Abstract

The affect of cytokinins on leaf senescence was studied on in vitro Annona glabra plants. Chlorophyll concentrations were higher when plants were treated with kinetin and zeatin than when other cytokinins were used. Greatest leaf retention was observed when plants were treated with BAP and kinetin.
