Moddus is a growth regulator used for controlling the height of crops and plants, such as winter wheat, spring wheat, winter barley, spring barley, winter oats, spring oats, rye, triticale, durum wheat and ryegrass seed crops. Moddus also has an EMAU (Extension of Authorisation for Minor Use) in ornamental plant production & forest nursery.
Using a growth regulator such as Moddus will aid the crop to grow consistently across the field reducing the chance of areas growing excessive lush top growth. Crops with a large amount of lush top growth are more suceptibale to disease, so not only does regulating the growth help prevent this, it also means more energy is put into forming strong roots. The use of Moddus will also help prevent lodging (where crops 'fall over' due to having too much height) which will in turn increase crop yield.
If you are wanting to reduce the growth on amenity grass areas or sports pitches, look at Maintain.
