When the any one of the growth parameters such as growth in size or weight, increase in number of cells etc. are plotted in a graph against time a clear ‘sigmoid curve’ obtained it is also known as s curve or growth curve.  This growth curve shows three phase of growth. They are lag phase, exponential phase and stationary phase.  The rapid growth occurs during the exponential phase.
