This article reports on BASF Corp.'s new plant growth regulator formulation, Pentia. According to Scott Asher, BASF market manager, one of the things Pentia has been shown to do is to get into the cotton plant from 22 to 25 percent quicker than other formulations of plant growth regulators. So six hours after application, they have 22 to 25 percent more compound in the cotton plant. The quicker uptake proved its value all across the Southeast and the Delta in 2004. With the quicker rainfastness of Pentia, growers are able to treat their cotton and not worry about it washing off.
