Yields and Estimated Economic Returns from Using Ethephon to Suppress Flowering in Annually Harvested Sugarcane

Abstract

When sugarcane flowers, vegetative growth is terminated and this can lead to yield losses. Applied ethephon disrupts the flowering process, thereby potentially mitigating the effects of flowering. The results from using ethephon to suppress flowering in several experiments are reported. They show that ethephon could have large negative effects on yields of… (More)
