MaxCel® Plant Growth Regulator
MaxCel, also known as Cylex™ Plant Growth Regulator in some regions, is a formulation of the plant growth regulator 6-benzyladenine (6-BA), a potent fruit thinner used in apples and pears. 6-BA promotes cell division and fruit growth beyond the thinning effect without over-stressing the tree. Its state-of-the-art formulation includes a built-in surfactant that improves activity under a wide range of conditions. MaxCel helps to adjust crop load and ensure annual cropping while saving growers money.
