Timing of Configure Application Affects Pot Fill of Echinacea

Echinacea is one of the herbaceous perennial crops that is very responsive to Configure (BA, Fine Americas, Inc.) applications. Early applications can improve plant branching resulting in improved pot fill early in the crop cycle. This video shows research results from Virginia Tech on the effect of early applications of Configure on the branching and pot fill of Echinacea ‘White Swan’.
