Plant Growth Regulators 5-Aminolevulinic Acid HCl (5-ALA)

5-Ala can regulate the synthesis of chlorophyll, improve the stability of chlorophyll and light system, To improve photosynthetic efficiency to promote the photosynthesis; Promote plant tissue differentiation and inhibit plant breathing in dark, enlarging stomatal and other basic physiological activity. So it is not only a kind of metabolic intermediate, but it is also involved in regulation process of plant growth, it has the similar physiological activity of plant hormone, so it can be used as plant growth regulator in the agricultural production.
