Physiological Parameters of Latex from Controlled Upward Tapping of Hevea Brasiliensis Stimulated With Ethephon
Nguyen, Anh Nghia (1997) Physiological Parameters of Latex from Controlled Upward Tapping of Hevea Brasiliensis Stimulated With Ethephon. Masters thesis, Universiti Putra Malaysia.
A study was carried out to evaluate the effect of several ethephon concentrations (5%, 10% and 20%) on yield and some physiological parameters of latex obtained from Controlled Upward Tapping (CUT) of clone RRlM 600. The relationships between yield, physiological parameters and their interactions were investigated. A good response t o stimulation on yield was observed. The yields in stimulated treatments were from 192.5% to 267.7% of control over the time of the study.
