ProGibb® is a gibberellic acid (GA3) plant growth regulator product. GA3 is found naturally in virtually all plant species. It is a highly effective growth promoter – increasing size and quality of fruits, vegetables, and other crops, essential for optimum growth and development. GA3 also plays a role in the regulation of other plant processes such as flowering, seed germination, dormancy, and senescence. ProGibb is used in many crops to improve crop quality and value.
