Precise Concentration 

HANNA Instruments:

The HANNA Fertigation System provides precise control of pH and fertilizer injection. Unlike flow-driven systems of the past, the HANNA Fertigation System constantly measures the actual EC and pH of the water, allowing the system to add the precise concentration of fertilizer directly to the irrigation supply. The HANNA System is a bypass system, which does not limit line flow or pressure, allowing injection from 5 gpm up to 300 gpm accurately. The HI8000 series controller included with the system has 10 programs that allow the user to set various EC and pH values for a variety of plants. The system also controls up to 32 irrigation valves.

 

Controlling Growth

Ball Seed and SePRO:

For the spring 2007 season, SePRO’s plant growth regulator, A-Rest, will be available as a seed treatment on selected bedding plants in the United States exclusively through Ball Seed Company. Treated seed will be sold as Ball Controlled Growth Seed as part of the Ball Premier Line. Ball Controlled Growth combines the high-quality benefits of A-Rest for control of early seedling stretch with seed technology from Ball Seed. By determining the optimum treatment rate of A-Rest for each seed lot and applying the treatment during the coating or pelleting process, Ball Controlled Growth provides consistent, early growth control.
