WALNUT CREEK, USA: Fine Americas introduces two new PGRs for the ornamentals industry that promote rooting and plant development early in the production cycle. Advocate helps propagate plants from cuttings, while Crest can improve the germination of seed, plant emergence, root growth and seedling development.
“In addition to their individual benefits, these two products work well in tandem,” says Greg Johnson, President, Fine Americas, Inc. “Crest provides an excellent follow-up treatment to Advocate in both herbaceous and woody cuttings.” Advocate initiates rooting when cuttings are stuck in planting media. Once rooting initiates, applications of Crest help continue to promote growth of both shoots and roots in young plants.
Crest contains three PGRs (IBA, Kinetin and GA) in proper ratios to aid in early plant growth and development. In addition to its use for improving germination and development, Crest is also effective in establishing young plants for continued growth and development throughout the growing season. Apply it through watering programs or as foliar sprays/sprenches to reduce apical dominance and to promote bud differentiation, cell division, root induction and growth.
Note: Before applying any previously untested tank mix, always test for compatibility on a small group of plants for efficacy and phytotoxicity.
At this point these products are only registered for the U.S..
