6-BA is the first synthetic cytokinin. It can inhibit degradation of chlorophyll, nucleic acid and protein, promote delivery of amino acid, inorganic salt and growth regulators to applied positions. It helps plant to keep green and retard aging. It can be used in agriculture, horticulture, for plants at different stages, from germination to harvest.
