Response On Growth Of Vetiveria Zizanioides L. On Giberellin Under Salinity Stress Conditions



The aim of this study was to evaluate the responsiveness of growth of Vetiveria Zizanioides L in giberellin under salinity stress conditions. This research was conducted in a greenhouse of Agriculture Faculty, University of Sumatera Utara, Medan. The study used  utterly Non  Factorial Complete Randomized Design. The long-term goal in this research was that in conditions where the plant experiences salinity stress, secondary plant metabolites increase so that they can improve the quality and yield of Vetiveria zizanioides oils. The results of this study was expected to provide information to fragrant root farmers / planters regarding the growth of Vetiveria zizanioides on giberellin in salinity stress
