DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) is a high-energy plant growth regulator with broad spectrum and breakthrough effects.
 It can increase the activity of plant peroxidase and nitrate reductase, increase the chlorophyll content, speed up photosynthesis, promote the division and elongation of plant cells, promote the development of root systems, and regulate the balance of nutrients in the body. 
Brassinolide (BR)) is a broad-spectrum and highly efficient plant growth regulator. It is called the sixth type of plant hormone due to its small dosage and effective effects of brassinolide.

1. What is the function of DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate)?
DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) can increase the content of chlorophyll, protein, nucleic acid and photosynthetic rate in plants, as well as the activities of peroxidase and nitrate reductase, promote the carbon and nitrogen metabolism of plants, and enhance the absorption and drying of water and fertilizer by plants. 

The accumulation of substances regulates the water balance in the body, enhances the disease resistance, drought resistance, and cold resistance of crops and fruit trees, delays plant aging, promotes early maturity of crops, increases yield, and improves crop quality, thereby increasing yield and quality.

DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) is also powerful when use alone. If mixed with a nutrient-rich foliar fertilizer, it can also accelerate the absorption of nutrients into crops, with a higher utilization rate, achieving twice the result with half the effort!

2.   What is the function of Brassinolide(BR)?
Brassinolide (BR) is different from other plant growth regulators in its one-way targeting in promoting crop yield and improving quality.
For example, it not only has the physiological functions of auxin and cytokinin, but also has the ability to increase photosynthesis and regulate nutrient distribution,promote the transport of carbohydrates from stems and leaves to grains, improve the crop's resistance to external adverse factors, and promote the growth of weak parts of the plant.

Therefore, it has extremely wide usability and practicality.
1.  Brassinolide (BR) can make fruit sweeten and look beautiful.
The use of brassinolides can sweeten sugar cane and increase the proportion of medium and high-grade tobacco leaves.    Its use on citrus can improve defects such as thick skin, scarred fruits, crooked fruits, and lignification caused by spraying gibberellin.
Lychees, melons and beans Using it can make the fruit uniform, improve the appearance, increase the selling price and increase income.

2. Brassinolide (BR) can delay leaf senescence.
It keeps green for a long time, strengthens chlorophyll synthesis, improves photosynthesis, and promotes leaf color to deepen and turn green.

3. Brassinolide (BR) can promote flower and fruit preservation
Used during the flowering stage and young fruit stage, it can promote flowers and fruits and prevent fruit drop.

4.  Brassinolide (BR) can promote cell division and fruit enlargement
It can obviously promote the division of cells and promote the horizontal and vertical growth of organs, thereby enlarging the fruit.

5.  Brassinolide (BR) can increase yields
Breaking the top advantage and promoting the germination of lateral buds can penetrate the differentiation of buds, promote the formation of lateral branches, increase the number of branches, increase the number of flowers, improve pollen fertilization, thereby increasing the number of fruits and increasing yield.

6.  Brassinolide (BR) can improve crop commerciality
Induces parthenocarpy, stimulates ovary enlargement, prevents flower and fruit drop, promotes protein synthesis, increases sugar content, improves crop quality, and improves marketability.

7. Brassinolide (BR) can regulate and balance nutrition.
Brassinoids are not foliar fertilizers and have no nutritional effect, so the mixed application of foliar fertilizers and brassinoids is particularly effective. Foliar fertilizer can supplement plant nutrients, but it does not have the ability to balance and regulate nutrient transport; Brassinolide can transport nutrients in a balance manner, allowing nutrient directional conduction, so that both vegetative and reproductive growth of crops can receive reasonable nutrients.

8. Brassinolide (BR) can sterilize and increase efficiency, and quickly restore growth.
Fungicides can only suppress diseases but have little effect on restoring crop growth. Brassinoids can balance nutrient transport, promote root absorption, and promote photosynthesis. Therefore, when fungicides are mixed with brassinoids, their advantages are complementary. Brassinoids can help treat diseases effectively and help crops recover quickly.

9. Brassinolide (BR) can resist cold, frost, drought and disease
After brassinoids enter the plant, it not only enhances photosynthesis and promotes growth and development, but also has a special protective effect on the plant cell membrane system to resist adverse environmental damage. It can also stimulate the activity of protective enzymes in the plant, greatly reducing the impact of harmful substances on Damage to the normal growth of plants and comprehensively improve the stress resistance of crops.

2. The difference between DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) and Brassinolide (BR)
DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) and Brassinolide (BR) are both highly effective plant regulators, which can promote crop growth, root development, improve leaf photosynthesis, improve plant resistance to drought, stress, and disease, and alleviate phytotoxicity. Promote plant flowering and fruiting, improve plant yield and quality, etc.

At the same time, it can be mixed with pesticides, fungicides or fertilizers, and can significantly improve the efficacy of pesticides and fertilizers. DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) is also significantly different from Brassinolide (BR) and has different effects.

1.   Different ways of regulating effects on plants.
(1) Brassinolide (BR) is one of the endogenous hormones in plants.  
It regulates growth through the synthesis of growth hormones in plants.   However, brassinolide itself is not a plant hormone, but it can regulate the production of gibberellins in plants and promote the growth of plants , can also fix nitrogen in legume crops.

(2) DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) not only has the growth-regulating effect of Brassinolide (BR), but is also safer than Brassinolide (BR) and is not subject to temperature restrictions, but it still needs to be used in specific applications.

2.   Different temperature requirements.
Generally speaking, the higher the temperature, the faster Brassinolide (BR) works.   At lower temperatures, the effect of using it is not so obvious.   However, ethanol can be used at low temperatures, which is also determine by the different modes of action we just mentioned.   As long as the crops are growing, there must be endogenous hormones in the plants.

DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) can work through these hormones. Therefore, ethanol is widely use in winter crops in greenhouses and some crops grown in early spring.

3.   Different validity periods
Brassinolide (BR) takes effect quickly, but its duration is relatively short, while DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) can show obvious effects in 2-3 days after being absorbed by crops.   At the same time, it can also be stored by crops and can slowly Release, therefore, its effect will take longer to regulate, and the general duration of effect can reach 20 to 30 days.

4.   Different security
Brassinolide (BR) is generally effective in small amounts, but if used too little or too much, it will be ineffective.  It will cause the branches and leaves to grow vigorously or cause side effects.   DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) has a wider concentration range, ranging from a few grams to dozens of grams, and can play a very good regulatory role, with basically no side effects or drug harm.

5.   Different scope of use
Brassinolide (BR) usually takes effect quickly, but the duration of effect is usually relatively short.  However, DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) can have a significant regulatory effect 2-3 days after general spraying, making the leaves greener and larger, and enhancing photosynthesis.  

At the same time, due to its unique regulatory effect, DA-6 (Diethyl aminoethyl hexanoate) not only regulates crop absorption, but also regulates plant growth through storage in the body and slowly releases it in the plant body, so the regulatory effect lasts longer.   The effect is usually better, and the lasting effect can last up to 30 days.
