Effects of CCC on the Growth od Wheat Plants and their Untreated Progeny1

  1. U. G. Bokhari and
  2. V. B. Youngner2



The effects of a series of CCC concentrations and three methods of application on the growth and yield of Ramona 50' spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) were studied under greenhouse conditions. Results show that treatment of CCC as a soil drench was highly effective in reducing stem height, increasing the number of tillers per plant, and increasing yield. Foliar spray and seed soaking methods were less effective than soil drenching. Yield increase was attributed to more head-producing tillers and to greater weight per grain. Untreated progeny of treated plants had more tillers and were shorter in height than the progeny of untreated plants, perhaps the result of CCC accumulation in the caryopses of treated plants.
