Dazide enhance

Written by Jan-Paul de Wit| Last update: 27-02-2020

Every grower strives for optimal plant growth. To help the plant a little, you can use growth regulators. Dazide Enhance is one such growth regulator that has been specially developed for floriculture. In this article we will tell you more about the effects and benefits of Dazide Enhance.

Proven effectiveness   -    The granulate form is safe and easy to use    -    No undesirable residue effects on subsequent cultivation

What's Dazide Enhance?

Dazide Enhance is a growth regulator specially developed for floricultural crops (covered cultivation). It influences the growth of the plants by inhibiting cell elongation. This results, among other things, in a more compact plant and a more even flower cover. After administration, the pesticide ensures that plants have firmer flower branches and a nice dark leaf color.

The pesticide has a granular form which has the advantage that little dust is released during the preparation of the spray solution. Dazide Enhance dissolves easily in water and gives no visible residue after application.

Operation Dazide Enhace

Dazide Enhance has as active ingredient daminozide (85%). It penetrates slowly through the wax layer but once in the leaf it has a quick effect as anti-gibberellin. Daminozide is not absorbed via the roots. After absorption, the substance daminozide inhibits cell proliferation in the green parts of the plant. Think of the stems and leaves. It is important to focus the treatment on the growth points. This is because the active substance is not transported through the entire plant and on mature leaves and stems there is no more stretching.

Benefits of Dazide Enhance

Good controllable growth regulator, does not give an extreme or long-lasting effect.
 Granulate shape is easy and safe to use
 Optimally soluble in water, gives no visible residue
 No negative effects on subsequent cultivation
 Good plant tolerance
 Flexible in use at higher concentrations

Apply Dazide Enhance

Before applying Dazide Enhance it is good to know that it must be mixed with water. When a plant is under water stress or when it is used at too high temperatures, the desired effects will be less likely to be achieved. For a good absorption of the plant, it is recommended to spray early in the morning or late in the evening. This keeps the leaves moist longer. Because Dazide Enhance is broken down in the soil, it has no unwanted growth-inhibiting effects on subsequent cultivation.
