  • It has a great application in hybridization programme.
  • Useful for successive cultivation of agricultural crops.
  • The yield of tubers, bulbs, rhizomes, corms can be increased by the knowledge of photoperiodism.
  • The vegetable can be made to remain vegetative for longer periods and annuals can be growth 2-3 times a year.
