      Plant Growth Regulators (S) = spray / (D) = drench:
      Plant growth regulators are generally not needed and should only be applied if plants show signs of requiring extra control. B-Nine(S) 1,500-3,000 ppm applied 1 time up to 3 times should provide adequate control.
      Pests:
      Thrips, aphids, leafminers
      Diseases:
      Root rot
      Comments:
      Cooler air temperatures and high light will reduce or eliminate any need for plant growth regulators. Maintain pH at 5.2-5.8 to optimize plant health. Crop times will be shortest as days lengthen in Spring. Apply preventative broad-spectrum fungicide drench.
