Abstract
The effect of abscisic acid (ABA) on the growth of maize roots maintained in the dark is investigated in relation to the root varieties and the root age, the mode of application, the concentration used and the duration of both the treatment and the culture. In all the assays, when ABA produces a significant change in root elongation, it shows an inhibitory effect which is enhanced with increasing ABA concentration. The data strongly support the hypothesis that ABA could be one of the growth inhibitors which are formed in or released from the root cap.
