Use Information

MEP 6X is a water-based foliar applied plant regulator that modifies the Cotton plant in several beneficial ways. It allows the grower to manage the Cotton plant for short-season production leading to reduced risk of yield and quality loss due to delayed and prolonged harvest. Additional benefits derived from the use of this product include:• Height reduction and more canopy• Increased early boll retention and/or larger bolls• Less boll rot• Improved defoliation• Reduced trash and lower ginning costs• Better harvest efficiency• Darker green leaf colorThese benefits can provide for earlier maturity and often result in improved yields.
