Sumitomo JIKA (Paclobutrazol 23% WW)
Technical content : Sumitomo Jika contains Paclobutrazol 23% WW
Sumitomo Jika contains paclobutrazol, a phytoregulator, which acts inhibiting the synthesis of gibberellins, producing a decrease in vegetative growth. The benefit from the use of Jika manifests itself in a balanced foliage and in the reduction of vegetative growth and pruning. Eventually, effects on fruit quality (color, size, maturation and yield) can also be observed. In the cultivation of the mango, along with good cultural practices, the use of jika can advance and stimulate the flowering. The absorption of jika applied to the soil (more efficient) is done through the roots, being transported by the xylem to the points of vegetative growth.
