The effects of gibberellin (GA) on cold-induced stem elongation and flowering of Japanese radish (Raphanus sativus L.) were investigated using application of GA3 and a GA-biosynthesis inhibitor, uniconazole (UCZ). UCZ very strongly inhibited stem elongation and delayed flowering, and the inhibition and delay were completely reversed by GA3 application. These results suggest that GA is necessary not only in the stem elongation but also in the flowering. When cold treatment (CT) was conducted on… CONTINUE READING
