Aqueous solutions of low concentrations of salicylic acid (SA), applied as a spray to the shoots of 3-month-old Pinus patula Schiede ex Schltdl. & Cham seedlings, significantly increased the biomass of the plants. The measurements were taken after nine monthly treatments. Stem diameter and height of the plants were increased by 10-10 and 10-8 M SA. Similarly, applications of 10-8 and 10-6 M SA increased fresh stem weight by 33 and 30%, respectively, and the dry stem weight by 65 and 44%. Increases of 28–30% in gross root length were detected in applications of 10-8 and 10-6 M SA, which were reinforced by increases of 33% in fresh root weight, and of 45 to 54% in dry root weight. South. J. Appl. For. 27(1):52–54.
