Plant Growth Regulator Abstracts

Plant Growth Regulator Abstracts

"Plant Growth Regulator Abstracts brings you the latest information on the role of chemicals, including gibberellins, auxins, cytokinins, ethylene and various other growth stimulators and inhibitors, in the regulation of plant growth and development."

Plant Growth Regulator Abstracts is a fully searchable abstracts database of internationally published research.

Plant Growth Regulator Abstractsis a fully searchable abstracts database of internationally published research. It brings you the latest information on the role of chemicals, including gibberellins, auxins, cytokinins, ethylene and various other growth stimulators and inhibitors, in the regulation of plant growth and development.

Derived from CAB Abstracts, the original applied life sciences database, coverage includes the use of growth regulators in plant propagation and crop management, and their involvement in physiological processes.

Each week, Plant Growth Regulator Abstracts delivers all the new highly-targeted, searchable summaries covering key English and foreign language journal articles, reports, conferences and books about plant growth regulators. Over 5,500 records are added to the database each year.

Plant Growth Regulator Abstracts includes a fully searchable backfile to 1975. Over 91,000 research summaries bring a wealth of current research on plant growth regulators to your fingertips!

Plant Growth Regulator Abstracts is updated weekly online, it is also available in print, delivered quarterly.

    Aspects include:

      • - control of storage decay
      - effects on shelf-life, including vase life of cut flowers
    • - physiology of fruit ripening and maturation
    • - postharvest treatments to advance or retard ripening
    • - storage physiology
    •   
Role of growth regulators in crop production

 Aspects include: 

    • - chemical defoliation
      • - dormancy breaking
      - enhancement of crop quality
    - enhancement of growth and/or yield
  • - flower induction, manipulation of flower sex
    • - growth retardation/dwarfing
    - manipulation of fruit load by fruit drop reduction or thinning of flowers or fruits
  • - parthenocarpy
  • - preharvest treatments e.g. for fruit loosening, sugarcane ripening
    • - seed production
