EFFECT OF SEED VERNALIZATION AND GA3 ON FLOWER INDUCTION AND SEED YIELD IN SPRING - SOWN CHICORY.

A. LOVATO, M. MONTANARI
The chicory seed crops is normally grown as a blennal and sown in late september in Northern-Italy in order to satisfy its vernalization requirement to bolt. Bolting and seed production hardly occur after early spring-sowing, mainly in late cultivars. The possibility of inducing flowering and producing seed in spring-sown chicory with seed vernalization and GA3 applications was investigated over a two-years field trial.
