Application of Boom Flower®
Boom Flower® is unique and it is very important to apply at the right growth stage of the crop for best results. Normally 3 to 4 sprays are recommended on seasonal crops depending on the duration of the crop.
1. Early phase:
Spraying 10 to 20 days after sowing / transplantation. This spray is aimed at the early root development and also to increase the tillers / branches and for a robust growth.
2. Flower initiation phase:
Spraying 15 to 20 days before flowering. The flower initiation will not be visible externally as it is an internal process and this action decides the number of flowers, length of the panicle, etc. This spray is aimed at increasing the number of flowers for higher yield.
3. Flowering phase:
Spraying at the time of flowering is aimed at preventing the flower drop and to enhance the flower / fruit development for increased yield and good quality produce.
For single flowering crops like rice, wheat, corn etc., we need to time the application carefully to match the flower initiation time. Three rounds are sufficient and all the 3 are important.
Continuous flowering crops like tomatoes, other vegetables, cucurbits, cotton, fruits and flower crops where different stages of flowers and fruits can be seen, the spray application after the early phase will have to be repeated at an interval of 20 days till the end of the crop.
Therefore, it is essential to understand the critical crop growth stages before making a suitable spray schedule.
