There are several variables that will come into play as you determine the ideal rate for each application.Temperature growers in warmer climates will need to use higher rates and/or more applications compared to those in cooler climates. Also, the
time of year is a factor, as well.
Cultural practices, size of pots, fertilizer levels, and organic content of growing media may affect rates needed.
Different varieties or cultivars varying growth characteristics will need to be considered when applying to each variety/cultivar.
Because these variables need to be considered on a situational basis, it is essential that you conduct trials on a small number of plants, before you apply Bonzi to a large number of plants. For these trials, consult the product label for recommended rates for specific plants that are to be treated, and conduct initial trials using the lowest recommended rates.
Mode of Action
A distinctive quality feature of Bonzi is that it has multiple sites of uptake. While a small amount may be taken through leaves, it is primarily absorbed through the stems and roots, where it is then dispersed through the xylem. It then moves to the terminals, inhibiting gibberelin biosynthesis and thereby reducing internode stretch.
The shortening of these internodes is the result of smaller, more compact cells. This in turn results in more compact growth.
