The article presents a study that deals with the propagation of oaks using two approaches. They include the use of etiolation in conjunction with the modified stoolbed technique and the use of practices aimed at reducing endogenous cytokinin levels. The second approach is based on the thought that reduction in the plants' endogenous cytokinin levels may improve the potential for adventitious root formation. Based on their study, the authors highlighted the role of end-of-day light in improving adventitious rooting.
