How to correctly use 6-Benzylaminopurine (6-BA) on the vegetables production
6-Benzylaminopurine can delay senescence and retain freshness
Before the harvest of celery, spray on the whole plant with 5-10mg/kg of 6-Benzylaminopurine soup; after the harvest of cauliflower, dip 5-20mg/kg of 6-Benzylaminopurine soup in the cauliflower root; before the harvest of broccoli or not long after the harvest of lettuce, spray on the whole field with 10-20 mg/kg 6-Benzylaminopurine soup; before the harvest of cabbage, spray on the whole field with 30mg/kg 6-Benzylaminopurine soup or spray and dip with the same concentration of soup after the harvest of cabbage, which should be stored at 5 degree Celsius.
6-Benzylaminopurine can increase the female flowers quantity
Spray on the leaf surface with 15mg/kg of 6-Benzylaminopurine soup in the 2-leaf stage of autumn cucumber seedling.
6-Benzylaminopurine can improve the germination rate
In summer and fall when the temperature is very high, soak the lettuce seeds three minutes with 100mg/kg of 6-Benzylaminopurine soup.
6-Benzylaminopurine can promote the melon growth
After 2-3 days of cucumber female flowering, spray on the melon with 500-1000mg/kg of 6-Benzylaminopurine soup.
The application method of 6-Benzylaminopurine
Accurately weigh 0.02 gram of 6-BA and put it into the beaker, add 1 percent of diluted hydrochloric acid and stir them until they are completely dissolved. Afterwards, add water to the volume of 100L, thus the stoste of 200mg/kg can be generated. When it is used, water can be used to dilute it according to the working concentration. Besides, when the dosage of 6-BA is small, it should be weighed by the high precision balance. As 6-BA is difficult to transport in the plant body, it should be sprayed directly on the action site.
