Studies on the Effect of Brassinosteroids on the Qualitative Changes in the Storage Roots of Radish
S. Seeta Ram Rao, B. Vidya Vardhini, E. Sujatha
Abstract: The effect of 24-epibrassinolide and 28-homobrassinolide on the qualitative changes in the storage roots of radish was studied. Brassinosteroids stimulated the growth of radish roots. The root growth promotion was associated with increased levels of reducing sugars, starch, soluble proteins and minerals like phosphorous, potassium, calcium, iron and sodium. Brassinosteroids also considerably increased the contents of vitamins i.e. ascorbic acid and niacin present in the roots indicating their ability to improve the quality of storage roots of radish.
