Paclobutrazol [(2RS,3RS)-1-(4-chlorophenyl)-4,4-dimethyl-2-(1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)pentan3-ol], formulated as GFU 265, applied at 100, 250, and 500 mg plant−1 to the soil of container-grown sweet orange [Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck cv. Valencia], suppressed plant weight, stem height, leaf size, and total leaf area. At the 500-mg dosage, total plant dry weight was reduced by 61%, stem height by 74%, and both leaf biomass and area by 80%, as compared to control plants. All paclobutrazol dosages… CONTINUE READING
