Dormex® is a plant growth regulator used in vineyards and orchards to break bud dormancy and stimulate more uniform and earlier bud break. Treatment with Dormex® is necessary in regions with mild winters, where natural chilling is not sufficient to satisfy the chilling requirement of the target crops. The proper application of Dormex® increases the number of emerging buds, which in turn leads to impressive yield increases. Furthermore, Dormex® has proved to considerably advance bloom and harvest time in various regions worldwide.
The active ingredient of Dormex® is hydrogen cyanamide, a substance which is also present in nature. For example, plants like hairy vetch synthesize cyanamide for self-defence purposes.
Dormex® is manufactured in Germany under high quality standards, proved by ISO 9001 and TÜV certificates. These high standards for production and handling, assure that the product performs as indicated.
Dormex® is the perfect tool to manage production and harvest time in temperate zone crops. Ongoing research programs support the development of best practices to optimize the growth of crops under ever changing and often challenging conditions.
