Abstract

Successful commercialization of guayule (Parthenium argentatum Gray) depends on breeding and genetics to select and develop new high-yielding cultivars with good rubber quantity and quality. Many factors affect the physical properties of natural rubber (NR). The present study was undertaken to determine the effect of postharvest field storage of whole guayule plants on the quantity and quality of NR under Arizona conditions. Several different USDA lines, along with an interspecific hybrid, were included to study varietal differences. Plants in this study were grown under two irrigation regimes to test the effect of wet and dry growth conditions on NR.
