  • More light and air penetrates the canopy and reaches the lower branches of cotton
  • More uniform ball size
  • Less ball rot
  • Treatments with crop protection products become easier and more efficient with better spray coverage

Information on crops and pests

Pests Recommended rate Time of application Number of application
Plant growth regulator (Cotton growth) (see APPLICATION TABLE). Apply Pix® only on healthy, actively growing cotton that is not under any stress during application and is not expected to come under any stress shortly after application.First application: Apply the first Pix® application during the early flower bud stage. Use the lower rate in the stage where the first flower buds appear and when the plant height is smaller than 20 cm. Higher rates must be used, when the plants are higher than 20 cm and when the application takes place one weeklater.Follow-up treatment: Repeat with intervals of about two weeks, with a minimum of seven days and a maximum of 18 days, depending on the growth rate of the crop. It is recommended to use shorter intervals and / or higher dosage rates of Pix® in cases where a high growth rate occurs or is expected. Longer intervals should be compensated with higher rates. Excessive growth normally occurs under high rainfall and high temperature conditions, on very fertile soils and / or where high levels of nitrogen fertilisation have been supplied.Final treatment: The final Pix® treatment should be applied at the end of the effective flowering period and it is recommended to use a higher dosage rate for this treatment, in order to eliminate further vegetative growth of the crop 3
