What are plant growth regulators (PGRs)?

Simply put, a plant growth regulator is a substance that can accelerate or retard the growth of a plant. Some growth regulators are organic, naturally occurring hormones, which are extracted from plant tissue. Others are man made and designed to copy natural plant hormones.
