Parthenocarpy of cucumber induced by triiodobenzoic acid

, : Parthenocarpy of cucumber induced by triiodobenzoic acid. HortScience 7(3): 285-286

Under conditions of minimal pollination, yield per plant but not average fruit weight were increased by field treatment of a gynecious variety with 50 or 100 p.p.m. triiodobenzoic acid (TIBA). In greenhouse experiments, the parthenocarpic production of fruit was increased with increasing concentrations of TIBA from 0.1 p.p.m. to 50 or 100 p.p.m.
