This paper reports an investigation of effects of roots, and effects of synthetic cytokinins, on inflorescence growth in vine cuttings.

In woody cuttings of the grape vine, inflorescences of fertile buds usually fail to develop and atrophy soon after bud burst.

Results presented here indicate that this effect is related to absence of roots at planting.

Effects of roots, and effects of synthetic cytokinins, are discussed in relation to recent discoveries of endogenous cytokinins in the ascending sap of vines.
