Six compounds (IBA, chlorogenic acid, cytokinine, GA3, alar B-9 and maleic hydrazide) belonging to four different categories of plant growth hormones were used to study their effect on carbohydrate content in L. erysimi. The second instar nymphs (48 hr old) were given both dipping and leaf surface treatment with 1024 ppm concentration of compounds for two time intervals i.e. 48 and 96 hr. The carbohydrate content decreased after treatment with 4 of the plant growth regulators i.e. GA3, alar B-9, IBA and chlorogenic acid with maximum suppression in GA3 treatment. Cytokinine did not induce any derogatory influence on carbohydrate content. The treatment with maleic hydrazide, on the other hand enhanced the carbohydrate content. It could be concluded that the application of these PGRs affected the carbohydrate synthesis or metabolism.
