Foliar application of water spray and thiourea solution of 300 and 600 mg/L was applied at tillering
, jointing and booting stage.
At maximum tillering
stage IR-28 achieved higher number of tillers than Koshihikari but this number decreased rapidly as compared to Koshihikari which retained significantly higher number at maturity.
The link between site occupation and number of live leaves is essential to understanding the tillering
process, as each leaf blade has an axillary shoot that can originate a new tiller and site occupation measured the rate of leaf shoots that can evolve into tillers.
1992) also found late planting to result in poor tillering
, reduces the tillering
period and more chances of winter injury Number of fertile tillers m-2: Data regarding number of fertile tiller m-2 are presented in Table 3 showed that the November sown wheat significantly increased number of tillers m-2 as compared to late sowing.
1] was split-applied as urea at basal, tillering
, panicle initiation and flowering growth stages compared with the some N rate equally split between basal, tillering
, and panicle initiation application .
So, genotypes showed distinct tillering
potential due to emergence variations of secondary tillers (Table 1).
Irrigation applied at tillering
, booting, anthesis, milking and dough stages (I4 ) markedly enhanced the CGR over all other treatments except 60, 105 DAS where it is statistically at a par with ( I3).
At Laramie, where tillering
was limited environmentally and aphid populations were high, this was the only significant correlation (Table 7).
2012), positively influencing tillering
Abbreviations: TRTT, tillering
rate relative to tillerable tiller; RSPAD, relative SPAD of the 3rd and 4th leaf (from the apex) of the main stem
Key words: Time of sowing, wheat varieties, germination, tillering
and grain yield.
Genotype Iqbal-2000 and Aqab-2000 had highest TDM (21670; 21220 kg ha-1) respectively while I4 (Irrigation at tillering
+ booting + anthesis + milking) had the highest TDM 22240 kg ha-1 verses I0 (no irrigation) 18070 kg ha-1.
There are some reports about damage borers (Scirpophaga excerptalis  and Chilo infuscatellus Snellen  at tillering
stage on sugarcane.
One possible explanation could be that a 15-cm cutting height promoted tillering
for the switchgrass single-tiller types.
Consequently, studies on the tillering
pattern of the forage plant after deferment periods and periods of utilization of the deferred pastures are of paramount importance since tillering
is the main source of perennation of forage grasses.
