1-Naphthylacetic acid is used as a plant growth regulator and for plant tissue culture. It is used for the vegetative propagation of plants from stem and leaf cutting, abscission promoter and substrate for auxin inducers of specific plant enzymes. Further, it stimulates root formation in cuttings of woody and herbaceous plants. It is also used to prevent premature flower and fruit drop. It is also employed to control regrowth of tree sprouts after trimminguse. In addition to this, it is used in ornaments and serves as an ingredient in many commercial plant rooting horticultural products.
