Duane W. Greene, University of Massachusetts, has released a presentation entitled, “Apple Growth Management with Plant Growth Regulators.” The presentation provides insights concerning his review of use prohexadione-calcium (Pro-Ca) as a vegetative inhibitor, including application best practices and fruit set results.
A recent research paper entitled, “Regulating the regulators: responses of four plant growth regulators during clonal propagation of Lachenalia montana” evaluates the effects of an auxin and three cytokinin type plant growth regulators — at three different concentrations – on the clonal regeneration of the Lachenalia genus, which is known for its horticultural and ornamental value.
According to a new market research study (Global PGRs Market 2017-2021) by Technavio, the global plant growth regulator market will grow nearly 8 percent from 2017-2021. The top three revenue-generating segments of this industry are reported to be: cytokinins, auxins and gibberellins. A free sample of the report is available.
At the 43rd Annual PGRSA Conference, Steve McArtney, Valent BioSciences (VSB), presented the VBS best student oral presentation award to Bizhen Hu (center) and VBS best student poster presentation award to Josh Henry.
