Plant hormones, auxins, gibberellins, HPLC, GC-MS


Plant hormones are major growth regulating hormones (auxins, the gibberellins (GAs), the cytokinins) which are easily available in plant and some plant hormones are also worked as a growth inhibitor such as ethylene, abscisic acid (ABA). These hormones showed an effective result in plant growth, flowering, fruiting, aging, senescence, color enhancement of fruits, prevention or promotion of stem elongation, leafing, leaf fall, shoot, root. These plant hormones are misused for an increase in fruit production, fruit ripening, improving fruit quality traits and overall crop improvement. Therefore, there is a need to check the overdoses of these hormones in fresh and processed food products as there higher doses result in several disorders in humans. There limit of use should be specified and there is a need to develop specific analysis methods to detect their limit in agriculture and food products.
