PIX (Mepiquat chloride) is a systemic plant growth regulator, extensively used in cotton production for the last two decades. PIX treated cotton plants tended to be shorter and narrower with thick and smaller leaves. PIX has been known to reduce the synthesis of gibberellic acid, resulting in the suppressionof cell enlargement. Well managed cotton in terms of providing good irrigation and fertilizers sometimes result in extensive vegetative growth. Cottonplants that are highly vegetative are subject to more disease and harvest losses, resulting in lower yields.
