Effect of aqueous extract of Croton bonplandianum Baill. on Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. studied in relation to some macromoleculesAuthor(s): Ajoy Ghosh, Padma Chatterjee
Some biochemical parameters in relation to growth and development were analysed in Lysopersicon esculentumMill. plants in response to pre-soaking of seeds followed by foliar spray done with aqueous extract of Croton bonplandianum Baill. In the study it was observed that the aqueous extract of Croton bonplandianum enhanced the chlorophyll and soluble sugar content and reduced the DNA content per gram of tissue, whereas it had no effect on RNA content.
