Keeping this in view, how are cytokinins used in agriculture?
Cytokinins are one of the key phytohormones, which induce the cell division in plant roots and shoots. Cytokinins help in preventing the senescence of fruits, flowers, and leaves. They stop staining and yellowing of fruits and leaves. Cytokinins are commonly used in the agriculture industry to increase the yield.
Which hormone has inhibiting effects on growth of plants?
Plant hormones are chemicals that promote or inhibit growth in plants. There are 5 main types of plant hormones. Auxin, commonly abbreviated as IAA, gibberellins and cytokininins all promote plant growth. Abcisic acid and ethylene inhibit plant growth.
