    Hi guys,
    Can anyone please help with this assessment please?

    1. With specific reference to seeds, explain the changes that take place in hormone activity as a seed germinates. From initial water imhibition to the emergence of the cotyledon leaves.

    2. With specific reference to the micro-propagation of plants, explain the changes that take place in hormone activity for:
    a. the reproduction of the shoot material (pre-transplant)
    b. separation and rooting of individual new shoots (transplant stage)

    3. Describe the physiological processes occuring in the plant material during a and b above.

    Seriously, we have to write 1500 words, all I can find for part 1 is two sentences!!!!

    Am I going crazy? Although when I asked tutor, he seemed confused, as if he didn't even think the question through and just wrote anything random down!

    Rant over.
