Researchers at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), report about a breakthrough in our understanding of how plants control their flowering. In an article in Science, Thursday 11th they show how a small molecule that is formed in the plant leaves is transported to the shoot tips where it induces the formation of flowers. This new knowledge can lead to the development of tools for control of the timing of plant flowering in agriculture and forestry.
