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 a factorial experiment. Three applications of KGA regardless of concentration significantly increased the number of tubers and the total length of main stems over 1 and 2 applications. Soluble solids content of tubers significantly decreased with each unit increase in number of applications… 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. Expand
EFFECTS OF GIBBERELLIC ACID ON GROWTH, TUBER FORMATION AND CARBOHYDRATE DISTRIBUTION IN SOLANUM TUBEROSUM
TLDR
Treatment with GA enhanced both shoot and stolon growth and dry weight, but delayed tuber initiation, and there were significant differences in the relative amounts of 14C in the ethanol-soluble and ethanol-insoluble fractions in the two treatments. Expand
The influence of gibberellic acid seed treatment and seed spacing on yield and tuber size of potatoes
TLDR
Three year results indicated that GA treatments had no effect on yields, but significantly reduced mean tuber size by increasing the numbers of stems and tubers by closer seed spacing. Expand
Effect of gibberellic acid on sprouting, growth of internodes, tuber shape and yield in different varieties of potatoes
TLDR
Sprouting was hastened by one week by treatment for 5 min, with gibberellic acid (GA) at a concentration of 25 p.m. in newly dug potatoes ofRoyal Kidney andUp-to-Date andVoran, with increased extention of internodes following treatment with GA. Expand
Modification of growth habit of Majestic potato by growth regulators applied at different times
TLDR
The effect of gibberellic acid, CCC and B 9 was studied on growth of potato plants in pots to demonstrate that crowding leaves by shortening stems did not diminish E, possibly because another over-riding process (bigger sinks) offsets the effect of shading. Expand
Unsprouted potato tubers treated with gibberellic acid (GA3)
TLDR
Tubers (still unsprouted after an eight months' storage period) of the late varietyLibertas with slow growth in youth and few stems were treated with gibberellic acid (GA3) in 1958 and 1959, which resulted in more and longer sprouts and more stems, although the number of stems is usually less than thenumber of sprouts. Expand
The effect of growth regulators on tuberisation of cultured stem pieces ofSolanum Tuberosum
TLDR
The effect of growth regulators on tuberisation of potato stem cuttings has been investigated and it was found that indoleacetic acid and maleic hydrazide promoted tuberisation while gibberellic acid strongly inhibited the formation of tubers. Expand
Sprouting, plant growth, and tuber production as affected by chemical treatment of white potato seed pieces
SummaryA curtailment of the rest period, resulting from treatment with gibberellic acid (GA), of newly dug White Rose, Kennebec, and Russet Burbank potatoes was indicated by a 2-to 3-weekExpand
THE EFFECTS OF GIBBERELLIC ACID AND KINETIN ON THE GROWTH OF MAJESTIC POTATO
TLDR
The effects of spraying potato plants (var. Majestic) with gibberellic acid and kinetin were investigated and there were indications that this would not persist at maturity. Expand
Systemic Induction of Sprouting in White Potatoes by Foliar Applications of Gibberellin.
TLDR
Results of the experiments described herein indicate that gibberellin initiates the sprouting process of the tubers on the plant when sprouting is least likely; they suggest further that gib berell in moves systemically in plants. Expand
