Plant hormones and growth regulators are chemicals that affect:. These growth-regulating substances most often are applied as a spray to foliage or as a liquid drench to the soil around a plant's base. Applied concentrations of these substances usually are measured in parts per million ppm and in some cases parts per billion ppb. Generally, their effects are short-lived, and they may need to be reapplied in order to achieve the desired effect. There are five groups of plant-growth-regulating compounds: auxin, gibberellin GA , cytokinin, ethylene, and abscisic acid ABA.

There are five groups of plant-growth-regulating compounds: auxin, gibberellin GA , cytokinin, ethylene, and abscisic acid ABA. For the most part, each group contains both naturally occurring hormones and synthetic substances. Auxin is the active ingredient in most rooting compounds in which cuttings are dipped during vegetative propagation. The seeds of some species are difficult to germinate; you can soak them in a GA solution to get them started. They stimulate cell division and often are included in the sterile media used for growing plants from tissue culture.
If a medium's mix of growth-regulating compounds is high in cytokinins and low in auxin, the tissue culture explant small plant part will produce numerous shoots. On the other hand, if the mix has a high ratio of auxin to cytokinin, the explant will produce more roots.
Cytokinins also are used to delay aging and death senescence. It induces ripening, causes leaves to droop epinasty and drop abscission , and promotes senescence. Plants often increase ethylene production in response to stress, and ethylene often is found in high concentrations within cells at the end of a plant's life. The increased ethylene in leaf tissue in the fall is part of the reason leaves fall off trees.
Ethylene also is used to ripen fruit e. It induces dormancy and prevents seeds from germinating; causes abscission of leaves, fruits, and flowers; and causes stomata to close. High concentrations of ABA in guard cells during periods of drought stress probably play a role in stomatal closure.

30.7E: Auxins, Cytokinins, and Gibberellins
Plant growth regulators have been used for many years, primarily as a tool to obtain height control or to promote rooting. Today, there are many fascinating and innovative ways to use the tools of yesterday. Plant growth regulators are now being used as seed soaks, bulb dips, media sprays and controlled residue. Just as exciting are the new products being developed for specific tasks such as reducing leaf yellowing, promoting the growth of offsets, reducing the shattering of flowers, increasing the longevity of flowering and increasing chloroplast efficiency. The most common method of applying growth regulators is spray applications.
Plant hormones also known as phytohormones are signal molecules , produced within plants , that occur in extremely low concentrations. Plant hormones control all aspects of plant growth and development, from embryogenesis ,  the regulation of organ size, pathogen defense,   stress tolerance   and through to reproductive development. Phytohormones occur across the plant kingdom , and even in algae , where they have similar functions to those seen in higher plants. The word hormone is derived from Greek, meaning set in motion. Plant hormones affect gene expression and transcription levels, cellular division, and growth. They are naturally produced within plants, though very similar chemicals are produced by fungi and bacteria that can also affect plant growth. They are used to regulate the growth of cultivated plants, weeds , and in vitro -grown plants and plant cells; these manmade compounds are called plant growth regulators or PGRs for short.
Plant Growth Regulators pp Cite as. A principal objective of the agricultural and horticultural industries is to manipulate plant growth and development so that the quantity or quality of a crop is increased. In the past, this has been achieved primarily through the skills of plant breeders, although the first use of chemicals for this purpose can be traced back to the mids. Since then there has been an increasing drive to identify chemicals with the ability to manipulate plant growth. Advantages ascribed to the chemical manipulation of plant growth include the time-scale involved to achieve a commercially desirable result, the flexibility of the treatment, and the breadth of potential targets available.
Detailed discussions on the use of PGRs in, for example, grain, ornamental, and citrus crops, introduce readers to strategies for enhancing crop quantity and.

Since the 's, natural and synthetic plant growth regulators have been used with increasing incidence to modify crop plants by changing the rate or pattern, or both, of their responses to the internal and external factors that govern development from germination through vegetative growth, reproductive development, maturity, senescence or aging, and postharvest preservation. This review deals with the history of plant growth regulators, regulation of plant metabolism, control of flowering, effects on fruit set and development, control of abscission, control of plant and organ size, recently developed plant growth regulators, and the perceived future for these compounds as related to agricultural needs and economics, the strategies for future searches for effective compounds, and the influence of regulatory issues on the development and availability of these compounds.

Metrics details. Plant growth regulators are chemical substances which govern all the factors of development and growth within plants. The application of plant growth regulators to crops modifies hormonal balance and growth leading to increased yield, enhanced crop tolerance against abiotic stress and improved physiological trait of crops. Paclobutrazol PBZ [ 2RS, 3RS 4-chlorophenyl - 4, 4-dimethyl 1H-1, 2, 4-trizolyl -pentanol], is one of the members of triazole family having growth regulating property. PBZ affects the isoprenoid pathway, and alters the levels of plant hormones by inhibiting gibberellin synthesis and increasing cytokinins level and consequent reduction in stem elongation.

There are many types of plant hormones. They are used in agriculture and horticulture to have a specific effect. Auxins were the first class of plant hormones to be discovered. Their main function is to help plants grow and auxin stimulates plant cells to elongate. The apical meristem of a plant is one of the main places where auxin is produced. The apical meristem is also the location that all other parts of a plant grow from - the stem, leaves, and flowers.
Auxin , any of a group of plant hormones that regulate growth, particularly by stimulating cell elongation in stems. Auxins also play a role in cell division and differentiation, in fruit development, in the formation of roots from cuttings, in the inhibition of lateral branching apical dominance , and in leaf fall abscission. This hormone affects plants by its action on chemical bonds of carbohydrates comprising plant cell walls. The process permits the cells to be irreversibly altered and is accompanied by the entry of water and the synthesis of new cell wall material.
