Role of auxin and gibberellins growth, yield and quality of tomato: A review
Kartik Pramanik, Jyotsnarani Pradhan and Soumya Kumar Sahoo
Increasing temperature, viral diseases and salinity are the major limiting factors in sustaining and increasing tomato productivity. To tackle the different biotic and abiotic stresses in tomato cultivation application growth regulators have been considered as right choice for scientists and farmers. Plant growth regulators (also called plant hormones) are numerous chemical substances that profoundly influence the growth and differentiation of plant cells, tissues and organs. Plant growth regulators function as chemical messengers for intercellular communication. In tomato, different growth regulators play a pivotal role in germination, root development, branching, flower initiation, fruiting, lycopene development, synchronization and early maturation, parthenocarpic fruit development, ripening, TSS, acidity, seed production etcetera. To boost the tomato production in India these versatile resources greatly help the professionals and researchers. Keeping the importance of growth regulator in tomato production in mind this review paper is scripted.
