goebbertpumpkins.jpgLloyd Goebbert and his brother Lee are responsible for Goebbert's Pumpkin Patch & Goebbert's Farm & Garden Center near Hampshire, Illinois, between Chicago and Rockford. They raise some very excellent looking vegetables including tomatoes, peppers, sweet corn, and of course pumpkins. Loyd feels that foliar spraying with Growers Mineral Solutions (GMS) helps with plant health.

Lloyd said that his pumpkins receive about 10 gallons per acre of GMS for the season. They usually start spraying around July 4 and continue spraying until about September 1. On average they use about 1 gallon per acre per week of GMS. To learn more about Goebbert's Pumpkin Patch, go to
