An ether-soluble growth inhibitor complex was extracted from the bark of Abies balsamea (L.) Mill. In the Avena first-internode straight-growth bioassay the inhibitor strongly suppressed IAA-induced growth except at very low concentrations which acted synergistically with IAA. The possible role of the inhibitor in controlling cambial activity is discussed.
