Sitofex® is not systemic and does not translocate within the plant. For this reason a complete and uniform coverage of the fruits is essential. Apply as a fine mist and avoid droplet formation.
Sitofex® penetrates the epidermis within approx. 6 hours. Do not apply if rain is expected and avoid applying Sitofex during the hottest hours of the day.
As Sitofex® often results in a important yield increase, fertilization and irrigation should be adjusted accordingly. Generally, the product performs best in healthy and well nourished plants.
The product rate and application time may change depending on the variety and local conditions. Please follow the indications on the label and contact your local distributor to find the best application conditions and rates in your orchard.
