More on Liner Soaks vs. Liner Drenches
By Joyce Latimer, Virginia Tech
As you plan your PGR applications for the upcoming spring season, consider implementing more liner soaks or liner drenches into your production plan. In previous posts we have discussed the value of using liner soaks as an effective means of applying plant growth regulators (PGRs) on a wide range of floricultural crops. And later we compared this application method to liner drenches which would be a more efficient method for high volume growers making larger scale applications. This video expands on the comparison of the effect of these two methods on the growth of Agastache ‘Blue Boa’ and Salvia guaranitica ‘Black and Blue’ and gives guidelines for establishing application rates for liner drenches.
