Timing of application
Since the plant needs to convert the eliciting effects from HALO into biochemical processes, the best effects are obtained when the product is applied to physiologically active plants. Treatments are recommended around critical crop physiological growth stages, such as flower induction, fruit set, fruit enlargement and pre-harvest. In some perennial crops, the treatment of HALO in the previous season can affect the plant in the following growth cycle or spring. This can also benefit cuttings/clones taken from the treated plant. This can result in earlier bud formation and hence greater flowering potential.
Always apply foliar feeds when the sun is down or when the lights are off to avoid scorching your plant.
Trials are also showing great benefits as a seed soak in some crops and this research is continuing.
Top Tip: If you need to keep your plants small, do not apply in the vegetative stage of their development.
