Sumi Blue Diamond is a plant growth regulator (PGR) that is used to improve the growth and yield of paddy crops. It is a unique and powerful PGR that has been developed by Valent Bioscience, a US-based subsidiary of Sumitomo Chemical.
Sumi Blue Diamond works by stimulating the production of gibberellic acid, a natural plant hormone that promotes cell division and elongation. This leads to increased tillering, plant height, and grain size. Sumi Blue Diamond also helps to improve the resistance of paddy crops to stress conditions such as drought and flooding.
The active ingredient in Sumi Blue Diamond is gibberellic acid, a natural plant hormone that promotes cell division and elongation. It is a liquid formulation with a concentration of 0.1% gibberellic acid.
Benefits of using Sumi Blue Diamond:
- Increased tillering and plant height
- Improved grain size and yield
- Increased resistance to stress conditions
- Ease of application
- Safe for use in organic farming
How to use Sumi Blue Diamond:
