Abstract

Winter hardiness is one of the main factors affecting harvestable yields in winter oats. As breeding for high yields is generally accompanied by reduced winter hardiness, the possible beneficial effects of applying an experimental plant growth regulator (pgr) as a seed dressing were investigated in a pot experiment. The cultivars Bulwark and Peniarth, sown at four depths, were used.
