Fine Americas, Inc., a leading manufacturer and marketer of plant growth regulators for the fruit and ornamental sectors, announced the introduction of its new Falgro 2X LV plant growth regulator. The new formulation is labeled for use on a wide variety of high-value crops, including table grapes, citrus and sweet cherries.

"Falgro 2X LV offers two significant advantages over our popular Falgro 4L formulation," noted Greg Johnson, president of Fine Americas. "First, Falgro 2X LV is the only low-volatile organic compound (VOC) liquid GA3 formulation approved by the California Department of Pesticide Regulation. And second, Falgro 2X LV features twice the concentration of gibberellin A3 (GA3), making it easier to handle and mix."

According to Kevin Forney, technical services manager for Fine Americas, Falgro 2X LV offers a number of economic benefits to fruit growers. "In table grapes, for example, applications of Falgro 2X LV for 'stretch' produces looser clusters, allows for better air circulation to aid in the control of bunch rot, and increases light penetration to aid in sugar development."

Forney added that Falgro 2X LV protects oranges, grapefruit and other citrus varieties from rind disorders while helping cherry growers produce larger, firmer and brighter-colored fruit. "It really is a very versatile product for improving the yield and marketability of labeled crops. And because the new 2X LV formulation is a liquid, it's extremely user-friendly as well."

Falgro 2X LV is one of a growing portfolio of plant growth regulators currently offered by Fine Americas for use in fruit and vegetable crops. The company's other brands include Blush, Exilis Plus, Motivate, Novagib and Perlan. Growers interested in learning more about these products should visit the company website at
