BudUp Ltd. – A Powerful Hydrogen Cyanimide Replacement for Breaking Bud Dormancy

The Need: In warm weather regions, prolonged dormancy is the major obstacle for economic production of many crops, due to a short chilling period. Hydrogen Cyanimide (HC) is the only effective solution to induce bud-break in table grapes, apple, kiwifruit, peach, cherry and pistachio. HC is already banned in Europe and under review in many other countries due to environmental reasons and since wrong application of HC harms the crop.


The Solution: BudUpTM is a powerful non-toxic HC replacement. Numerous field trials proved that BudUp has a similar effectiveness as HC of breaking bud dormancy. BudUp is not phytotoxic even if applied on non-dormant buds.
