected by the dikegulac treatment, but thereafter a significant increase occurred. Of the concentrations tested (0, 200, 300, and 400 ppm), 300 ppm was the most effective. After the top was cut off, the dikegulac treatment did not affect the time of emergence of the second shoots, but it did continue to increase their number. Chemical name used: 2,3:4,6-bis-O-(1-methylethylidene)-α-L-xylo-2-hexulofuranosonic acid (dikegulac).
