Cut basil – dipping of cuttings
Before only 2-3 cuts could be performed on the basil plants – after this the plant was too exhausted and new seedlings had to be planted out. Since initiation of a regular treatment with Flavonin®, plants can be cut 6-8 times. After this they still produce enough high-quality shoots, which can be sold as plucked basil.
From this glasshouse we also received results from trials with basil seedlings. The seedlings including the grow cube were dipped in a Flavonin® solution before repotting. This treatment showed accelerated development regarding roots and biomass as well as a significantly lower sensitivity to infections of the plants.
