The present research study deals with application activity, physiological impacts, and observations interaction between new world Plant Growth Regulators PGRs like amino acids, sea weed extracts, humic acids and Plant Physiology of Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) Practically it has proved that use of PGRs in the Pomegranate fields found helpful improve resistance against air borne/soil borne pathogens/diseases and improve crop yield.

Agriculture practices like pesticide, chemical fertilizer applications consequences of variety pollutions. It’s time to emerge, evolve and establish organic farming methods in Agriculture to make sure we've started journey towards saving our planet from pollution and conveying clean environment future generations.

Present study was carried out during various seasons of 2021-2022 and all observations were noted during flowering to harvesting periods. Matter in this paper is defining the importance of soil and foliar applications of PGRs like Amino acids, Humic acid on Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) fa-Punicaceae. Such study is vital to understand application PGRs to higher plants and their positive effects on plant physiology.

Also this is useful for increasing awareness towards better agriculture and useful to open new window explaining, exploring Aerobiology, Soil biology-Soil carbon for sustainable organic farming.
