What is it?
It’s a synthetic cytokinin that stimulates cell division when added to growth media such as Murashige and Skoog media in conjunction with auxins.
It helps to stimulate cell division and promote the proper growth of plants.
It induces callus development and shoots initiation from callus at its later stages.
It’s used for shoot induction and proliferation.
