Chlorflurenol: Its effect on photomorphogenesis in potato sprout growth

  • A. N. Purohit
Brief Communication


Two typical dark-responses namely the excessive elongation of sprouts and the formation of sprout hook, are adversely affected by chloroflurenol. It also affects the polarity of sprouts and the formation of roots on tubers, the effect varying with the concentration and the light condition. The significance of these effects of chloroflurenol used in potato production has been discussed.
