Mepiquat chloride for cotton

Mepiquat chloride and mepiquat pentaborate both contain mepiquat which is an anti-gibberellin growth retardant that reduces plant cell enlargement to help balance vegetative and reproductive growth.

When applied to cotton, it can help control rank growth by reducing stem elongation at newly formed internodes.

The application of PGRs can help increase fruit retention and promote earlier maturity, reducing the crop’s risk of late-season insect damage, boll rots, and harvest losses.

Mepiquat applications have been linked to increased cotton yield potential when applied at the optimum rate and timing for the variety and field planted.
