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.

New plants can mean new diseases. As you get ready to reload for next spring, be sure to rely on the best cultural practices for healthy plugs and propagation. As always, now is a great time to evaluate your production practices along with new products, programs and equipment. Then you can make any adjustments to prepare for the 2018 season. To start clean and keep your crops clean, rely on effective rotation programs with BASF fungicides:
