For the management of fruiting and vegetative growth in Cotton. Modifies the cotton plant by regulating its growth patterns and behaviour.
- For the management of fruiting and vegetative growth in Cotton as per the DIRECTIONS FOR USE table.
- Earlier maturity, therefore shorter season.
- More open canopy. Greater harvest index.
Mode of Action
Pix is a plant growth regulator which is absorbed & translocated throughout the plant. Pix acts to inhibit the biosynthesis of gibberellic acid, resulting in reduced vegetative growth, reduction in internodal length, earlier maturity & better boll retention.
General Instructions Mode of Action
Nufarm PIX is a foliar applied plant regulator which modifies the cotton plant by regulating its growth pattern and behaviour.
PIX may produce one or more of the following effects in cotton: darker leaf colour, reduction of internodal length, more open canopy, better boll retention, earlier maturity. Some of these may favourably influence the yield potential of the cotton plant.
Export of Treated Produce
Growers should note that suitable MRLs or import tolerances may not be established in all markets for produce treated with PIX Plant Growth Regulator.
If you are growing produce for export, please check with Nufarm Australia Ltd for the latest information on MRLs and import tolerances BEFORE using PIX.
PIX as a crop management tool is best applied as split application "Multiple Low Rates" rather than a single application. First spray should be applied early (early squaring) and repeated as suggested in the DIRECTIONS FOR USE table.
PIX may be applied by air or ground. Best results can be obtained with total spray volumes of at least 20 to 30 L/ha for aerial application and 80 to 100 L/ha for application by ground rig.
PIX has an aqueous base and mixes readily with water. Add the required amount of PIX to the partly filled spray tank and agitate to give even mixing.
PIX has been found to be compatible with emulsifiable concentrate (EC) formulations of the following insecticides: endosulfan, permethrin, deltamethrin, fenvalerate, methomyl. Care should be taken that there is no conflict in application techniques between PIX and the insecticide when applying products together.
Do NOT tank-mix with foliar fertilisers as the benefits from such mixes have not been established.
Under strong winds PIX-treated cotton that has set bolls packed tightly together against the stem may be more susceptible to lodging.
Precautions Re-entry Period
Do NOT allow entry into treated areas until the spray deposits have dried. When prior entry is necessary, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist and elbow-length PVC gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day?s use.
