The effects of a 3-min dip in various concentrations (0-1-100 mg litre-') of a triacontanol emulsion on sprout growth jiom single-eye pieces of seed potuto (Solanum tuberosum L) tubers were assessed after 10 days' growth in acidwashed sand. Treatment effects were compared with those resulting from immersion for 3 min in a mixture of gibberellic acid (6 mg litre- ') and ethrel (4 mg litre- '). Triacontanol dips were more effective than gibberellic acid and ethrel. Treatments increased the fiesh weight of sprouts but had little effect on sprout number per tuber fiagment. The optimum concentration of triacontanol was 10 mg litre- ' .
