Plant growth regulators

Plant growth regulators, commonly known as PGRs are natural or synthetic hormones that slow down or speed up the growth of a plant. Plant growth regulators can alter the growth of a specific part of the plant or of the overall plant in general. They are useful for encouraging fruit or flower production—or, for killing or restricting undesired plants.

Plant hormones are produced naturally by plants and are essential for regulating their own growth. They act by controlling or modifying plant growth processes, such as formation of leaves and flowers, elongation of stems, development and ripening of fruit. In modern agriculture, people have established the benefits of extending the use of plant hormones to regulate growth of other plants. When natural or synthetic substances used in this way, they are called Plant Growth Regulators.

The application of plant growth regulators in agriculture has started in the 1930s in the USA . Ethylene, a naturally occurring substance, is one of the first plant growth regulators being discovered and used successfully for enhancing flower production in pineapple. Its toxic effects to human beings are low. Synthetic substances that mimic such naturally occurring plant hormones were also produced, since then the use of plant growth regulators has grown much and becoming a major part in modern agriculture.
