How to Prevent Blossom-End Rot

How to Prevent Blossom-End Rot

Many growers think that the ugly issue pictured right is a disease, when in fact it is a calcium-

deficiency or blossom-end rot. Tomatoes need calcium and available water to prevent blossom-end rot. Unfortunately, many of those same growers will be tricked into thinking that a topical spray will prevent this issue, when the real problem lies below the plant in the soil. To prevent blossom-end rot, growers must begin feeding the soil with the nutrients they need to thrive. Just as humans need nutrients to survive, plants need them too but most soils to not have all of the required nutrients.

That is why fertilizing the soil with a complete fertilizer like HyR BRIX® will eliminate not only blossum-end rot, but also common diseases plants are plagued with if they do not have of the nutrients the require. Learn more about HyR BRIX® Tomato Fertilizer at
