Gibberellins (GAs) are increasingly proving to be a crucial regulator of plant growth and a controlling factor of plant architecture. They regulate various physiological and biochemical processes of plant growth and development, promote germination

network of five flowering pathways that involve response to daylength, vernalization, carbohydrates, gibberellins, and an age-related autonomous pathway. However, the five pathways ultimately converge on the floral integrator genes leafy ( LFY

temperatures at the full bloom stage, when air temperatures of 28 and 25 °F are predicted to kill 10% and 90% of the blooms, respectively ( Ballard et al., 1998 ). Foliar gibberellin (GA) sprays during bloom increase fruit set in pear ( Pyrus communis ) by

Gibberellins are phytohormones that promote important aspects of growth, such as seed germination, leaf expansion, stem elongation, flowering, and fruit development ( Davies, 1995 ). In woody plants, many GA-mediated processes are agriculturally
