S-Abscisic Acid

BioNik™ Plant Growth Regulator

BioNik™ Plant Growth Regulator is a 25% formulation of S-abscisic acid (S-ABA or ABA) tailored for hybrid seed corn production. ABA is one of the five classes of plant growth regulators naturally present in plants. It regulates numerous plant processes including dormancy, maturation, growth, and response to stress conditions. In hybrid seed corn, BioNik delays germination on male inbred lines, widening the pollen shed window and ultimately maximizing the “nicking zone,” improving synchronization of pollen shedding of male flowers and female silks. It also effectively increases the amount of pollen shed by the males.

Widen pollination spread

The added flexibility of BioNik translates into better nick, increased productivity, and a significant return on investment.

Increase efficiency

Instead of making two plantings to maximize the overlap between pollen shed and silking, growers may opt for a single planting with a properly portioned mix of untreated and BioNik-treated seed.
