Carbenicillin, a well-known antibiotic, has been reported to have growth regulator-like activity in vitro for some plant species. In the present paper we add horseradish (Armoracia rusticana) to the list of plants exhibiting such responses. This project began as an effort to eliminate latent bacterial contamination among established in vitro horseradish plants. Carbenicillin (100 mg L−1) added to regeneration medium eliminated all visible bacterial contaminants. Unexpectedly, carbenicillin… CONTINUE READING
