Scholarcy highlights

  • Plant hormones have been an important component in crop improvement because they can in some way manipulate or modify plant development
  • Controlled application of phytohormones to crop plants alters their life processes or growth pattern to enhance yield, improve quality and facilitate better post-harvest life. Synthetic hormones those mimic natural plant hormones were used significantly and they are a major component in modern agriculture
  • They are extensively used in plant tissue culture, as weedicides, for initiating uniform flowering parthenocarpic fruit development and even fruit set
  • They have role in stress alleviation and plant’s adaptation to stress
