gib·ber·el·lic ac·id

(jib'ĕr-el-ik as'id),
An auxin, that is, a plant hormone that stimulates growth; most prominent of the plant-growth-promoting metabolites of Gibberella fujikuroi. Used as a plant growth regulator and promoter, especially the growth of seedlings and also as a food additive in the malting of barley.

gibberellic acid

a crystalline acid that occurs in plants having similar growth-promoting effects to GIBBERELLINS.
