BASF - growth-regulator

General Information
CYCOCEL 750 is a plant growth regulator which is taken up mainly through the green parts of plants. The principal effect of CYCOCEL 750 is to inhibit cell elongation at the growing point of treated plants. Energy normally directed to the growing point is redirected causing modification to growth habit. Responses vary according to species, rate of use and timing. Timing is critical for optimum results.

Wheat and Oats: CYCOCEL 750 stimulates root development, reduces stem length and causes the stem wall to thicken. Also primary tiller development is slowed down and secondary tiller development stimulated.

Advantages of treatment: Improved resistance to lodging and stem break. Height reduction may vary according to cultivar treated. Improved resistance to drought. Improved resistance to Eyespot damage. More even head height, which reduces the volume of straw required to be passing through the combine at harvest. Fertiliser inputs can be aimed at optimum yield rather than limited to avoid lodging.


CYCOCEL 750 may be used on crops undersown with grasses and clovers.

Perennial Ryegrass Seed Crops: CYCOCEL 750 appeares to synchronise tiller growth and development and to increase tiller survival. Crop height is not reduced and treatment does not prevent lodging. Advantage of treatment: Improved yield of seed

Water rates may be reduced to 25-60 litres/hectare for aerial application. The addition of a suitable non-ionic surfactant is recommended, when CYCOCEL 750 is applied on its own.

CYCOCEL 750 is compatible with a wide range of insecticides, fungicides and foliar fertilisers. Mixtures with herbicides are not recommended. Where untried tank mixtures are contemplated, particularly where newer products and cultivars are involved, testing on a small scale is advised before general use. When in doubt, use CYCOCEL 750 alone. When mixing with foliar fertilisers, CYCOCEL 750 should be added to the tank first.

For optimum results, CYCOCEL 750 must be applied at the correct growth stage of the crop. Care should be taken when applying in mixtures that the time of application for CYCOCEL 750, is not compromised.

Location and movement of this product must be recorded at each stage of its lifecycle.

Do not carry more than one litre of this product on a passenger service vehicle.

Prevent further spillage and product from entering waterways. Wear overalls, gloves, footwear and goggles. Absorb spill with an inert absorbent material (e.g. vermiculite) and place in sealable container for disposal. Wash affected area with water and detergent. Absorb and collect washings and place in the same sealable container as the spilled material. Dispose of the waste safely in suitable landfill.

Personal Protection
When mixing and preparing spray, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist, a washable hat, elbow length PVC gloves, and goggles or a face shield.

General Safety and Hygiene Measures
Avoid contact with eyes and skin or inhalation of spray mist. Wash splashes of concentrate from skin immediately. Do not eat, drink or smoke while using this product. Remove protective clothing and wash hands and exposed skin thoroughly with soap and water before meals and after work. Wash protective clothing immediately after use. Store work clothing separately.

Do NOT mix or store in aluminium containers or use in aluminium equipment. Remove stock from treated areas and observe withholding periods. Apply with well-maintained and accurately calibrated equipment. Do not allow spray drift outside the target area to occur. Do not spray over, or allow drift over, an aquatic environment. Clean out application equipment thoroughly after use. Do NOT contaminate water when disposing of equipment wash waters.
