An experiment was conducted during rabi 2016-17 at Research Farm, College of Horticulture, Mandsaur (Madhya Pradesh) to study the effect of PGRs on growth yield and quality of coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) cv. NRCSS Acr-1. The ten treatments included control (water spray), three concentrations of NAA (25, 50 and 75 ppm), three concentrations of GA3 (10, 25 and 50 ppm) and three concentrations of Cycocel (100, 200 and 300 ppm). Among different PGRs applied, spray of GA3 50 ppm significantly registered highest value of plant height (cm), Fresh weight of plant (g), minimum days taken to 50 % flowering, test weight (g), SPAD value, essential oil content in seed (%) and dry matter content in seed (%).However the maximum number of branches, number of umbels, number of umbellets, number of seeds, seed yield (q ha-1) and biological yield(q ha-1) were recorded with the foliar application of Cycocel 300 ppm. The maximum benefit:cost ratio (4.05:1) was also found with 50 ppm GA3.
