This presentation will help consultants, county agents, growers, and other practitioners in the Southern U.S. cotton-producing states to understand more about plant growth regulators, which are widely used in cotton production. Specifically in this presentation, practitioners will learn: how plant growth regulators modify plant growth; why growth regulators are used; and how to identify plant growth characteristics or situations in which growth regulator applications may be needed or not needed. By the end of this presentation, the practitioner should know more about general use of plant growth regulators and how to utilize them to achieve optimal cotton yields.
