Mode of actions & functions:
Chlirmequat is a retardant of plant Growth. It process against gibberellic acid inside the plant when absorbed by organs (root, stem and leaves). It can restrain the elongation of cells, but have no influence on cell division; Restrain the growth of stem and leaves without affecting the development of sexual organs.
