The Forecast Calls for Dormex

DormexFueled by the strongest El Nino on record, rains are coming in waves across the country. Given the unusual weather pattern, growers are more concerned than ever about proper application timing to get the best results from their plant growth regulator (PGR). They want to know how soon it can rain after application and still achieve product performance using Dormex.

Research shows that Dormex is rainfast within as little as 4 hours.

Knowing this will help farmers and applicators manage treatments and will provide peace of mind regarding product effectiveness. Dormex works best when applied 30 days before budbreak. California and other production areas contain a myriad of microclimates, meaning budbreak can vary greatly between locations. Knowing that Dormex has a 4-hour rainfast feature assists growers in getting every field treated.

Steve Krask, President of Dormex Company LLC understands these concerns. Krask explains, “We are confident Dormex can perform when it is rainfree for as little as 4 hours after application, because it rapidly penetrates the plant tissue and produces results. We hope that growers armed with this information can better plan their applications and proceed with confidence.”

Dormex plant growth regulator was discovered and is manufactured by AlzChem AG, which has a long history of providing fertilizers and other helpful tools growers use to produce food crops around the world. Dormex USA based in Atlanta, GA is the company focused on selling the product in the USA. Learn more at
