Growth hormones for plants?

TheMasterGardener1(5B)July 2, 2012

I first want to thank Tapla for showing me Liebig's law of the minimum. I have learned countless information from Tapla. He inspired me to make an example of why plant hormones are not needed and do little to nothing when included in a fertilizer program using Liebig's law of the minimum.

My example of Liebig's law of the minimum.

"If a fertilizer program was missing CK's, GA's and Auxin and had all basic macro and micronutrients (including calcium I used for an example) yield and the nutrition of the crop would be high.

Now if a fertilizer program had CK's, GA's and Auxin and all macro and micronutrient EXCEPT Calcium, then you would have a lot of problems.

Key Point-What I am saying is CK's, GA's and Auxin are not needed like calcium is thus are not as effective at increasing yield.

This is an example of Liebig's law of the minimum"

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Don't take this the wrong way but even amateur and pro sports players tell us that adding additional hormones can make some drastic changes.
