A Proposal for the Application of Growth Regulators in Turkey in Relation to Agricultural Potential

Part of the Nato Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 22)

Abstract

It is well known that a worldwide application of plant growth regulators to increase yield has not been made to a large extent before now. We can say that we are actually only at the beginning of the commercial exploitation of plant growth substances in the production, harvesting, and storage of food (Barrass, 1974).
