Product Information

PLUCKER-PLUS is a plant growth regulator with a carefully balanced combination of active ingredients and wetting agents (surfactants) to be used for the control of sucker growth on Burley, Flue-cured and Dark tobacco. The concentrated product is diluted with water to form a creamy emulsion which is applied as a coarse spray. The emulsion is effective when it comes in direct contact with suckers; therefore, the material should be applied so that maximum contact is made with all Tobacco suckers. This product can be used alone or with Maleic hydrazide (MH) such as Super Sucker-Stuff®, Sucker-Stuff® and Sucker-Stuff® 80EG in a dual treatment program.
