What are synthetic auxins and what are their uses?

1 year ago

Synthetic auxins, like indolebutyric acid (IBA) and naphthalenic acid (NAA) are substances similar to IAA (a natural auxin) but artificially made. Some are used to accelerate methods of asexual reproduction (like grafting or budding) and others are even used as herbicides since they selectively kill some plants (mainly dicots).
