Unformatted text preview: Affects of Gibberellic Acid and Abscissic Acid on Growing Seeds By: Kelly Gerdeman This experiment was done to test the different affects of Gibberellic acid (GA) and Abscissic acid (ABA) on growing seeds. The purpose of the experiment is to investigate what hormone would work best in things like fertilizers for crop corn. In the future this information could be very beneficial to farmers in situations like late planting due to weather, or if they just want to harvest sooner. The hypothesis for this experiment was that the corn seed that was watered with the GA would mature the fastest. During this experiment things that were observed and compared were date of plant sprouting from seed, plant color and plant length. In the end all of the seeds sprouted but the seeds that were watered with GA ended up being the largest. Gibberellic acid promotes the growth and elongation of cells (1). When used in small amounts gibberellic acid can be qui9te beneficial to plants and growers of plants. Because GA regulates growth, gibberellic acid can be qui9te beneficial to plants and growers of plants....
