Plant Growth Regulator (PGR)

Since last three decades we are efficiently catering to the requirements of Indian farmers. We manufacture and supply the premier quality of Plant Growth Regulators which are widely applicable for plants growth. Our plant growth regulators are designed to regulate numerous key processes in plants, including response to stress conditions, dormancy, maturation, abscission and growth. We understand the needs of our customers and develop suitable regulators that meet up with their prospects.

Plant Growth Regulator

Plant growth regulators (PGRs), as the name suggests, are certain chemicals that are designed to facilitate plant growth and development. They can be applicable for particular functions to affect specific plant responses. Innovation has been a life-sustaining component in our products, we are continuously starving for the betterment to provide more benefits.

Plant growth regulators put up numerous significant benefits, growth reduction making up is just one. PGRs are increasingly getting popular as turf and landscape directors find out ways to incorporate these products into their maintenance programs. Environmental Protection Agency defines a plant regulator as substance or mixture of substances specified, through physiological action, to speed up or slow down the rate of growth or maturation, or otherwise alter the behavior of plants.

PGRs can perform many other functions. For example :

  • PGRs can suppress turf growth during over seeding to give the new seedlings a quick start.
  • Some PGRs conquer or suppress unsightly Poa annua seedheads.
  • Similarly, PGRs can get rid of tall seedheads in some roadside grasses.
  • PGRs can inhibit growth of Poa annua more than that of desirable turf grasses, giving them a competitive reward between a handled stand.
  • Chemical adjoining with PGRs controls growth of turf around tree trunks, landscape mendings and borders, which can importantly contract reducing.
  • Some PGRs also can amend the overall health and dynamism of their turf for better color and focus allowance.
These plant growth regulator can be classified into two major categories :
  • Chemical Based Plant Growth Regulator
  • Organic Based Plant Growth Regulator
Some of the chemical based plant growth regulators are listed below :

Paclobutrazol suppresses gibberellin and sterol biosynthesis, hence the rate of cell segmentation. This compound is used on fruit trees to inhibit vegetational emergence and to amend fruit set; on pot-grown ornamentals and flower crops to inhibit growth. It is also helpful to increase stooling on rice. It reduces depositing and increase production. On turf, it retards growth; and on grass seed crops to reduce height and prevent lodging. To be applicable as a soil drench, as a foliar spray, or by body injection. Has some antifungal action against mold and rustings.

Triacontanol is a compound possessing surmounting plant growth boosting attributes. This chemical is a transparent substance used for increasing the dry weight and water consumption of rice plant when scattered on the leaf or implemented in nourishing cultivation. This compound is also applicable to increase the growth of corn, and barley grown in soil. It has been exposed as a component part of tea. Tea wastes from instant tea treating, green tea and black tea have minifying amounts of this compound in that place. This may be attributed to the more eminent evoking temperatures in the case of green tea and black tea. Triacontanol does not seem to have any side effects on plants.

Gibberellic acid
Gibberellic acid is a plant growth regulator, used in a variety of applications, eg.
  • Helps to increase yields and aid harvesting of hops
  • It advances flowering and increase the yield of strawberries.
  • This compound induces uniform bolting and increase seed production in lettuce for seed.
  • Reduces dormancy and stimulate sprouting in seed potatoes
  • It helps to loosen and stretch bunches and increase berry size in grapes
  • Control fruit maturity by delaying development of the yellow color in lemons
  • Helps to produce uniform seeding growth in rice; to promote elongation of winter celery crop
Indole acetic acid (IAA)
Indole acetic acid is a growth regulator, it may promote cell division in the growing stage of plant. Hence, it is mainly applied to facilitate mature, step-up output, break quiescence, encourage germination and cultivator. Indole acetic acid is specially applied to make seeds of rice crossbreeding and gives a higher production. It also facilitates the production of brighter-colored, firmer fruit and increases the size of sweet cherries. There is numerous wide use of IAA during the production of fruits and vegetables.

Indole butyric acid (IBA)
Indole-3-butyric acid is used on many cultivates and plants to promote growth and evolution of roots, flowers and fruits, and to increase crop yields. It enhances the growth and development of food crops and ornamentals when applied to soil, cuttings, or leaves. Since it is similar in structure to naturally going on contents and is used in petite amounts. This plant growth regulator places no known risks to humans or the environment. Agriculturists find it more efficient than its natural vis-à-vis because plants cannot break it down as rapidly.
Organic based plant growth regulators are :

Our company manufactures and export premier quality of organic based plant growth regulators like Salute, which is a 100% biological product with immediate results. We manufacture two types of trade marked Salute, first one is based on naturally derived hydrolyzed proteins and the other one incorporates 100% Granules. Salute promotes flowering and prevents premature falling of flowers. It increases the chlorophyll content providing greenness to the plant. It helps to retard the premature falling of fruits, nuts or pods and boosts the size of the fruits, vegetables, pods or nuts giving healthy visual aspect. Being eco-friendly & non toxic, Salute helps to accelerate the root growth & enhances absorption level of the roots.
