PGR Receives Lower REI for 2020
Fine Americas has announced a 50% reduction in the Dazide plant growth regulator’s re-entry interval (REI) — 12 hours instead of 24.
The new Dazide has been reformulated so that it can be rewet — providing a new level of flexibility for growers. It works better in adverse conditions and can be rewet within 36 hours of the initial application to reactivate any of the active ingredient remaining on leaves.
Just a light mist to moisten the leaf slightly ensures growers get every bit of power out of their daminozide. This may seem like a small reformulation, but for growers fighting to accomplish more with less, facing ever-tightening labor and schedule constraints, it provides new opportunities for productivity.
“This marks a huge gain in efficiency — something to take into account when deciding which daminozide PGR to preorder ahead of the 2020 season,” says Greg Johnson, president, Fine Americas, Inc., “It’s like gaining an extra day of productivity each time you treat.”
