Özet

This study was conducted to determine the effects of Cytozyme Crop Extra, Pix and Atonic on the seed yield and yield components of main cropped peanut in a Mediterranean type of environment. Compared with the control, the three growth regulators significantly increased pod yield. Especially application of growth regulators at the peg formation and pod development were more effective on pod yield than single application. The highest pod yield increase (43.4%) was obtained from Cytozyme Crop Extra followed by Pix (31.9%) and Atonic (27.8%).
