Early growth regulation with liner soaks vs liner drenches

Liner soaks provide an effective means of applying plant growth regulators (PGRs) on a wide range of floricultural crops. However, high volume growers in particular would like to apply these early growth retardants on a larger scale by using drench applications instead of soaks. This video describes the use of both liner soaks and liner drenches, and shows a comparison of the two methods in the growth of Agastache ‘Blue Boa.’
