SummarySprouting was hastened by one week by treatment for 5 min, with gibberellic acid (GA) at a concentration of 25 p.p.m. in newly dug potatoes ofUp-to-Date andVoran. A similar effect was noted inRoyal Kidney treated at a concentration of 50 p.p.m. Although some sprouting occurred within 7 days in treated tubers, 100% sprouting had not occurred until 21–36 days after treatment.There was increased extention of internodes following treatment with GA at concentrations of 25, 50 and 100 p.p.m… Expand

Figures from this paper

Effects of soil applications of gibberellic acid on the yield and quality of tubers ofSolanum tuberosum L. cv. Bintje
TLDR
Because the development over time of sensitivity to GA was not similar for all yield and quality variables, GA can be used to alter tuber-size distribution without greatly affecting other quality characteristies or yield. Expand
Effect of Growth Regulators and Ethanol on Termination of Dormancy in Potato Tubers
TLDR
The study showed that the standard 2 is the most effective approach for breakage of dormancy at least with long term-dormancy cultivars, and in promoting sprout growth. Expand
Potential Regulatory Role of Gibberellic and Humic Acids in Sprouting of Chlorophytum borivilianum Tubers
TLDR
The result from this study suggests that 15% HA should be used to obtain improved sprouting percentage, homogeneous stand establishment, efficient plant growth and development, and increased yield of safed musli. Expand
The effect of potassium gibberellate on vegetative growth and tuber production ofEslamboli potatoes
SummaryThe effect of foliar sprays of 0, 25, 50 and 75 ppm potassium gibberellate (KGA) and 1, 2 and 3 applications were studied on an economically important summer variety of potato (Eslamboli) in aExpand
Advancing growth vigor of seed potatoes by a haulm application of gibberellic acid and storage temperature regimes
TLDR
The advancing effect of a haulm application of gibberellic acid 6 days before haulm pulling and its interaction with storage temperature regimes on the growth vigor of immaturely harvested seed tubers of three cultivars was investigated. Expand
Sprouting, plant growth, and tuber production as affected by chemical treatment of white potato seed pieces. II. Effect of temperature and time of treatment with gibberellic acid
TLDR
In field studies, treatment of resting seed with concentrations of 5 ppm or less hastened plant emergence and resulted in a larger subsequent crop without deleterious effects on plant growth or tuber characteristics. Expand
Shortening dormancy of seed potatoes by a haulm application of gibberellic acid and storage temperature regimes
TLDR
The effect of a haulm application of gibberellic acid (GA) on the dormancy of seed potatoes harvested immature was investigated and several storage temperature regimes were imposed to examine the interaction between GA and storage temperature. Expand
The effect of breaking dormancy of potato tubers by Rindite or Gibberellic acid on the detection of potato virus A by ‘A6’-test leaves
TLDR
The chance to detect partially virus-infected tubers is greater when Rindite is used combined with a long period of storage than when GA is used for breaking dormancy. Expand
The use of gibberellic acid (GA) and N-dimethylaminosuccinamic acid (B9) in the testing of seed potatoes for virus infection
TLDR
The method consists of dipping excised eyes in gibberellic acid (GA) solution to break of dormancy of potato tuber buds and for regulating the growth of the subsequent plants, particularly for use in inspection for the incidence of virus diseases. Expand
Effect of chemical treatments used for dormancy breaking on the number of stems and tubers of Hungarian potato varieties
TLDR
Rindite and gibberellic-acid have an important role not only in breaking dormancy, but also in increasing the tuber number/plant and this positive effect could be utilized in seed potato production. Expand

The effect of gibberelin compounds on the shape of potato tubers
TLDR
All the potatoes produced on the plants treated with gibberelin compounds showed certain malformations, including elongated, spindled and dumbbell shaped tubers having numerous and shallow eyes with protruding brows, characteristic of those generally associated with spindle tuber disease caused by a virus.
