Did You Know?

 
Plant hormone discovery has horticultural potential

Strigolactone, discovered at the
University of Queensland, could be used to manipulate the size and shape of plants by controlling branching.

The chemical suppresses branch development, which could be advantageous in forestry.

On the other hand, repression of the chemical could encourage branching, which is often desirable in orchard production and other horticultural applications.

Interestingly, the chemical is quite similar to one called karrikins from smoke, which stimulates germination of some seeds (but does not affect branching).
