Can be applied either through ground boom spray units or aerially. Do not apply to crops of low fertility or on crops grown on light soils which would be likely to suffer moisture stress.

Holdup is taken in through the stems and leaves of growing plants, where it is translocated within the plant. Simply instead of allowing the cells to pide evenly vertically, it changes the cellular structure so the pide horizontally. This causes a shortening and thickening of the stems, resulting in a stronger, shorter and thicker plant stem.
