  • Ethephon-[(2-chloroethyl) phosphonic acid]-which is from the class of organophosphorus is known as ethylene generator and plant growth regulator.

  • Ethephon is a Plant growth regulator with systemic properties. Penetrates into the plant tissues, and is decomposed to ethylene, which affects the growth processes.

  • Ethephon is a plant growth regulator. It promotes pre-harvest ripening in apples, currants, blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, morello cherries, citrus fruit, figs, tomatoes, sugar beet and fodder beet seed crops, coffee, capsicum.

  • Ethephon is easily converted into ethylene and has the same harmful effects. Though State Food and Drugs Control Administration (FDCA) banned the use of ethephon last year in India, fruit traders have now resorted to bethylene.

  • Ethephon is an organophosphonate as opposed to an organophosphate. It is structurally different from and exhibits different physical/ chemical properties than traditional organophosphate compounds.

  • Ethylene is known to cause damage to the neurological system, affects the eyes, skin, lungs, memory and leads to prolonged hypoxia (lack of oxygen supply).

  • Ethephon is of extreme to high toxicity to aquatic plants, high to
    moderate toxicity to algae and low toxicity to fish and aquatic
    invertebrates,moderate toxicity to earthworms.

  • Ethephon is of low persistence in soil and of low mobility in soil.

  • Ethephon exhibits low acute toxicity via the oral (Toxicity Category III), inhalation (Toxicity Category IV), and dermal (Toxicity Category III) routes of exposure. Ethephon is dermally corrosive and is a skin and eye irritant (Toxicity Category I) but not a dermal sensitizer.

  • Ethephon uses in various fields such as  to increase fruit setting and yield in cucumbers; to improve the sturdiness of onion seed crops; to hasten the yellowing of mature tobacco leaves.

  • Several studies have since proved the ability of ethephon
    (ethrel) to alter sex expression in several members of the Cucurbitaceae.

  • Ethephon was effective in increasing pistillate flower number in monoecious
    inbreds, but had little effect on gynoecious inbreds.
