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.
The PRGSA has an excellent program set for the 43rd Annual PGRSA Conference, which will take place from July 16 – July 21, 2016. The conference will play host to numerous leading scientists involved in a cross section of current topics in Plant Growth Regulation. In addition to outstanding invited keynote presentations, there will be a dynamic program of submitted papers and posters across a broad range of topics related to growth regulation and crop improvement.
