Analysis (0.17-0-0.24 + 0.13% Ca, 0.08%Mg, With 0.25% Kinetin, 6% Kelp Extract and 5% Yucca Extract)

What Is It?

  • Cytokelp is a CFIA registered plant growth regulator (Fert. Act # 2015147A).
  • It contains the growth regulator Kinetin (6-Furfurylaminopurine).
  • Cytokelp also contains Kelp and Yucca extracts that are well documented to be involved in reducing stress under a variety of conditions and stimulating growth.
  • The product is available in 2 × 6 L cases.

When & Why Use It?

  • Cytokelp is recommended on a variety of field crops, vegetables and fruit trees.
  • It can be applied in-furrow, by drip-irrigation or drenching or as in-season foliar at the 3-5 leaf stage and early bloom.
  • Cytokelp contains naturally occurring plant biostimulants that encourage seedling and plant growth and may increase the number and size of flowers/fruit, plant weight, root weight, crop quality and yield while reducing the effects of environmental stress.
  • Kinetin is the only Canadian registered cytokinin that can be used on a variety of crop species.
  • Kinetin increases the rate of cell division, differentiation and growth.
  • It also delays senescence in plant tissues, increases flower set, fruit formation and side branching.
  • Kinetin applied at the right timing can lead to an enhancement of growth and development, seed and fruit set and ultimately yield.

What To Expect?

  • Stimulation of crop growth and development especially under stress situations.
  • Cytokelp increases the plant biomass; number and size of flowers/fruit, yield and quality.

Application Guidelines

  • Use on all field crops at 162 ml/ac at 3-5 leaf stage and at early bloom stages. On vegetable apply Cytokelp 14–21 days after emergence.
  • On turf apply 20–40 ml/100 meter square when grass becomes established. Repeat as necessary.
  • Cytokelp can be used for hydroponic at 2 ml/L on all crops from 3-5 leaf stage to bloom.
