Tomato for winter early flowering



GM friends,
I will plant tomato Bayer US 440 variety on 15th Dec’18. To avoid April harvest due to extreme heat, can I prepone most of flowering till March by ethrel treatment or any other way? Kindly advice.

You can go ahead with sprays of chemicals like Florex (GeoLife) that would accelerate your flowering and fruiting.
These are relatively less harmful to final produce as compared to Ethrel.

Also, do ensure that right nutrient management is maintained.
