"Piccolo® 10 XC is an exciting new PGR formulation for Canadian growers," said Jim Scruggs, technical service manager, Fine Americas. "Since Piccolo®10 XC is a true solution, there's no need to shake the product before mixing. It mixes quickly and evenly in the growers spray tank, providing growers more consistent results due to the uniform distribution of the active ingredient within the spray mixture."
Piccolo® 10 XC offers the proven efficacy of Piccolo® and Bonzi® in a more concentrated advanced formulation.
In addition, Piccolo® 10 XC is 10 times more concentrated than traditional paclo products in the ornamental market.
"One litre of Piccolo® 10 XC equals 10 litres of traditional paclo products, requiring less handling and less storage space," Scruggs added. "It also means less work fatigue for greenhouse staff since workers handle 1-litre bottles vs. large, heavy 10-litre plastic jugs."
Piccolo® 10 XC is labeled for spray or drench applications for bedding plants, bedding plant plugs, herbaceous perennials, pot sunflowers, penstemon, geraniums, poinsettias and pot chrysanthemums. Growers should always read and follow label directions before using Piccolo® 10 XC or any plant growth regulator.
"Piccolo® 10 XC has been registered in the U.S. since 2011, where it quickly became the industry standard for paclobutrazol PGRs - a clear indication that growers appreciate its performance, convenience and overall value," said Greg Johnson, president, Fine Americas. "We are excited to provide this advanced Piccolo® 10 XC formulation to Canadian growers."
Piccolo® 10 XC is available through Kam's Growers Supply Inc., in Guelph, Ontario.
