J "" MALEIC HYDRAZIDE TECHNICAL FOR FORMULATION ONLY INTO END-USE PLANT GROWTH REGULATOR AND HERBICIDE PRODUCTS ~ niH e Active Ingredient: (% by weight) GJ 1,2-dihydro-3,6-pyridazinedione. 1. In Spring, just as the new leaves have expanded and new growth has started. 2. In Summer, after pruning and new regrowth is 2 to 4 inches in length. HOW THIS PRODUCT INHIBITS GRASS GROWTH This product is absorbed into the green grass blades and translocated by the plant fluids to the active growth areas of the plant where cell di-vision is retarded. Dinesh Singh, R.R. Sharma, in Postharvest Disinfection of Fruits and Vegetables, Plant Growth Regulators. Plant growth regulators are known to delay senescence and the onset of fruit rots. It is reported that indole acetic acid and maleic hydrazide were most effective against Aspergillus rot and Rhizopus rots of papaya fruits, while planofix (NAA, used at %) checked all rots.   Maleic hydrazide (MH; 1,2-dihydro-3,6-pyridazinedione) has been extensively used as a commercial systemic plant growth regulator and as herbicide since its introduction in (Schoene and Hoffman, ).Cited by: 4.

Critical concentrations of two growth retardants, N-dimethylamino succinamic acid (Alar) and (2-chloroethyl)trimethylammonium chloride (CCC), and one growth inhibitor, maleic hydrazide, applied continuously to Pinusresinosa seedlings in the cotyledon stage greatly suppressed seedling growth and development and killed many seedlings. Both Alar and CCC arrested the elongation of stems, roots, Cited by: 4. Maleic Hydrazide (MH): It is a systematic plant growth inhibitor which has been shown to inhibit cell division. Some workers have shown that transportation, respiration, and photosynthesis are inhibited by MH. CONTROL OF HEIGHT THROUGH GROWTH RETARDANTS IN FRUIT TREES File Size: 61KB.   MALEIC hydrazide, l,2-dihydropyridazine-3,6-dione, was synthesized in (ref. 1) and has since become an important herbicide with uses including inhibition of sprouting in vegetables and stored root crops, prevention of sucker production in tobacco plants and growth control of grass, and foliage 2, Maleic hydrazide is claimed to be selectively Cited by: Epicormic buds are stimulated to grow and produce shoots as a result of stress i.e. sudden environmental change, thinning, crown die-back, heavy pruning, root death, cold, change in the water table etc (Fig 1). Fig 1. Epicormic shoots on Sorbus aucuparia In temperate regions such as the UK the problem of epicormic branching is largelyFile Size: KB.

Maleic hydrazide is used as a herbicide to control quack grass, wild onions, wild garlic, and other undesirable weeds on residential lawns, in terrestrial non-food crops and industrial areas, and along roadsides and other rights-of-way.

Under some conditions, maleic hydrazide may have a significant po-tential for runoff into surface water (primarily via dissolution in runoff water) for several days post-application. Conditions favoring runoff in-clude poorly drained soils or wet soils with readily visible slopes, fre-.

INTRODUCTION MALEIC HYDRAZIDE One of the more recent additions to the group of compounds which regulate plant growth is the growth inhibitor maleic hydra- zide (MH) (35).
