How Gibberellins were discovered?


Gibberellins are another kind of growth hormones discovered first in Japan. Some of the rice seedlings in the field of a Japanese farmer (Konishi 1898) were growing unusually tall due to the infection from Deuteromycetaceous fungus РGibberella fujikorii (= Fusarium moniliforme). The seedlings generally collapsed due to the unusual elongation of the slender stem. The disease was called the bakanae disease (foolish seedling disease). Subse­quently, two gibberellins were isolated from the fungus.
