Vegetative Propagation from the Broccoli Curd after Suppression of Flowering

Abstract

IN the course of an inspection of early varieties of autumn cauliflower and broccoli grown for seed production in Cyprus during 1946, it was observed in certain crops that after the inflorescence had formed very few flower buds developed. Suppression of flower development also occurred in a seed crop in the Scilly Isles later that year, and in a glasshouse in Devon, where selected broccoli plants were being seeded.
