GA3, or gibberellic acid, is a hormone found in plants and fungi. It is a white to pale-yellow solid when refined. Plants create a lot of GA3 in their natural condition. Microorganisms can be used to generate hormones on a large scale.
Molecular Formulae- C19H22O6 CAS 77-06-5
ADVANTAGES AND USES
- It is used as a plant growth regulator to increase cell division and elongation in leaves and stems.
- They can activate mitotic division in some plants' leaves, and boost seed germination rates.
- Gibberellic acid is occasionally used in laboratories and greenhouses to stimulate germination in seeds that would otherwise remain dormant.
- It is also commonly utilised as a hormone in the grape-growing business to stimulate the formation of larger bunches and larger grapes.
- In the cherry industry, it is also utilised as a growth regulator.
- GA3 is commonly employed in the malting of barley. It promotes development in normally dormant kernels, resulting in a uniform and quick growth.
HOW IT WORKS
- It works by providing essential hormones to the plants that help in boosting crop production.
- Gibberellic acid works by promoting cell growth, production of buds, and faster growth of flowers and fruits.
TIME OF APPLICATION
- It can be used all around the year.
- It can be used once a month since it is not taken up by the plants and will remain in the soil for a long time.
- It is recommended that it be used in concentrations between 0.01 and 10 mg/L.
HOW TO USE
- Our gibberellic acid after mixing with ethanol should be added to a sprayer or mixing tank that is already filled with fresh water.
- Spray directly on the soil or near the plant roots.
