A nationwide fact-finding survey was conducted to provide basic information for establishing the rational plant growth regulator scheme. The most popular plant growth regulators on farms were gibberellins, followed by tomatoton. Gibberellins were commonly used for fruit thickening in watermelon and squash, and tomatoton for fertilization and fruiting in tomato and watermelon. The growth regulators are chosen through the farmers' experience.
