SePRO Corporation Introduces "NEW" Landscape Growth Regulator
Carmel, IN - SePRO Corporation has announced the introduction of Cutless* Granular, a Landscape Growth Regulator (LGR). Cutless Granular is registered with the U.S. EPA for systemic growth suppression of woody ornamental plants and perennial ground covers, resulting in a more compact growth form and reduced need for trimming.

Todd Bunnell, Ph.D, Manager of Turf and Landscape Research for SePRO, describes how Cutless works; "Cutless Granular contains the active ingredient flurprimidol which interferes with the biosynthesis of gibberellic acid (GA), a plant growth hormone responsible for cell elongation and division. By disrupting GA biosynthesis, cell elongation and division are suppressed, resulting in reduced shoot growth and internode length in landscape ornamentals".

Cutless Granular improves the overall shrub shape and generates fuller more attractive plants by stimulating branching and promoting darker green foliage. "Plants treated with Cutless Granular will require less trimming and will reduce annual labor costs of maintaining landscaped shrubs, hedges and groundcovers", says Roger Storey, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for SePRO's Turf and Ornamental Business. "Cutless Granular will be a great new tool for landscape contractors who are looking for ways to increase profits and customer satisfaction. The "easy-to-apply" granular formulation will make applying a plant growth regulator much simpler than it has been in the past." Cutless Granular will be available in March of 2005.
