Oct. 31, 2012, Walnut Creek, CA — Fine Americas Inc. has registered Configure, a pure benzyladenine (6-BA) plant growth regulator, in Canada.

The product is registered for use on a number of ornamental crops, including Christmas cactus and purple coneflower. It comes in a concentrated, ready-to mix formulation that can be applied as a foliar spray.

“This is great news for Canadian ornamental growers,” said Greg Johnson, president of Fine Americas. “Configure is truly a one-of-a-kind product for increasing lateral and basal branching and improving plant appearance and marketability. In addition, it promotes flowering and helps growers produce more compact plants that are easier to transport, manage and display.”


Fine Americas’ technical services manager, Kevin Forney, recommends that growers trial Configure on a limited basis before widespread use, as individual plant response can vary based on variety, growing medium, light, ambient temperature and other factors.

Configure and other Fine Americas’ plant growth regulators are distributed in Canada by N.M. Bartlett, located in Beamsville, Ont.
