The Grower standard is [T1], also called untreated. Every following treatments from [T2] to [T8] have been placed on top of the grower standard [T1].

[T1] Grow. Std Untreated

• [T2] Synth. Hormone M

• [T3] Synth. Hormone R

• [T4] Synth. Hormone S

• [T5] Nutritional complex

• [T6] AA Complex

• [T7] Microbes complex

[T8] Vegro®


Director of the study: David Conger (Crop and Soil sciences)

Supervisor: W. Scott Montfort (supervisor)

Agronomic Protocol
  • Variety considered into this trial: ARHHY, BPNT, AKA: Arachis hypogaea, Peanut = USA
  • Measurements:
    • • Yield (Lb of Kernels) by plot
    • • Vigor (row 300 Ft)
    • • Count Plant by emergence (row 300 Ft)
    • • Plant Format: Height and width
  • Plot size:
  • Density per plot:

Study Results

+20% YIELD

Vegro Vs Grower Std

+15% Better

Than Synthetic hormones

+17% Better

Than Amino Acid complex


Chemical residue


Phyto Toxicity

100% Natural

Active compounds

Piece count and weight count and calibration, directly made by the grower himself.


+20% Quality yield (kernels in Lb per plot) Vs the Grower standard.

+15% (Avg), Vegro® is more efficient than Synthetic hormones considered into this trial.

+17% (Avg), Vegro® is more efficient than Amino Acid complex considered in this trial.

Except the yield, Vegro® compared to the Grower Standard has the less incidence on the size of the crop. 

Vegro® is significantly the best treatement in this study. It brings the best ratio of Kernel per acre, About +20% extra yield,

and it demonstrates that the energy brought by Vegro® is oriented toward the fertilization process of the Kernel. 

With Vegro®, More peanut is not equal to more vegetation... In other word the money spent for Vegro® is the best return on investment.

Objectives: Agronomic study conducted in 2018 by the University of Georgia on peanuts with the goal to evaluate the impact on the yield, different products supposed to improve it.

YIELD (Lb per Plot)
Plant Count Emergence (PLAEM)
  • With Vegro® the energy is getting concentrated on the fertilization process of the pods than the vegetation.
  • Plant emergence counted on a row of 300 Ft and replicated 6 times for each treatment.
Plant evolution of the height
  • Measured on a randomized row of 300 Ft
  • Replicated 6 times by treatment
Plant evolution of the Width
  • Measured on a randomized row of 300 Ft
  • Replicated 6 times by treatment
  • Vegro® is showing an enhancement on the canopy width.
  • Most likely because of the number of pods generated underground.
