The Natural Biostimulant


What is It?

  • CFIA-registered supplement: Reg. # 2018063A, Fertilizers Act.
  • Triacontanol is a plant growth regulator naturally found in plant epicuticular waxes & beewax.
  • It is present in abundance in the leaves of most plants.
  • Triacontanol affects many aspects of crops growth and development including photosynthesis; protein synthesis; uptake of water and nutrients; yield; seed and fruit number, size and quality; and oil production.
  • Triacontanol triggers the release of Adenosine, a fast-acting second messenger important for the regulation of transpiration and translocation of sugars, amino acids, soluble proteins, and fatty acids in various crops.

When & Why Use It?

  • The product is recommended on all crops including field, horticultural and vegetable crops as well as fruit trees, turf and ornamentals.
  • Include low doses with all sprays.
  • Use to enhance growth and protect against abiotic stress.

What to Expect?

  • An improved growth and development especially under stress conditions.
  • Better regulation of water use efficiency (WUE).
  • Better translocation of sugars and other metabolites.
  • Enhanced oil content in oilseeds.
  • Good yield along with quality.

Application Guidelines

  • Include TRIA with dry or liquid fertilizer applied in-furrow.
  • Include with all foliar sprays.
  • Apply with enough water to guarantee a uniform coverage.
  • DO NOT exceed the recommended rates in ml/ac (mg a.i./ac).
  • Applying higher rates at one time can have negative effects on growth and development.
