Chlorpropham (Bud Nip®) is used for the prevention of late season suckers. It is applied to plants with fully expanded tip leaves. If applied earlier, the upper leaves exhibit more puckering than normal, which gives the leaves a "waffled" appearance. Suckers present at the time of treatment grow slowly and develop a rosette appearance, apparently because internode lengths are shortened.
