IBA-K mainly used to promote rooting cuttings, induce root formation, promote cell differentiation and cell division.IBA-K is beneficial to new root formation and differentiation of vascular bundle,promote cuttings adventitious roots formation.The effect of IBA-K to promote root growth is better than IAA, K-IBA have a good stability, hardly transmit in plant bodyand only stays at the processing parts. It's very safe for application, so it’s used in wash fertilizer and basic fertilizer largely.
IBA-K mixed with NAA-NA
When used to promote root growth, usually mix with Sodium NAA as a certain ratio, not only enhance root growth well, but also decrease cost.
1. To stimulate rooting of herbaceous and woody ornamentals;
2. To make some transplanted crops root early and root more;
3. To promote root elongation growth and root lignification of flowers
4. (for example: jasmine, begonia, camellia, etc);
5. To promote fruit set of vegetables and fruits by soaking the branches
6. ( for example: tomato, cucumber, fig, strawberry, raspberry, etc);
7. It would get better effect when used together with other rooting reagent.
It can be used alone and also with sodium a-naphthalencetic acid at certain ratio. It is the best rooting accelerator.
