  • Uses Of Plant Hormones
    • Weed Killers
      • Speeds up the growing rate
      • Weeds absorb the weed killer more than the beneficial plants do
      • Selective weed killers kill some weeds but not all weeds
        • For example, getting rid of dandelions without killing the grass
    • Rooting Powder
      • Make stem cuttings develop quickly

      • Develops roots
    • Dormancy
      • Stops seeds from growing
      • Can germinate seeds all year round
      • Flowers
        • Bushier
        • Control growth
    • Controlling Fruit Ripening
      • Different speeds
        • Some slow ripening down
        • Some speed ripening up
      • Helps fruit to last longer
      • Can transport fruit easier

  • Contains auxin
    • Rooting Powder
