What are the uses of acids and bases in agriculture?

My group has to report on the applications and/or uses of acids and bases in agriculture. Apart from liming, I couldn't find any other information regarding our topic. Could you please help me, and cite the sources if possible? Many thanks in advance :)

    Many growth regulators like gibberellic acid, naphthalene acetic acid, maleic hydrazide etc are used in agriculture to suppress or enhance the growth of crops or to initiate flowering or to increase the fruit size.
