Plug and Propagation / Insect and Disease Management

Greenhouse and nursery growers face different challenges in the fall, but the objective is the same: thorough preparation to produce healthy, quality plants.

Greenhouse growers

New plants can mean new diseases. As growers get ready to reload for spring, it’s important to rely on the best cultural practices for healthy plugs and propagation. BASF technical experts recommend sanitizing houses between crops and referring to last year’s records to anticipate pest management challenges in the 2018 growing season. To start clean and keep crops clean, growers can rely on effective rotation programs with BASF fungicides:

Nursery growers

They’re preparing shrubs and trees for shipment in late fall and spring. To protect their plants from mature growth through shipping, sales and replanting, recommend insect and disease management solutions from BASF:
