RAASPHON 39% & 10%

ETHEPHON is a plant growth regulator used widely on horticultural and agronomic crops, may reduce lodging and enhance yield.. Its use varies with plant species, chemical concentration, and time of application. Ethephon controls various physiological aspects of growth and development in plants. The chemical name of Ethephon is 2-Chloroethyl phosphonic acid. On spraying Ethephon liberates Ethylene a natural plant hormone. Ethephon helps in inducing of flowering and breaking alternate bearing in Mangoes, stimulates uniform ripening in Apples, Grapes, Pineapple, Bananas, Tomatoes, Coffee, Cotton, Cardamom, Paddy and in many fruits, and helps in breaking seed dormancy in Groundnut, Sun flower and other vegetable & ornamentals. Ethephon application is an important agro technology from grower’s point of view due to its multiple benefits. It is an eco-friendly chemical and has tremendous potential to augment yield and productivity.


APPLICATIONS

  • RUBBER ( ETHEPHON 10% SL )

    For stimulating latex flow in Rubber, without affecting economic life of the trees. Scrap the bark about five centimeters below the tapping groove and apply Ethephon with a painting brush. Application during heavy rain should be avoided. Four applications in a year during the month of March, August, September & November.

  • Mango ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    For inducing flowering and breaking alternate bearing use Ethephon 200 ppm solution. Spray the trees Four times at fortnightly intervals, first application late September or early October.

  • APPLES ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    To promote flower initiation on young, non-bearing tree, spray 500 ppm Ethephon solutions 2-4 weeks after full bloom period. To hasten ripening and improves colour and taste, spray 750 ppm solution. 10 days before harvest.

  • BANANA ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    Harvested bunches of banana can be dipped in 500 ppm solutions for few minutes for getting proper ripening and good taste.

  • PINEAPPLES ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    Flower Induction Pour 40 ml 200 ppm Ethephon solution directly into the heart of the plant with a cup. The best time for application is when they have 30 to 37 leaves. For hasten ripening spray 200 ppm Ethephon solution on plants and fruits 1 to 2 weeks before anticipated time of harvest.

  • CITRUS ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    Post harvest treatment with 500 ppm Ethephon solution helps in removing green colour from the citrus fruits ( 10 days before the harvest )

  • POTATO ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    Potato crop can be sprayed with 500 ppm 10 to 15 days before harvest to help the desiccation Of aerial vegetative parts to make harvesting of potatoes easier.

  • PADDY ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    Lodging is a common phenomenon in paddy, especially in tall varieties by which large quantity of the produce is lost either in water or on the ground of the paddy fields and also makes it difficult for harvesting. This can be prevented by treating paddy crops with two sprays with 250 ppm Ethephon solution, the first spray four weeks after transplantation and the second before flag leaf stage.

  • COFFEE ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    To get uniform ripening of berries.
    1. Robusta – Spray 100 ppm sl 10-15 % berries are ripe
    2. Arabica - Spray 200 ppm sl 10-15 % berries are ripe.

  • GRAPES ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    Ethephon helps in flower bud differentiation of grapes. Spray Ethephon 400 ppm. Solution 45 days after pruning. The second application using the same concentration of Ethephon may be made a week after the first application. To induce new flush, spray Ethephon 250 ppm. directing the spray on the frame immediately after pruning. For uniform ripening of grapes, spray 400 to 500 ppm. Ethephon sl 25 days before the harvest. This treatment makes grapes sweeter with the increase in total soluble solids.

  • PAPAYA ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    Spray 100 -200 ppm sl 3 times at 15 days interval on fertilized flowers to increase the latex yield of Papain.

  • SUNFLOWER ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    Soak the seeds in 100 ppm sl for few minutes before sowing, breaks seed dormancy and improves germination.

  • CUCURBITS & WATER MELON ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    Spray 100 ppm sl at the stage of 4-5 leaves, increase the number female flowers.

  • SUGARCANE ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    To accelerate early and uniform ripening and to increase the sucrose content of sugarcane spray Etephon 500 ppm. 10-12 weeks before the anticipated time of harvest. The spray should be directed on the leaf canopy with a pressure sprayer. Good growth of crop after spraying appears to be necessary for a response to be obtained. The first ripening effect of Ethephon is usually detected about 4 weeks after spraying and this can be delayed by 2 to 4 weeks when there is water stress. The optimum time for harvest would be between 6 to 12 weeks after spraying. This treatment can also help in preventing flowering. Sugarcane setts dipped in Ethephon 250 ppm solution for 5 minutes, before planting stimulates uniform germination of setts. To improve tillering spray 250 ppm after 2 and half month old crop with Ethephon.

  • TOMATO ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    To accelerate early and uniform ripening with colour development spray 500 ppm sl before 12-15 days before harvest.

  • CHILLIES ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    To get uniform ripening and good colour in chillies spray 250 ppm when 10 % green chillies start changing its colour to red.

  • PLUM ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    For ripening spray 400 ppm sl 2 to 3 weeks before the anticipated time of harvest.

  • GROUND NUT ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    To break seed dormancy and improves germination, soak the seeds in 100 ppm sl for few minutes before sowing.

  • LAWN GRASSES ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    Ethephon 200 ppm sl on lawn grasses reduce number of moving considerably and helps to have thick and short turf.

  • COTTON ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    Large number of bolls in cotton remain unopened due to fall in atmospheric temperature particularly in late maturing varieties as well as late sown crop. This causes loss in cotton production. Ethephon helps in uniform boll opening and increase cotton yield. The cotton bolls are collected from the pants and soaked in 500 ppm for 45 minutes.

  • TABACCO ( ETHEPHON 39% SL )

    For hastening the leaf maturity spray 1000 – 2000 ppm. Ethephon solution. It helps in good colour development and thereby reduce the curing time. Within 2 -3 days after the application of Ethephon the leaves will be ready for harvesting by which yellowing time is considerably reduced. This treatment is excellent for the crop meant for Flue Cured Tobacco. By using Ethephon, harvesting can be planned depending on the market demand and curing facility. For hardening of seeding, before transplanting give a dip in a solution of 100 ppm.
