each plant was broken, and the rubber strands extending between the two halves was visually rated on a scale of 1 to 5 (1 = small amount of rubber; 5 = large amount of rubber). Rubber yield per plant was estimated as root dry weight × rubber rating. For

to widest width (GI = height × width 1 × width 2). Before root ball manipulations, initial shoot and root dry weight were calculated for NRB, RB, and RBS plants. Shoots and roots were separated, dried at 140 °F for 72 h, and weighed. Two weeks after

seedlings may not meet the BCMOFR morphological specifications for root dry weight and shoot diameter. The objectives of this research were to compare the effects of single applications of different durations of SDs on bud development, bud endodormancy, and

Eustoma ‘Umihonoka’. Plant growth (height, node number, leaf area, longest root length, shoot, and root dry weights), relative chlorophyll concentration, and photosynthetic parameters were measured after treatment for 56 d. Total leaf area was determined

-to-root ratios, shoots were severed at the soil line and dried at 65 °C until constant dry weight was obtained. To obtain new root dry weight, one-eighth segments of the soil volume outside of the root ball and extending beyond the longest root in each segment
