Treated seeds germinated 10 days earlier than controls. Growth rate was increased following treatment with high levels of gibberellic acid (75 and 100 ppm), but declined after two months. Foliar application resulted in greater leaf growth than soil application. Utilization of applied gibberellic acid was found to depend upon the light intensity received by the plants. Gibberellic acid was also responsible for uniform flower bud movement and greater flower opening. (ICO. Library Monthly Entries (no.107) p. 12. 1989)
