      Plant Growth Regulators (S) = spray / (D) = drench: Bonzi(S) 5-15 ppm is effective for height control. Florel(S) 100-300 ppm can be used to improve branching but will not usually be needed.

      Comments: Start feeding immediately after transplanting. Avoid water stress in all stages of crop. Avoid cold stress (night temperatures below 65°F/18°C). Maintain EC above 1.0 (SME). Use early PGR application to achieve ideal finished plants. A light Bonzi drench when plant is three-quarters of finish size will promote flowering above the foliage.
