Plant Growth Regulators (PGRs) offer growers powerful tools to optimize their harvest. Hydro Experts offers a wide selection of high-quality PGRs to help meet your growing needs. PGRs, like paclobutrazol and other growth inhibitors, help regulate the growth rate of crops by modifying plant metabolism. They can help limit excessive vegetative growth, thereby promoting more flowers and fruiting.
Our popular PGRs include Nulife Technologies' Full Bloom Enhancer and Cyco UpSize. Full Bloom Enhancer contains ancymidol to help maximize flowering and fruit set in plants like tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. Cyco UpSize, which contains paclobutrazol, is formulated to increase fruit size and weight on crops like strawberries, grapes and citrus.
Using PGRs like those offered from Nulife Technologies can have several benefits for growers. They help control crop height and spread, making harvest and pest management easier. They promote earlier fruit ripening and improve crop quality by increasing fruit firmness and color. PGR-treated crops often have higher yields as well.
At Hydro Experts, we aim to provide hydroponics growers and crop farmers with the highest-quality plant growth regulators and plant nutrients to optimize harvests. Contact our plant science experts today to discuss which PGR is right for your operation. We offer customized recommendations and application guidance to help you get the most from your next crop.
Q: What are the effects of Paclobutrazol on indoor plants?
A: Paclobutrazol retards plant growth, leading to shorter internodes, stouter stems, less stretch, and a quicker onset of flowering. It makes plants more resistant to drought and can result in darker leaves. It is mildly irritating to eyes and skin but shows no evidence of causing cancer or birth defects.
Q: What are the benefits of using Chlormequat Chloride?
A: Chlormequat Chloride stops cell elongation, shortening the flowering stretch and redirecting energy to bud formation. This results in more compact plants with stronger branches, denser buds, and reduced maturation time for buds.
Q: What are some natural alternatives to synthetic PGRs?
A: Chitosan and Triacontanol are natural PGR alternatives. Chitosan, derived from chitin, boosts growth, photosynthesis, and nutrient uptake and is non-toxic. Triacontanol, found in beeswax, sugarcane, and alfalfa meal, enhances metabolic processes, photosynthesis, nutrient uptake, and CO2 assimilation.
