What is Sucker-Stopper RTU?
- Sucker-Stopper RTU is made from the plant growth regulator NAA. This product is widely used in commercial agriculture to prevent suckers and as a thinning agent on fruit trees.
What is Sucker-Stopper RTU used for?
- Sucker-Stopper RTU is used to prevent suckers and water sprouts on apples, pears, olives, non-bearing citrus and woody ornamental plants.
Why should I spray my tree?
- Many trees produce suckers every spring. Even though you cut them back, the suckers will continue to come back all summer long, which can require a lot of pruning. One application of Sucker-Stopper RTU can prevent growth of suckers.
- After pruning, many trees will put out suckers around the pruning wound. One application of Sucker-Stopper RTU after pruning will prevent these suckers from returning. Thoroughly cover the primary wound, or where the existing sprouts have been removed. Be sure to treat before new growth suckers are 10 inches in length. The earlier you treat, the better the results. Control should last about 3 months, depending on the species.
What precautions should I use with this product?
- On bearing trees (apples, pears, olives), do not apply during bloom or fruit set because fruit set reduction may occur. On woody ornamentals, this is not a problem. Do not apply the spray to buds or foliage as injury may result. Simply apply to the area around the primary wound or to the root suckering area. Be sure to apply before new suckers are 10 inches in length. For additional information, see the supplemental label on the back of the bottle, or on the label found here.
