Ask an Expert: Pros and Cons of Drench vs. Spray
Q: Spring is on the horizon. Why is it crucial to consider drench or spray products now?
A: Most growers have small plugs and plant cuttings that are just starting to grow, so with spring approaching, they will have to decide if they are going to treat plants with drench or foliar spray applications. Drenching and sprays each have an important role in pest control. Treatment method depends on factors such as pest location (roots, crown, leaves) and product characteristics (solubility, absorption, translocation).
