Seminar Description:
Plant growth regulators can be used in many ways. We use them to reduce canopy growth under utility lines, we use them to increase blooms in nursery plants, and we use them to improve plant health. Plant growth regulators can do more then was ever thought possible. We are going to look at how and why trees respond to plant growth regulators. We will look at the effects of plant growth regulators on the tree and visual effects of the trees. We will then look at how we can use plant growth regulators to mitigate drought and chlorotic effects on trees and even reduce some infections.

Learning Objectives:
1. How plant growth regulators work.
2. Plant responses to plant growth regulators.
3. Secondary effects for plant growth regulators.
