Title: USE OF COMPOSITIONS COMPRISING PELARGONIC ACID AND SPECIFIC NON IONIC SURFACTANTS FOR INHIBITING THE GROWTH OF SUCKERS ON PLANTS
Abstract:
The present invention relates to the use of pelargonic acid and one or more nonionic surfactants for inhibiting the growth of suckers on plants. It also relates to a composition comprising pelargonic acid and one or more nonionic surfactants in an amount effective for inhibiting the growth of suckers in plants. Preferably, the composition comprises pelargonic acid in an amount between 50 and 90 w/w % and one or more polyoxyethylene glycol sorbitan alkyl esters or sorbitan alkyl esters in an amount between 10 and 50 w/w %, in which 100 w/w % is the total amount of pelargonic acid and one or more polyoxyethylene glycol sorbitan alkyl esters or sorbitan alkyl ester. It also relates to a method of applying pelargonic acid or the composition in an amount effective to inhibit for inhibiting the growth of suckers on plants.
