Superior Potato Quality

- 1,4SIGHT® can be used as a stand alone product or to supplement your CIPC sprout control regimen. It works internally to delay sprouting activity, whereas CIPC works externally to prevent peeps from sprouting. Together they extend dormancy while controlling sprouts.
- 1,4SIGHT® penetrates through the potato skin to restore its dormancy. Dormancy lowers the respiration rate slowing the loss of moisture and solids, thereby diminishing shrink and susceptibility to pressure bruise. Restoring dormancy may also shorten the post-harvest “sweat period.”
- Maintaining dormancy helps retain potato firmness resulting in fresher appearing potatoes and fewer load downgrades.
