Improving the use of CIPC in bulk stores

Publication Date: 
16 July 2008

Conventional applications of chlorpropham (CIPC) sprout suppressant to bulk stores, without fans operating, can result in uneven distribution of the treatment. Some areas in the store may receive little chemical, resulting in earlier regrowth and the need for further applications. A better procedure involves low-speed recirculation of CIPC fog through bulk piles. This can significantly reduce the total dose of CIPC required over a storage season by providing a more even distribution of sprout suppressant.
