Key Market Trends

Aiding the Increase in Crop Profitability

Plant growth regulators have become popular across the region, as they aid in increased crop yields and better management of the crop. The application of plant growth regulators in the removal of excessive number of young fruits from pear trees is a common practice in orchard management, which must be done within 30 days of blooming. Thus, the availability of labor should align with this practice. Due to decreased labor force, plant growth regulators reduced the total biological yield but increased the portion of marketable yield and fruit size, thus, reducing the unmarketable produce. Additionally, it helped ease the use of mechanical harvesters, making harvesting easier and reducing the cost of human labor. This, in turn, has boosted the profitability of the crops, as more of the produce becomes marketable. Thus, the application of plant growth regulators yielded considerable success in the processes of plant development, such as flowering and fruit development, as well as ripening, harvesting, and post-harvesting of fruits and vegetables. Thus, plant growth regulators are aiding in the increase of crop production, further boosting the crop profitability.​
