Gibberellic Acid 0.001% (PEP GIBB LIQUID)


Gibberellic Acid is a hormone extracted from plants and fungi being widely used as a plant growth regulator. Gibberellic acid is a tetracyclic di-terpenoid hormone regulates plant growth. Even though it is present in plants, it is produced at a very low rate. Plants with growth hormone deficiency have a slow or flat rate of growth. 


  • Overcoming Dormancy: Treatment of seeds/tubers before sowing with Gibberellic acid is effective in overcoming dormancy and causing rapid germination of seed.
  • Premature Flowering: Flowering may be induced by direct application of Gibberellic acid to young plants.  This action is not sustained and treatment may have to be repeated.
  • Increased In Fruit Set: When there is a difficulty with fruit set, Gibberellic acid may be effective.  The resulting fruit may be partially or entirely seedless.
  • Hybridizing: Pollination within self-incompatible clones and between closely related species may some times be forced by the application of Gibberellic acid and cytokinin to the blooms at the time of hand pollination.
  • Increased Growth: Gibberellic acid applied near the terminal bud of trees may increase the rate of growth by stimulating more or less constant growth during the season.
  • Frost Protection: Spraying fruit trees at full-blossom or when the blossoms begin to wither can offset the detrimental effects of frost. 

Direction Of Use
