As a free service to our customers using our blended fertilizers, we will interpret your nutrient, tissue and media analysis results. Your historical information is stored in our computer for easy retrieval, which allows us to help you make the minor adjustments needed to get the maximum performance from your plants. You simply send the samples to one of the labs listed, and specify that they need to fax a copy to Hydro-Gardens. We recommend that you have a tissue analysis done at least once each month starting when the plants have developed their 3rd flower cluster.
We can provide you with a beneficial insect program that will show our recommended release rates for beneficials for nearly any pest you are likely to encounter. Simply provide us with the crop you are growing, the size greenhouse area you have, number of greenhouse areas, your anticipated start date, and your expected ending date. We can then print off a week by week list of things to do for the entire season.
When you have a disease or insect problem that you don’t recognize, take some sample leaves, wrap them in a dry paper towel, put this in a Ziploc bag and mail the package to us. It is probable that one of us will be able to recognize the problem and give you the appropriate solution.
This business is unique, and although many aspects of it are the same for all growers, each grower has individual needs. We are able to tailor our technical services to your requirements. Custom fertilizer blends, greenhouse and growing system quotes, marketing advice, and specific tips to improve your profitability are some of the many areas we can provide information about through our FREE phone & e-mail services.
