Range and method of use

INSENOL®–S is an auxiliary preparation intended for treating spring barley. It protects against pre-harvest and harvest-time cracking and protects it from adverse weather. It creates a semi-permeable layer on the surface of the plant which does not limit drying out but simultaneously does limit the penetration of water and damp into the tissue of the plant.
