Abstract
Tordon (4-amino-3,5,6-trichloropicolinic acid) applied to the base of excised cuttings of mung bean germinating seedlings effects substantial lengthening of the epicotyl. This is due mainly to increase in length of the epicotyl cells. Other effects on growth are twisting and curvature of stems, petioles and leaf blades, similar to those produced by 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T.
