Walnut Creek, Calif., March 14, 2012 –Fine Americas, Inc., a leading manufacturer
and marketer of plant growth regulators for the greenhouse ornamental market, today
announced its sponsorship of the new PGR Mix Master mobile application developed
by University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension. Available in Android,
Blackberry and iPhone formats, the free application is an easy-to-use tool to assist
greenhouse personnel in calculating correct dilutions for plant growth regulators.
“This project would not have been possible without the generous financial support of
Fine Americas,” noted Dr. Brian Krug, greenhouse/floriculture specialist at University of
New Hampshire Cooperative Extension. “Thanks to our new PGR Mix Master app,
greenhouse personnel can use their smart phones to quickly and easily calculate correct
dilution rates for all popular PGRs currently registered for ornamentals.”

president Greg Johnson stated, “This is just another example of our company’s ongoing
commitment to grower education and training. In order to receive the full benefit of
today’s advanced PGRs, greenhouse personnel need to apply these products according
to label directions. The PGR Mix Master app will make it easier for growers and their
workers to apply plant growth regulators at the proper rates, a key step in improving plant
quality and greenhouse profitability.”
According to Dr. Krug, the new PGR Mix Master application is available free of
charge at the Android, Blackberry and iPhone app stores. For more information about
