Ethephon is a plant growth regulator that has phytohormones that
promote the secretion of milk, accelerate the maturation, shedding,
aging, and promote the physiological effects of flowering. Under
certain conditions, ethephon not only releases ethylene itself, but
also induces ethylene production in plants.
Used as an agricultural plant growth stimulant. Ethephon
(ethylene-phosphorus) is a high-quality and efficient plant growth
regulator. One molecule of ethephon can release a molecule of
ethylene, which has the effect of promoting fruit ripening,
stimulating wound flow, and regulating gender transformation.
