Your Potential

Yield Potential

Plan for success and choose Manipulator PGR as your plant growth regulator for wheat, oats and barley.

View Yield Data

Get more potential out of your cereals by using Manipulator PGR from the start.

  • Increase yield through improved plant efficiency and optimized tillering and head fill
  • Maximize your fungicide efficacy with main stem and tiller head uniformity
  • Allow for more efficient nutrient and resource transfer through reduced straw development

Improved Harvestability

Manipulator PGR takes the stress out of harvest and ensures every bushel ends up in the bin.

  • Spend less time in the field thanks to increased combine speeds with easier-to-thresh straw, reduced lodging, and less straw throughput
  • Increase combine productivity, reduce fuel consumption, and decrease your overall machine stress and staffing costs
  • Plus, less straw on the ground reduces seeding issues the following year

Lodging Resistance

It’s not just about lodging, but lodging resistance is still at Manipulator PGR’s core.

  • Shorter, stronger stems with thicker walls improve standability, even in adverse growing conditions
  • Reduce yield loss due to lodging
  • Minimize lodging-induced frustration while maximizing combine performance
