Benefits of Gibberellic Acid 0.001%
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.
