Moddus is a growth regulator, used for controlling 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 regualtor such as Moddus will aid the crop to grow in unison across the field, with no areas growing too much lush top growth. Crops with a large amount of lush top growth as more suceptibale to disease, so not only does regualating 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 mcuh height. Preventing lodging will help to increase yields.
