asprin solution to boost tomato plant health?

April 13, 2013

Went to class today and one of the local growers advised to 1)put one asprin in the bottom of the planting hole when transplanting seedlings, and, 2) dissolve an asprin in water, and spray the leaves with the solution once a week! Seems people think the salicylic acid in asprin mimics a tomato hormone that jump starts the tomato plant's immune response and thus prevents disease. Has anyone tried this? I never heard of it before today...please send your results if you've tried it.
