PGR, Potato, Auxins, Gibberellins, Cytokinens


This study explores the complex connection between plant growth regulators (PGRs) and the growth patterns and crop production of potatoes (Solanum tuberosum). The study aims to explore the impact of selected PGRs on different growth parameters and tuber development, with the goal of promoting sustainable agricultural practices and improving crop productivity. A randomized control trial was conducted, incorporating commonly used plant growth regulators, including auxins, gibberellins, and cytokinins, applied at critical stages of potato development. Thorough evaluations included measurements of plant height, leaf area, root development, and tuber characteristics. The study also examined tuber yield, quality attributes, and biochemical composition to gain a comprehensive understanding of how plant growth regulators affect the overall growth and development of potatoes. Initial findings indicate varied responses to different PGRs, showing changes in growth patterns, root structure, and tuber traits. The study's findings will provide valuable insights into optimising PGR applications for sustainable potato cultivation, offering a scientific basis for informed decision-making among agronomists, researchers, and stakeholders in the agricultural community. This investigation aims to connect PGR applications with potato growth, with the goal of enhancing agricultural practices to increase yield and optimise resource usage.
