Table 1 Effects of 6-benzyladenine (BA) treatment on flowering and fruiting in J. curcas

From: Analysis of the transcriptional responses in inflorescence buds of Jatropha curcasexposed to cytokinin treatment

Concentration of BA (mM) Number of flowers/inflorescence Number of females/inflorescence Ratio of female to male Number of fruits/infructescence Fruiting rate (%) Number of seeds/infructescence Weight of 100 seeds (g) Yield/infructescence (g) Oil content (%)
