In this study, the first and second harvesting Pisang Awak in the field were sprayed with different dosage of paclobutrazol in order to analyze the mechanism of its induction of flowering. The results showed that there was no significant difference in the total number of newly extracted leaves between treatments. The first harvesting was 3.0 g/plant, and the second one was 2.0 g/plant. The pumping speed of leaves is the fastest and the accumulation of leaves number is the earliest. The 3.0 g/plant treatment of first harvesting Pisang Awak had the earliest bud extraction stage, and the bud extraction rate reached 62.5% at 170 days after treatment, about 40 days earlier than control group. Within the range of 1.0~5.0 g/plant, PP333 promoted carbohydrate synthesis in leaves of Pisang Awak, significantly reduced the accumulation of nitrogen, significantly increased the carbon-nitrogen ratio (C/N), and significantly reduced the contents of GA3 and IAA in the leaves. The results showed that the exogenous polyazole could accelerate the pumping speed of leaves, promote flowering and early bud extraction by regulating the distribution of carbon and nitrogen nutrients and the content of endogenous hormones, thus providing technical guidance for the management of early bud extraction culture of Pisang Awak.
