Application of the cytokinin, N(6)-benzyladenine, to light-grown shoots of dwarf "Meteor" pea seedlings (Pisum sativum L.) markedly increased the rate of turnover of GA20, a native pea gibberellin. It is suggested that endogenous cytokinins may affect gibberellin metabolism in plants by controlling rates of gibberellin turnover.
