Opening up the canopy and unlocking extra yield
Regalis® Plus provides a simple way to control the shape of apple and cherry tree canopies, letting in extra light to create more even and productive fruit development. Regalis Plus targets gibberellin production more selectively than other growth regulators, so shoot growth is controlled without any disruption of positive processes like fruiting stimulation and the development of optimal fruit size and colour. The end result is increased yields of – in many cases – higher quality fruit, with added benefits like hugely reduced pruning time and labour costs.
Regalis® Plus is a gibberellin inhibitor that selectively targets the final stage in gibberellin production which controls shoot growth. That late intervention means Regalis Plus stands out among growth regulators because it has no negative impact on the size and quality of the crop.
Alternative growth regulators such as paclobutrazol act early in the gibberellin biochemical pathways that adversely disrupts photoperiodism, fruiting stimulation, fruit colour (flavonoids and antioxidants) and fruit size as well as shoot growth development.
Regalis Plus contains built-in water buffers and acidifying agents that activate the product during tank-mixing. Maximum activity is achieved when the spray solution is pH <5.
