Gulliver 1% EC

GULLIVER 1% EC is a plant growth regulator that contains forchlorfenuron (CPPU) to increase fruit size in grapes.


The plant growth regulator, GULLIVER, has cytokinin-like activity that promotes cell division, increases cell number and fruit size, and improves fruit quality. It tends to increase berry diameter in grapes, in contrast to gibberellic acid which has a greater effect on berry length. It is one of the most active promoters of cell division known.

In Kiwis (Hayward and Bruno Varieties) and in Pears (Spadona and Costia Varieties) Gulliver increases fruit quality and size and it provides significant potential to improve cropping without any negative aspects.

Features and Benefits:

  • Increases cell multiplication, fruit size and fruit quality in grapes.
  • Increases fruit size, without affecting shape.
  • Prolongs shelf life.
  • Reduces fruit drop.

Mode of Action

Forchlorfenuron, the active ingredient, is absorbed through stems, leaves, flowers and fruit. It is not translocated, and so a spray targeted at the fruit optimizes activity.

GULLIVER may also reduce fruit drop and prolong shelf life of treated fruit. At higher rates it may delay fruit ripening.

GULLIVER is not systemic and applications are made prior to the formation of new buds, and so treatment has no direct influence on cropping in the following year.

GULLIVER is particularly recommended for white grape varieties.
