Differences between Atonik and DA-6

Atonik and DA-6 are both plant growth regulators. Their functions are basically the same.  Let's take a look at their main differences:
(1) Compound sodium nitrophenolate (Atonik) is a red-yellow crystal, while DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) is a white powder;
(2) Atonik has a fast-acting effect, while DA-6 has a good durability;
(3) Atonik is alkaline in water, while DA-6 is acidic in water

(4) Atonik takes effect quickly but maintains its effect for a short time;  
 DA-6 takes effect slowly but maintains its effect for a long time.

How to use Compound sodium nitrophenolate (Atonik)
In alkaline (pH>7) foliar fertilizer, liquid fertilizer or fertilization, it can be directly stirred and added.
When adding to acidic liquid fertilizer (pH5-7), compound sodium nitrophenolate should be dissolved in 10-20 times warm water before adding. 
When adding to acidic liquid fertilizer (pH3-5), one is to use alkali to adjust pH5-6 before adding, or add 0.5% citric acid buffer to liquid fertilizer before adding, which can prevent Compound sodium nitrophenolate (Atonik) from flocculating and precipitating. 
Solid fertilizers can be added regardless of acidity or alkalinity, but must be mixed with 10-20 kg of the body before adding or dissolved in granulation water before adding, according to the actual situation. 
Compound sodium nitrophenolate (Atonik) is a relatively stable substance, does not decompose at high temperatures, does not become ineffective when dried, and can be stored for a long time.

Compound sodium nitrophenolate (Atonik) dosage
Compound sodium nitrophenolate (Atonik) dosage is small: calculated per acre
(1) 0.2 g for foliar spraying;  
(2) 8.0 g for flushing;  
(3) 6.0 g for compound fertilizer (basal fertilizer, topdressing fertilizer).

How to use DA-6

1.   Direct use
DA-6 raw powder can be directly made into various liquids and powders, and the concentration can be adjusted according to needs.  It is easy to operate and does not require special additives, operating processes and special equipment.

2.   Mixing DA-6 with fertilizers
DA-6 can be directly mixed with N, P, K, Zn, B, Cu, Mn, Fe, Mo, etc.   It is very stable and can be stored for a long time.

3.   DA-6 and fungicide combination
The combination of DA-6 and fungicide has obvious synergistic effect, which can increase the effect by more than 30% and reduce the dosage by 10-30%.   Experiments have shown that DA-6 has inhibitory and preventive effects on various plant diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, viruses, etc.

4.   DA-6 and insecticide combination
It can increase plant growth and enhance plant insect resistance. And DA-6 itself has a repellent effect on soft-bodied insects, which can kill insects and increase production.

5.   DA-6 can be used as an antidote for herbicides
Experiments have shown that DA-6 has a detoxifying effect on most herbicides.

6.   DA-6 and herbicide combination
DA-6 and herbicide combination can effectively prevent crop poisoning without reducing the effect of herbicides, so that herbicides can be used safely.
