Therefore, Upganic, a formula containing this natural amino acid synthesized by the plants, is becoming a promising ethylene releaser, safer and more efficient alternative to the most sold plant growth regulator (PGR) in the world, the Etephon.
So, the new ethylene liberator aims to compete in the world market with other ethylene releasers such as ethephon and calcium carbide in artificial maturation. And also avoid public health problems by the already mentioned liberators.
As, the social conscience for the protection of the environment and the healthiest natural foods are currently increasing among consumers in developed countries.
As a result, Upganic would maintain the levels of waste expected in the export fruit market in a wide range of crops.
