Regalis®

Plant Growth Regulator

Regalis® controls shoot growth for maximum light penetration, higher yield and top quality fruit.

Benefits

Regalis® also reduces ethylene formation. Lowered levels of ethylene often reduce the falling of young fruits and lead to a delay in aging processes. With this product the natural resistance will increase against diseases.

Regalis® controls shoot growth for maximum light penetration, higher yield and top quality fruit.

For a producer, it’s all about return on investment! Regalis® by BASF is a growth regulator that controls shoot growth to make more energy available to your apple trees for better fruit production.

If you want to be proud, not only of the yield from the carefully grown trees on your farm, but also of the eye-catching attractiveness and high quality of your fruits, Regalis®can help you.

Benefits of Regalis®

Less summer and winter pruning:

  • Reduction in shoot growth with a 30% – 80% shortening of shoot length.
  • Intensity of summer and winter pruning are reduced noticeably, resulting you saving on labour costs.

Improved fruit colour:

  • Beter light penetration in Regalis® treated trees.
  • Fruit carried in the inner parts of the canopy have better colour.
  • More fruit of better quality can be harvested.

Spray friendly tree:

  • Internodes are shortened without loss of leaves.
  • Less shadowing of inner parts of the tree.
  • Pesticides can thus be applied more efficiently.

Tree structure:

  • Tree shape can be manipulated with targeted applications.
  • Excessive shoot growth in certain parts of the tree is inhibited.
  • Reduced tree volume promotes faster dying after rainfall.
  • Reduced risk of sunburn damage on fruit.

Better fruit set and yield:

  • More energy available for fruit development.
  • Less small fruit dropped.
  • Increased fruit set result in higher yield.
  • Less vegetative growth provides more calcium for developing fruit which reduces the risk of bitter pit, scald and other fruit diseases.
  • Less problems with alternate bearing.
