Applications

    Plant Biology Applications

    Auxin herbicides are involved in many developmental processes including differentiation of vascular tissue, formation of lateral and adventitious roots, apical dominance control, and tropic responses such as growing towards light. High concentrations of auxinic herbicides can however cause various growth abnormalities. In broadleaf dicots, Picloram can cause leaf epinasty and/or cupping, stem twisting, root and stem thickening and leading to chlorosis and necrosis (Zheng, 2001).
