Molecular Formula: C12H10ClN3O
Growers find too small and irregular sized fruits during harvest. In order to solve this problem, forchlorfenuron contained plant growth regulator is applied.
Forchorfenuron improves the fruit size and quality in various fruit crops, especially table grapes and kiwifruit.
Forchorfenuron containing plant growth regulator allows the fruit grower to increase the fruit size and consequently the production, preserving all the quality characteristics, such as the original shape of the fruit typically like kiwifruit, grape, the organoleptic features and the dry matter content.
Therefore the obtained yield is higher, together with fruits of bigger, regular size and with the best quality.
Forchorfenuron is known as plant growth regulator, forchorfenuron can be absorbed by leaves, stem, cotyledon and germinated seeds, and It promotes cell division, differentiation and development; induces budding of callus, and controls apical dominance.
Forchorfenuron breaks dormancy of lateral buds and promotes germination; Forchorfenuron delays ageing process and maintains chlorophyll in excised leaves; Forchorfenuron regulates the transport of nutrients and promotes fruit formation, etc.
Forchorfenuron is used to increase the size of kiwifruit, table grapes and peaches; promote fruit set in melons, pumpkins and cucumbers; promote branching in apples; increase yield in potatoes, rice and wheat. Applied at 1-1000 ppm, depending on crop.
