Gibberellin-induced and cytokinin-induced growth and flowering responses in Rudbeckia hirta L.

AbstractEvaluates the effects of applied plant growth regulators (benzyladenine and gibberellins) to Rudbeckia hirta to stimulate flowering. Benzyladenine had no effect on flowering. Gibberellins may enhance the long day effect on the apical meristem of Rudbeckia, but axillary meristems that initiate later remained unaffected.
