While many businesses are looking towards winding down for the Christmas break, SST is just getting started. This month we hit a big milestone – we proudly sent our first shipment of product to China.
Entering a new market with agricultural adjuvants takes considerable work behind the scenes. The strength, diversity and quality of the SST business was the natural driver behind our focus to grow into China, and our distribution partner, Xi’an Raylinn Agricultural Science and Technology Co Ltd, has allowed us to focus in major agricultural provinces with key customers looking for quality Australian produced technologies.
In further developments, SST has engaged the global expertise of British Columbia based field consultant, Ashley Freeman to conduct trials for Waiken™ in the Yunnan Province with local orchard and vineyard growers to help them provide greater control over bud break, flowering and time of maturity. Sophistication of the Chinese Agricultural market continues to develop and SST is at the forefront.
Businesses that export are more profitable, more productive, and have stronger growth prospects, and at SST we are looking forward to not only being a trusted partner in Australia and New Zealand, but in China and beyond.

This means it can be used as a management tool to:
Thanks to its proprietary chemistry, Waiken allows growers to capitalise on more profitable early markets. Depending on when it is applied, Waiken can be used to bring forward or delay bud break.
Tips to improve effectiveness:
Waiken is an emulsified vegetable oil compound. Other tools available for manipulating bud break include common chemical rest breaking agents such as hydrogen cyanamide which have a higher toxicity rating.
