HIGROW (Plant Growth Regulators)
Plant growth regulators (PGR s) are molecules that influence the development of plants and are generally active at very low concentrations. There are natural regulators, which are produced by the plant itself, and also synthetic regulators; those found naturally in plants are called phytohormones or plant hormones. Plant growth regulators function as chemical messengers for intercellular communication . There are currently five recognized groups of plant hormones: auxins, gibberellins, cytokinins, abscisic acid (ABA) and ethylene. They work together coordinating the growth and development of cells. Ethylene is mainly involved in abscission and flower secscence in plants and is rarely used in plant tissue culture.
Ethephon is the most widely used plant growth regulator.Upon metabolism by the plant, it is converted into ethylene, a potent regulator of plant growth and ripeness. The main function of Ethephon is on fruit maturation and the senescence of leaves and flowers. In species with climacteric fruit, maturation is induced by an increase in this hormone. It is also responsible for the change in colour of some non-climacteric fruits (that is, fruit whose maturation is not affected by ethylene), as occurs in citrus fruit. Ethylene is used to mature fruit that has been collected prematurely. It is applied by burning in closed chambers or with ethephon, a product which decomposes into ethylene when hydrolysed in the plant.
Ethephon often used on wheat, coffee, tobacco, cotton, and rice in order to help the plant’s fruit reach ripeness more quickly. Cotton is the most important single crop use for ethephon. It initiates fruiting over a period of several weeks, promotes early concentrated boll opening, and enhances defoliation to facilitate and improve efficiency of scheduled harvesting. Harvested cotton quality is improved. Ethephon also is widely used by pineapple growers to initiate reproductive development (force) of pineapple. It is also sprayed on mature-green pineapple fruits to degreen them to meet produce marketing requirements. There can be some detrimental effect on fruit quality.
HPM Chemicals And Fertilizers Ltd. is one such agriculture company helping farmers worldwide for providing the best solutions for better farming. We are also the Ethephon 39% SL manufacturers in India. The company also involved in supply and export of Ethephon 39% SL worldwide. We are offering many plant growth regulators that can improve the physiological efficiency of the crop, enhance taste and quality of fruits, promote seed germination point leading to breaking of seed dormancy and increase stem length in flowers grown for export. HIGROW (Ethephon 39% SL) is a prominent Plant growth regulator that enlarges the fruit size.
This is used for Inducing flowering, Enlarging Fruit size, Increasing the yield out of the crop and Inducing the ripening in the fruits of Mango, Pineapple, Tomato, Coffee, Rubber. This is a PGR with effective Hormone actions and defoliants; ethylene releases. Ethrel is a plant hormone for inducing flowering. It is used for inducing ripening. It enlarges the fruit size. It increases the yield of the crop.
Although many environmental groups worry about toxicity resulting from use of growth hormones and fertilizers, the toxicity of Ethephon 39% SL is actually very .
