From germination through senescence, the growth hormones control the growth and development of plants. Numerous plant growth regulators disrupt the natural hormonal equilibrium. The most significant class of systemic compounds created to treat fungus-related illnesses in both plants and animals are called triazoles. These triazole compounds have effects on plant growth regulation as well as fungitoxicity. Triadimefon and propiconazole, two triazoles, were found to have an impact on the Chinese potato (Solenostemon rotundifolius (Poir.) J. K. Morton), a significant tuber crop grown in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. Chinese potato leaves and tubers showed reduced electrolyte leakage due to the presence of triazole compounds. Lipid peroxidation was inhibited by triazole treatments, and this inhibition was stronger in leaves than in tubers. Propiconazole, as opposed to triadimefon, was the triazole that inhibited the lipid peroxidation the most.
