Dr. A.E. Nightingale was one of the first professional horticulturists to recognize the ability of Spray-N-Grow to boost yields while at the same time increasing produce quality. He began conducting field trials with Spray-N-Grow in 1985. His first trial on Yolo Wonder bell peppers fascinated him and encouraged him to do more work with Spray-N-Grow. Dr. Nightingale conducted dozens of field trials with Spray-N-Grow and assisted other researchers as well. Dr. Nightingale concluded, “Considering the cost per acre and the over-all benefits, it is difficult to find a reason not to use Spray-N-Grow.” His research has been invaluable to our family owned company.
Dr. Nightingale received his Bachelors’ degree at Rutgers University and his Masters and PhD degrees at Texas A&M University. He was on staff at Texas A&M for many years, conducting research and teaching horticulture students until retiring in 1989. He was honored with Professor Emeritus Horticulture status.
