Pyongyang, May 24 (KCNA) — Scientists of the Biological Faculty of Kim Hyong Jik University of Education in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have developed a matter to regulate the growth of Kimjongilia and established a methodology of its production and use.
The matter, a kind of auxine, is made with raw materials rich in the country.
According to Dr. Ro Myong Suk who led the research team, a small amount of the matter applied to the end of peduncle is enough to prevent buds and flowers from falling and keep flowers in bloom for a month or more. It thus provides a scientific guarantee of making a selected healthy bud of a plant open larger and more beautifully.
The research team has also found out a new method of preventing Kimjongilia, a typical long-day plant, from its dormancy so as to open any time needed.
