Always comply with the safety instructions provided in our safety data sheet!

Effect

Sitofex® works similarly to cytokinins, which occur naturally in plants, but Sitofex® is substantially more effective. A few grams of the active substance per hectare are sufficient to achieve the desired results.

Sitofex® stimulates cell division and cell elongation and therefore induces an increase of the cell number and cell wall thickness. Under normal conditions fruit quality and shelf life are also improved.

Sitofex® is the perfect tool to manage fruit size and quality.

Crops

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.

Sitofex® stimulates cell division and cell elongation in the berry tissue and favorably affects the growth of the whole bunch. Consequently the obtained yield is higher.

Berry weight, as well as the polar and equatorial diameter is increased, however it is important to note that the original characteristics of the variety remain unchanged, e.g. bunch and berry shape, sugar content, acidity, pH and color.

Sitofex® also increases the cell wall thickness. As a consequence, the berry texture and consequently the shelf life are also improved.

Thinning is recommended in order to avoid too compact bunches due to bigger berries. Do not apply Sitofex® before end of natural thinning.

The optimal Sitofex® rate and application time depends on the variety and other factors that may change depending on the local conditions. Please follow the instructions for use on the label and contact your local distributor to find the best application rate in your area.

Please also consider that on some varieties high Sitofex® rates may occasionally cause delays in ripening and fruit coloration.
