The Influence of D
Abstract: In order to study of the effect of Cycocel (CCC) dosages and pollination methods on alfalfa seed production an experiment was conducted using split plot design based on randomized complete block with three replications in Borujerd agricultural research station, Iran for two years (2011-12). In split plot designthree artificial pollination systems (control, pulling rope over flowers in 70% and 100% pollination stages) were used as main plots and the four hormone dosages (0, 1.6, 3.2 and 6.4 liter per hectare) as sub plots. The results of variance analysis indicated that the influence of artificial pollination and mutual influence of the hormone in artificial pollination on traits such as, bush highness, stem diameter, and internodes distance have been significant. The effect of Cycocel hormone other traits: bush highness, stem diameter, and internodes distance at 5% level has become significant.
