Use of plant growth regulators in fruit crops
Somandeep Kaur, Ramandeep Kumar and Jagsir Singh
The plant hormones are highly important agent in the integration of developmental activities in plants. Environmental factors often create inductive effects by changes in hormones in metabolism and distribution within the plant. Control of genetic expression has been demonstrated for the phytohormones at both transcriptional and translational levels. Phytohormones are organic substances produced naturally in higher plants, controlling growth or other physiological functions at a site remote from its place of production and active in very small amounts. Plant Growth regulators also known as bio-stimulants that modifies yield, quality and postharvest life the physiological processes in plant<em>. </em>The use of growth regulators has become an important component of agro-technical procedures for most of the fruit plants. In this review, we focus on the major functions of plant growth regulators in fruit production.
