Author(s): Kartik Pramanik, Shubhashree Priyadarshinee Das, Licon Kumar Acharya and Debasis Jayapuria

Abstract: Plant growth regulators (also called plant hormones) are numerous chemical substances that profoundly influence the growth and differentiation of plant cells, tissues and organs. Plant growth regulators function as chemical messengers for intercellular communication. In tomato, different growth regulators play a pivotal role in germination, root development, branching, flower initiation, fruiting, lycopene development, synchronization and early maturation, parthenocarpic fruit development, ripening, TSS, acidity, seed production etcetera. To boost the tomato production in India these versatile resources greatly help the professionals and researchers. By keeping the importance of growth regulator in tomato production this review paper is scripted.
