auxins 11 mg/l, cytokinins 0,03 mg/l

Formulation:

soluble concentrate

Packing:

1 l, 10 l

Mode of action:

seven types of the auxins which are a part of Kelpak WS are responsible for cell growth and extension and 12 types of cytokinins stimulate rapid cell division, which generally leads to accelerated growth of plants.

Compatibility

It can be used in tank mixtures with pesticides (except for other growth regulators).

Application features

  • It is better to apply the product at early stages of a development of culture
  • Do not apply to non-perennial crops after flowering
  • It is recommended to use concentration from 1% to 5% when the roots are soaked
  • Doze rate of a working fluid for ground spraying is 250-300 liters per hectare
  • The minimum effective dose is not less than 2 liters per hectare
  • The interval between applications must be at least 14 days
  • pH of the tank mixture must be no more than 7 (alkaline pH reduces the effectiveness of auxin and loses a part of its properties while turning into weak acid)
  • After opening, the product should be stored for 15 days at the temperature of no more than +15°C as it loses its properties when it stays open for a long time

Product’s advantages

Due to the ratio of auxin and cytokinin 350:1, foliar application of 2-3 liters per hectare accelerates the growth of the root system of the plant during the first 5-8 days after application.
A large root system means more moisture and nutrients which the plant absorbs, greater resistance to drought and adverse weather conditions and a better recovery after herbicide treatment.
After 9-14 days the increased root system stimulates synthesis of its own cytokinins which are responsible for the growth of the aerial part of the plant. Greater thickness of the stem, a larger number and size of leaves, improvement of photosynthesis and of metabolism, accelerated cell division lead in its turn to increase in yield.
