    Plant Biology Applications

    The effect of NAA on plant growth is greatly dependent on the time of admission and concentration. When used after four weeks, NAA stimulates shoot growth, while full time use limits growth. When used in a 4-week pulse, adventitious root growth is greatly increased (Ashburner, 1993)
