On 29th October, Mindleader (Pilarquim
) held a product release ceremony to introduce its BIYI® product (PILAROPTIM®), which is China’s first three-part mixture plant growth regulator.
BIYI® is a broad spectrum plant growth regulator, whose active ingredients include 0.135% gibberellic acid, 0.00052% indoleacetic acid and 0.00031% 14-hydroxylated brassinosteroid, being a high-tech biological mixture in wettable powder form. The product is applicable to citrus, chili, pseudo ginseng, water melon, muskmelon, mango, honey melon, peanut, vegetable, as well as wheat, corn and rice.
BIYI® can break seed dormancy, and includes the functions of enhancement of rooting and germination, activation of cell, improvement of crop stress resistance, and increase of yield and improvement of fruit quality. Its active ingredient, indoleacetic acid, is an auxin, which regulates cell elongation and cell division to enhance rooting. Gibberellic acid enhances cell elongation, breaks seed dormancy, enhances seed germination, stimulates parthenocarpy, and improves fruit setting rates. Brassinolide plays a part in cell elongation and division, regulates distribution of nutrients inside plants, enhances photosynthesis, prolongs leaf senescence, improves pollen-based fertilization, increases fruit setting rates, enhances stress resistance and mitigates the damages caused by adverse environments.

It is reported that plant growth regulators account for 5% of the pesticide market worldwide, though less than 3% in China, and it is growing at a rate of 10% . With markets being better regulated, plant growth regulators are expected to be increasingly popular among farmers.
As a novel crop protection product-oriented research, production and marketing enterprise, Mindleader is committed to becoming “a leading healthy crop planting service provider.” Over recent years, Mindleader launched one after another of its 3 prime product series - MINGRUNFENG® (PILARTEP®), DELIKA® ( PILARCLOTRIN®) and JIANXIU®. The product BIYI® was launched as a plant growth regulator and is expected to be another Yuan100 million sales product, following insecticides and fungicides.
