Consider the materials.

  • Analyze the water source and manage alkalinity.
  • Select a uniform, high-quality growing medium with a low and well-mixed nutrient charge.
  • Consider tray design.
  • Use seeds with high germination rates and acceptable pelleting materials.

Promote uniform emergence.

  • Sow seeds during sunny periods.
  • Fill trays uniformly.
  • Place seeds uniformly (in the center of the dibble).
  • Provide a warm temperature (68 to 70°F at night).
  • Control ants and mice.

Promote uniform growth.

  • Monitor fertilizer salts in the medium and leach with water from overhead when necessary.
  • Continue to analyze water and manage alkalinity when necessary.
  • Clip properly.
  • Manage insects and diseases.

Prevent stand loss.

  • Provide proper ventilation and airflow to prevent heat injury.
  • Avoid early seeding, high nitrogen rates, and hot daytime temperatures that promote stem rot diseases.
  • Fumigate trays with methyl bromide or purchase new trays.
