The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has proposed to grant full registration for the sale and use of AMV-1018 Technical and AMV-1018 (98% Liquid Concentrate) for use on potatoes in storage to control sprouting once the dormancy period has ended. The Agency has opened the public comments until May 3, 2014.

3-decen-2-one is a plant growth regulator (PGR)that belongs to the chemical family of the alpha-beta unsaturated aliphatic ketones. AMV-1018 (98% Liquid Concentrate), containing 98% 3-decen-2-one, is applied as an aerosol to potatoes in storage once there is evidence of sprouting. While the mode of action is not fully understood, 3-decen-2-one acts to damage or destroy the meristematic tissue of sprouts and actively growing terminal and axillary buds.
