    Abstract: This study is based on the early discovery that DCPTA has important regulation function to prevent mung bean flower and pod abscission, Spraying DCPTA at the initial flowering stage of mung bean has better effect than other commonly used plant growth regulators on reducing abscission of mung bean flowers and pods. It is further proved that it is an... Show More
