Effects of Selected Herbicides and Plant Hormones on Prototheca Wickerhamii

J Med Microbiol. 1976 Feb;9(1):23-7. doi: 10.1099/00222615-9-1-23.

Abstract

Prototheca wickerhamii was treated in vitro with 11 different herbicides and plant hormones. Growth was inhibited by indolyl-3-acetic acid, indolyl-3-butyric acid and indolyl-3-propionic acid at 400 mug per ml. Coconut milk was stimulatory.
