Mequalan 750 SL

It is used to strengthen the stem of cereals and oilseed rape and as a growth regulator.

Active ingredient:

chlormequat chloride, 750 g/l

Formulation:

soluble concentrate

Packing:

10 l

Mode of action:

active ingredient penetrates into the plant mainly through the leaves and the roots, causes reduction of growth of plants in height and increases diameter of a stalk, strengthening its hardness. As a result, the plants become more resistant to lodging, the risk of penetration of pathogens of rot into the root neck of a plant decreases.

Field of usage

Crop Dose rate, l/ha Terms of application
Winter wheat 1.0–1.5* From the beginning of tillering to the booting stage(phases 21-31, it is better 25): grades with a tendency to lodging from low to medium
Winter wheat 1.5–2.0* Varieties with a tendency to lodging from medium to high
Spring wheat 1.0 From the beginning to the end of tillering (phases 21-29)
Barley 0.75–2.0* From the beginning of tillering to the beginning of booting stage
Winter rape 1.0 In autumn: 2-3–leaf stage
Winter rape 1.5–2.0 In autumn: 3-4– leaf stage

* With a high background of mineral nutrition, best results are achieved when the distribution rate of 1,5 liters per hectare is divided into two times of 0,75 liters per hectare, the first time is in the phase of tillering and the second time is not later than one week before the booting stage.

Compatibility

Mequalan 750 SL can be used in tank mixtures with most pesticides. However, in each separate case, a preliminary assessment of the compatibility of components in the tank mixture should be made.

in combination with a growth-type herbicide (2,4-D, MCPA, etc.), it is necessary to reduce the rate of growth regulator consumption by 10-15%.

Product’s advantages

inhibits the growth of stalk in height, gives it strength, and prevents lodging by reducing the distance between the internodes and thickening of the walls;

increases winter hardiness of winter rape;

reduces the risk of penetration of pathogens of rot into the root neck of a plant;

promotes uniformity of ripening of grain and harvest.
