Fixing Blossom End Rot
I have read most of the posts I can find about the challenges of BER, especially with paste tomatoes grown in the GH. But other than choosing "resistant" varieties of veggies, are there other adjustments that you have found useful? My science brain says that if BER is simply a calcium issue, then adequate calcium in the soil mix should fix the problem. But as I research further, it appears that other factors can affect the plants as well, such as excessive watering, the timing of watering, soil pH and other mineral balance. Any thoughts on how to prevent BER? How do commercial growers deal with it? My only experience with BER first hand is in my outdoor beds and was easily corrected by the addition of lime to my soil. Why is it so different in the GH? Thanks!
