Augmentation of Dry Matter Production, Photosynthetic Enzymes, Yield Attributes and Quality Parameters of Sunflower through Seed Priming Effect of Gibberellic Acid—A Multifaceted Hormone

Nikhat Jafri, Mohammad Mazid
The aim of this experiment is to search best concentration of GA and appropriate duration (soaking hour) as well as to find out best interaction between best concentration and best soaking duration. Soaking the seeds with 10-5 M GA for 8 h is best for growth and development of sunflower cv. PAC 3776. Surface sterilized seeds sunflowers (Helianthus annus L.) were soaked in 0, 10-7, 10-5 and 10-3 M aqueo...
