AMVAC®, a global technology solutions provider in agriculture, has added Mandolin® plant growth regulator specifically formulated for thinning citrus fruit, to its citrus product portfolio. Mandolin received EPA registration in California for use on mandarins, including tangerines, tangelos, tangors and clementines, as well as oranges.
By effectively thinning immature fruit at the appropriate time, Mandolin offers citrus growers a solution to promote size and quality improvements in mandarins. Mandolin helps growers combat problems caused by overcrowded fruit, such as limited quality and carbohydrate drain, which can weaken trees and make them more susceptible to pests and sun damage.
“We are excited to release this product for citrus growers in California,” said Micah Scanga, U.S. commercial product manager at AMVAC. “Mandolin will help growers achieve enhanced profitability and maximize citrus crop value.”
Mandolin is an addition to AMVAC’s citrus product portfolio, which includes AbbA ULTRA® miticide/insecticide helping growers fight damaging mites and insects; Citrus Fix® plant growth regulator that provides preharvest fruit-drop control; Deadline® molluscicide products for fast, effective, and long-lasting control of slugs and snails; and Krovar® DF Crop herbicide with two modes of action for built-in resistance management and residual control of key annual and perennial broadleaf and grass weeds.
