ikasu®

It’s a plant growth regulator that works accelerating the enzymes that promote flowering and setting of fruits, as on the processes of accumulation of lignin and auxins in the flower and fruits just set.

It promotes the generation of auxins, pollination and cytoplasmatic streaming, increasing them in around a 15 % mean.

Promotes a plant resistance against diseases, by increasing the production of lignin in the cell walls. Also, it accelerates the curative effects of many fungicides with which it has synergistic effects, while advancing the recovering of plants from the stresses caused by these type of treatments.

Registered in ROPMF with No. 22987​

It is based on the mixture of three synthetic nitrophenols, with a powerful effect on enzymatic acceleration, while potentiating cytoplasmatic streaming.

Nitrophenols are naturally occurring compounds in tiny proportions in plant living cells.

Composition

p-Nitrofenolato sódico                         0,3 % w/v

Sodium o-nitrophenolate                     0,2 % w/v

Sodium 5-nitroguaiacolate                   0,1 % w/v

Effect on hormonal regulation

Effect on hormonal regulation

 

· Increase in natural auxin production and in number of receptors for those auxins.

· Extends auxins stability by preventing its oxidation, thus extending its activity and enhancing its accumulation in tissues.

Effect on cytoplasmatic streaming

Effect on cytoplasmatic streaming

 

· Increase in nutrient, protein and organelle transportation inside plant cells, estimated in around 15%.

· Enhances size and thickness of the fruit pericarp.

Effect on pollination and setting

Effect on pollination and setting

 

· Greater and faster growth of the pollen tube and increased activity of stigma cells.

· Better and faster pollination and setting.

· Greater amount of set fruits.

· Avoids early fruit loss and/or flower abortion.

Effect on the thickness of the cell wall

Effect on the thickness of the cell wall

 

· Active ingredients of ikasu® promote a plant resistance against diseases by increasing the production of lignin in the cell walls, providing cells more resistance to fungus infections (Manitto 1981, Stutte 1990, Haga, et al, 1990)

· In tank-mix it potentiates and accelerates the effect of fungicides.

· Minimizes the biotic stress effects produced by diseases and fungicidal treatments in plants.
