Abstract/Contents:"Growth regulators are organic compounds which are produced naturally or synthetically. They have been used in agriculture for a long time to avoid fast growth of cereals and therefore negative impact on stalk stability. Their timely applications shorten and thicken the stalks and get them more stabilized (Franke, 2007). Growth regulators also find use in turf grass maintenance, on professional sports turf growth regulators are used to reduce mowing frequency and consequential costs. Growth regulators are also described as improving root growth, plants general aspect, sward density and lead to an intensive green colouration (Lord, 2009). Most growth regulators interfere with the production and transmission of plant growth substances, which are produced by the plant itself, and inhibit the biosynthesis of gibbereline. Prohexadione-Ca, commercially known as Regalis, is a growth regulator active at the end of the gibbereline biosynthesis and is well tolerated by the plant (Sengbusch, 2003)."
