EFFECTS OF TWO PLANT GROWTH REGULATORS ON THE EARLY GROWTH OF GARLIC {ALLIUM SATIVUM L.) PLANTS

In a replicated container experiment, gibberellic acid 3 (GA3) and the cytokinin, NPhenylmcthyl- lH-purine, 6-amine (PMPA) were evaluated for their influence on early growth and dry matter accumulation in "La Flor" garlic grown at sea level during the summer season (June-August) in the Dominican Republic. Cloves were treated with either regulator at rates up to 200 ppm and evaluated seven weeks after treatment. The main finding was a significant change in the dry weight accumulated in the bulb at high rates of both regulators, associated with a significant reduction in leaf dry weight at the same rates.
