Azimi et al [1] indicated that application of bioregulators: amino acid and salicylic acid reduced negative effects of water deficit and increased yield and yield components of wheat.
Treatments were distributed in a factorial scheme 2 x 2, the first factor is the seed treatment (with and without the bioregulator Stimulate[R]) and the second one is the level of vigor (high and medium vigor).
Putrescine (PUT), spermine (SPM), and spermidine (SPD) are considered to be bioregulators of numerous cell functions, being involved in the process of cell growth, division, and differentiation.

Among these characteristics, the use of bioregulators stands out, as they may be applied to seeds, plants and soil in order to cause morphological and physiological changes seeking to increase yield and quality of seeds (Dourado Neto et al., 2014) and/or fiber.

These bioregulators, collectively named endocannabinoids (eCBs), are amides, esters, and ethers of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid and have been detected in most reproductive tissues and fluids [1-3].Besides ligands, a wide range of receptors, biosynthetic and hydrolyzing enzymes, and putative membrane transporters (EMT) all together form the endocannabinoid system (ECS) (Figure 1), a master system that is deeply involved in the central and local control of male and female reproduction.
