Abstract:

The production potential of root vegetables depends on many factors, amongst them; plant growth regulators appreciably influence the growth, yield and quality of produce. They play an important role in producing high value root vegetables and increasing the yield. They promote root growth, increase the number of flowers, fruit size and induce early and uniform fruit ripening. Foliar application of plant growth regulators is reported to improve tuber yield, dry matter and quality characters like starch, total sugars and beta carotene content. Therefore the available literatures relating to the response of plant growth regulators on vegetative, root tuber yield, flowering and quality of root vegetable crops carried out at various places in India and abroad have been briefly reviewed in order to throw light on our existing knowledge, for understanding present problems.


Keywords: Plant growth regulators, Root vegetables, Growth, Yield and Quality.
