Product Detail

Ethephon is a maturation-promoting plant growth regulator. Ethylene enters the plant through the leaves, bark, fruit or seeds of the plant, and then conducts to the working part, releasing ethylene, which can act as the endogenous hormone ethylene. Its physiological functions, such as promoting fruit ripening and shedding of leaves and fruits, dwarfing plants, changing the ratio of male and female flowers, inducing male sterility in some crops, etc.

Mode of Action

Ethephon enters the plant through the leaves, fruits and seeds of the plant, and is transmitted to the action site to release ethylene, which can promote fruit ripening, leaf and fruit shedding, dwarf plants, and change male and female flowers. ratio, induce male sterility in certain crops, etc.

Suitable crops: 

Ethephon is registered for use on a number of food, feed and nonfood crops, greenhouse nursery stock, and outdoor residential ornamental plants, but is used primarily on cotton.


Using Method

Formulation Plant Effect Usage Method

480g/l SL; 40% SL

Cotton Ripen 4500-6000/ha times liquid Spray
Tomatto/Rice Ripen 12000-15000/ha times liquid Spray
54% SL Rubber Increase production 0.12-0.16ml/plant Smear
20% GR Banana Ripen 50-70 mg/kg fruit Airtight fumigation

Method: Ethephon is typically applied as a foliar spray. The specific dosage and timing depend on the crop, the desired effect, and the environmental conditions.
Safety Measures: Proper protective equipment should be used to avoid direct contact with the skin and eyes. Applicators should follow the recommended guidelines for handling and usage.
Phytotoxicity: Over-application or improper timing can lead to plant stress or damage. It's important to adhere strictly to recommended application rates.
Environmental Impact: As with any agrochemical, responsible use is essential to minimize environmental contamination. Avoid application near water bodies and follow local regulations.
Residue Management: Ensure that the application complies with the pre-harvest interval to avoid excessive residue levels in the produce.


Ethephon is absorbed by plant tissues and then converted into ethylene, a natural plant hormone. This ethylene release regulates various physiological processes in plants. Ethephon is employed in a variety of crops for different purposes, including:

Fruit Ripening: It promotes uniform ripening of fruits such as tomatoes, apples, pineapples, and bananas.
Flower Induction: Used to induce flowering in pineapples.
Harvest Aid: Facilitates easier harvesting of crops like cotton by promoting boll opening.
Growth Regulation: Helps in controlling plant height in ornamental plants and cereals by reducing internode elongation.
Breaking Dormancy: Assists in breaking the dormancy of buds in certain crops like grapes and tubers.
Increasing Latex Flow: Used in rubber trees to enhance latex production.


Uniform Ripening: Ensures consistent color and quality in fruits, improving marketability.
Enhanced Harvest Efficiency: By promoting uniform maturation, ethephon aids in synchronized harvesting, which can reduce labor costs and improve yield.
Growth Control: Helps manage plant height and structure, which is particularly useful in dense planting systems to improve light penetration and reduce lodging.
Induction of Flowering: Allows for better scheduling of flowering and fruit set, improving overall crop management.
Improved Latex Yield: In rubber trees, it can significantly boost latex output, enhancing productivity.
