Product name: Paclobutrazol
CAS: [76738-62-0] stated stereoisomers
Molecular Formula: C15H20ClN3O
The post- harvest application of a small amount of Paclobutrazol to the soil significantly promotes flowering and fruiting in the following year. Trials have shown the following benefits from the treatment:
----A significant increase in flowering leading to increased yields.
----The early flowering considerably enhanced fruit maturity. Treated trees flowered three to four weeks early, which reduced the time to fruit maturity by at least two weeks.
----Visually, the fruit developed a better external colour.
Mechanism of action
Plant growth regulator taken up into the xylem through the leaves, stems, or roots, and translocated to growing sub-apical meristems. Produces more compact plants and enhances flowering and fruiting.
Used on fruit trees to inhibit vegetative growth and to improve fruit set; on pot grown ornamentals and flower crops (e.g. chrysanthemums, begonias, freesias, poinsettias and bulbs) to inhibit growth; on rice to increase dllering, reduce lodging, and increase yield: on turf to retard growth; and on grass seed crops to reduce height and prevent lodging. To be applied as a foliar spray, as a soil drench, or by trunk injection. Has some fungicidal activity against mildew and rusts.
