    Try using Sea-Crop at 16 oz/acre or 1:25 drench every 5 days for 30 days, then weekly throughout growing season. This will also boost mineral content giving the fruit better keeping quality, taste and other fungal resistance besides boosting production. See for veggie program-also qualifies for organic production.Enhancing the soil biology will prevent bacterial, fungal and insect infestations. I used this on organic greenhouse tomatoes and stopped blight and got a crop
