Uniconazole is a broad-spectrum, efficient plant growth regulator with both bactericidal and herbicidal effects, and is a gibberellin synthesis inhibitor. It has the functions of controlling vegetative growth, inhibiting cell elongation, shortening internodes, dwarfing plants, promoting lateral bud growth and flower bud formation, and enhancing stress resistance.
Its activity is 6-10 times higher than that of paclobutrazol, but its residual amount in the soil is only 1/10 of paclobutrazol, so it has little effect on subsequent crops, and it can be absorbed through seeds, roots, buds, and leaves, and reciprocate between organs .
It is suitable for rice and wheat to increase tillering, control plant height and improve lodging resistance.
Uniconazole can be absorbed through the roots, stems, leaves, and seeds of plants, and then transmitted to the meristems of various parts through the xylem. The mechanism of action is the same as paclobutrazol, and it is an inhibitor of gibberellic acid biosynthesis.
The main physiological function is to inhibit cell elongation, shorten internodes, promote tillering, inhibit plant height, change the distribution direction of photosynthetic products, and promote flower bud differentiation and fruit growth. It can also increase the waxiness of the leaf epidermis, promote the closure of stomata, and improve stress resistance.
Precautions For Use
Uniconazole has certain toxicity, avoid mixing with food, seeds, and feed. It has a strong medicinal effect and should be used in strict accordance with the instructions after experimenting first, but some crops are not suitable for use at the seedling stage. Store in a cool, dry place.
