SePRO Introduces New PGR Formulation
SePRO Corp. recently introduced a new low-odor formulation of Topflor plant growth regulator. This new formulation provides the same growth regulation performance with less odor, according to a company press release.
Growers across the country have commented on the flower enhancement provided by Topflor. “We see earlier flowering with plants drenched with Topflor versus some of the other products we used in the past,” said Norris Powell, Pest Control Team Leader at Hines-Houston, Texas, in the press release. “This allows us to have plants ready for on-time shipment in full bloom.”
Topflor is active on a wide variety of ornamental plants and is active via roots, stems and foliage.
