SALICYLIC ACID - A Plant Hormone

Phytohormones are very much involved in directing plant growth, in a coordinated fashion in association with metabolism that provides energy and the building blocks to develop the form that we recognize as plant. Out of the recognized hormones, attention has largely been focused on Auxins, Gibberell...
