Growth regulators, also known as phytohormones, are substances that act as hormones in plants to regulate faster plant growth. In general hydroponics most plants naturally generate growth regulators for various development processes, like formation of stems, leaves, flowers, shedding of leaves and ripening of fruits. They also help to shape the plant appropriately, affect the seeding phase, the right time of flowering, the sex of flowers and aging of vegetables and fruits. However, growers with the help of artificial growth regulators can push the growth of plants to get desired results. Growth regulators are produced in low concentrations and sometimes plants also produce regulators that encourage growth in other plants.
With the help of growth regulators plant can easily respond to environmental pressures. For instance, during the draught conditions, growth of a plant is suppressed because of less water. And, during the year where there is enough rain, the growth of a plant is triggered as the tree takes full advantage of different weather conditions. It’s very important to give your plants special attention while providing them water, growth regulators or fertilizers, as it damage your plants.
When people trick plants with applications of water, fertilizers, or growth regulators, sometimes they become unhealthy unless they are closely monitored. With the help of artificial growth regulators you can accomplish different goals, such as productions of healthy roots, encourage faster fruiting, reduce the number of suckers etc. Growth regulators are very helpful to grow ornamentals because they can efficiently prolong the flowering phase to give bigger and colorful flowers; they are also used for faster growth of vines, new leaves and fruits etc. These chemicals are easily available at nurseries and any local garden supply retailer. You can also purchase a natural product directly derived from plants mixed with synthetics prepared in the lab.
You can now get uniform development of crops with the help of growth regulators for quick harvests and you can control the overall development of your crops to carry out efficient farming on a large scale. Growth regulators simplify the whole process of cultivation by triggering the growth of flowers and fruits and they also ensure the right time for harvesting to the growers.
