Effect of vitamin K on the preclimacteric life of bananas

Peacock, B.C. (1973) Effect of vitamin K on the preclimacteric life of bananas. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 30 (1). pp. 41-43.



Vitamin K treatment shortened the green-life of bananas. No explanation for this effect is offered. It is suggested that the opposite effect reported by Beccari [see HcA 41, 2511] was due to a high level of anthracnose (Colletotrichum musae).
