Plant growth regulators (PGRs) are widely used in Tasmania to control lodging of winter wheat grown with high rates of applied nitrogen fertiliser. There is some evidence from research conducted by chemical companies that timely applications of growth retardants may increase yield irrespective of whether lodging has occurred. Trials evaluated the individual and combined effects of two growth regulators, chlormequat (trade names include; Cycocel®, CCC-720, Errex 750) and trinexapac-ethyl (trade name Moddus®) on height and yield of winter wheat.
