ABSTRACT
The tree growth regulator paclobutrazol (PAC) was detected using a simplified high pressure liquid chromatography technique. PAC was detected in both xylem and phloem sap 6 months after trees were injected with the compound. PAC is believed to be exclusively xylem mobile in plants, thus its detection in the phloem during this experiment was unexpected. The technique presented is simple and effective and avoids the use of radioactive material and complicated purification processes before analysis.
