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 – Gibberella 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.
