OHP display a success at CA Spring Trials

OHP was privileged to welcome many visitors to its California Spring Trials display at American Takii in Salinas. Held in April, the annual event attracts growers from across the U.S. to view the latest in genetics, plant materials, and research at locations up and down the coast of California. OHP demonstrated the results of its plant growth regulators (PGR) on perennials and annuals such as Takii's Opera Supreme Petunias, flowering kale, and cut flowering kale varieties.California Spring Trials - OHP, Inc.

In addition, OHP showcased weed control plots featuring our new pre-emergent herbicide Marengo®. The plots highlighted results of treatments on hoop house floors and around the perimeter of greenhouses. "We had a lot of interest in all our work but the Marengo results really wowed attendees," notes OHP Senior Technical Manager Dave Barcel, who participated in his 18th Spring Trial event.

In addition, OHP demonstrated the effect of its PGR Augeo® on both poinsettias (Dummen Prima Red) in place of a pinch and on double Knock Out® Roses (sponsored by Northwest Horticulture). "We hope to continue to showcase our research results at the spring trials," notes Barcel. "It's a great opportunity for growers to touch and feel plant materials and see first-hand what we're doing in the way of research."
