co, tomatoes, walnuts, wheat, etc. Ethephon's mode of action acts via liberation of ethylene, which
is absorbed by the plant and interferes in the growth process. It is also used in the acceleration of
ripening of fruits and vegetables.
Ethephon comes in RTU (ready-to-use), emulsifiable concentrate and aqueous solution formulatio
ns. It may also be used in combination with Terpal (with mepiquat-chloride) and Terpal C (chlorme

Plant growth regulator
Appearance : White or light yellow crystals.
Melting Point: 74 - 75°C .
Vapour Pressure: <1mPa at 20°C.
Stability: Solvency in water, acohol is about 1kg/L. It's steady below PH 3 and it releases ethylene when above PH 3.It can be eluviated when placed on sand. It can't coexist with alkali, salts and mental.
Mode of Action:
Plant growth regulator with systemic properties. Penetrates into the plant tissues, and is decomposed to ethylene, which affects the growth processes.
