|Product Name||Chlormequat chloride|
|Chemical Name||(2-CHLORETHYL)TRIMETHYLAMMONIUM CHLORIDE;|
|Specifications (COA)||Purity: 98% min|
|Formulations||98% TC, 80% SP, 50% AS|
|Mode of action||1. Promote the growth of stems and leaves|
2. Promote to rooting
3. Promote ripening of fruits
|Target crops||For greenhouse use as plant growth regulator on azaleas, poinsettias, geraniums, and hibiscus. Or for cotton, various vegetables, grape vines, mango, tobacco, and ornamentals. For wheat, rye, and oats.|
|Applications||1. Chlormequat chloride is a low poisonous plant growth regulator, it can be absorbed through leaves, branches, buds, the root system and seeds, control the plant excessive growth and cut down the knot of plant to be short, strong, coarse, root system to prosper and resist lodging.|
2. It makes leaves will be greener and thicker,the content of chlorophyll will increase and the photosynthesis will reinforce, which can improve the ratio of set fruit with better quality and higher yield.
3. It can also improve the plant ability to the environment-adjustment, such as drought-resistance, frigidity-resistance, disease and pests-resistance and salinization-resistance .
4. It can be used as the additives in fertilizers such as water flush fertilizer, folia fertilizer, root fertilizer and so on, to raise the absorption to the nutrition and the plant growth.

Skin Acute percutaneous LD50 for rats >4000 mg/kg.
Comparison for main formulations
|TC||Technical material||Material to make other formulations, has high effective content, usually can not use directly, need to add adjuvants so can be dissolved with water, like emulsifying agent, wetting agent, security agent, diffusing agent, co-solvent, Synergistic agent, stabilizing agent.|
|TK||Technical concentrate||Material to make other formulations, has lower effective content compared with TC.|
|DP||Dustable powder||Generally used for dusting, not easy to be diluted by water, with larger particle size compared with WP.|
|WP||Wettable powder||Usually dilute with water, can not used for dusting, with smaller particle size compared with DP, better not use in rainy day.|
|EC||Emulsifiable concentrate||Usually dilute with water,can used for dusting, soaking seed and mixing with seed, with high permeability and good dispersity.|
|SC||Aqueous suspension concentrate||Generally can use directly, with advantages of both WP and EC.|
|SP||Water soluble powder||Usually dilute with water,better not use in rainy day.|
