NFX Nanofiltration Membrane
Gibberellins (GA3) are the plant hormones that can be used to stimulate plant growth by influencing various developmental processes such as stem elongation, germination, and dormancy. The application of these hormones has led to significant increases in the yields of rice, wheat, corn, vegetable, and fruit harvests. An efficient and reliable method for concentrating gibberellins is vital for pharmaceutical companies manufacturing these hormones.
