Abstract

Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows: SEVERAL DRIP AND SPRAY irrigation systems have been designed and successfully used to apply precise amounts of water and fertilizer to container-grown nursery plants. The usefulness of these systems for application of smaller amounts of other chemicals had not been tested. In these studies, tests were made of the possibilities for application of a growth retardant, ancymidol (A-Rest), through the irrigation system.
