STILITS GROWTH REGULATORS
PURPOSE
To stimulate growth of plants, increase harvest, improve harvest quality.

CHARACTERISTICS
Stilits are pulverulent water-soluble preparations. Their chemical structure is similar to that of the natural growth regulators. Stilits are derivatives of amino acids.

APPLICATION
  • by encrusting (0.5 g/kg of seeds)
  • by spraying the sprouts (0.5 g/l solution)

EFFECT
After sugar-beet seeds are encrusted with STILITS, harvest of root-crops increases in average by 3-6 t/ha or 8-15%, saccharinity rises by 0.4-1.4 t/ha (9-20% in comparison with the control unit).
After sugar-beet sprouts are sprayed with the STILITS solution, harvest increases by 8-10 t/ha (10-14%), saccharinity rises by 0.5-1.3% and biological amount of sugar is higher by 1.5-2.9 t/ha in comparison with the control unit.

THE LEVEL OF TECHNOLOGY COMPLETION
Final stage, manufacturing.

POSSIBLE CO-OPERATION
Search for partners and foreign markets.
