Problem

Your crop is continuously exposed to various and numerous stresses and disease which may alter the quality of the yield. This can be costly and cause your harvest to be late to market. With the strawberry market bring so competitive, every single aspect must be improved on but finding a natural product that will promote flawless skin, uniform size, vibrant color and sweet taste can be challenging.

Solution

VEGRO® for strawberries is the answer and will exceed your expectations. VEGRO® generates a nice homogenous color with a substantial early maturity rate.

More quality yield + Healthier crop + More natural  =  More money and better return on investment!

Think VEGRO® now, the new generation of potent bio-stimulants based on natural and concentrated seaweed marine active ingredients. VEGRO® has been specifically formulated to help and promote:

  • Quality yields (+20% overall, ref/agronomic data) and faster growth
  • More efficacy of the fungicides (+30%)
  • More quality flowering
  • Well balanced crop between vegetation and fruit-set
  • Better shaped fruit
  • Larger and more uniform sizes (better pack-out)
  • Reduces early drop or losses
  • Promotes maturity (+43% first 3 harvests ref/agronomic data)
  • Improves the efficacy of the fungicides (for Botrytis and Powdery mildew ref/agronomic data)
  • Improves the overall crop health
  • Best anti stress on the market (negative stress)

VEGRO® is not a fertilizer or fungicide. It is a natural bio stimulant which works in combination with your fungicides and fertilizers. It improves the efficacy of your fungicides and reduces the need for chemical inputs.

VEGRO® Program

VEGRO® helps to restore and/or to improve cell's differentiation, cell's division and cell's enlargement or, in other words, to safely grow more and better. These applications increase and secure the pre-fertilization, fertilization and post-fertilization natural processes. It is at the fertilization that all natural genetic codes are set, it is the moment that everything is getting decided, then cell's elongation or enlargement it is the process to fill the cells. The quality of the flowering, the fruit-set, this is where you will get more fruits, more sizes, better shaped fruit. VEGRO® is also very performant at cell's enlargement and promotes so nice uniform sizes and earlier maturity. VEGRO® also produces another significant effect by promoting and improving the crop’s photosynthesis activity. The result: firmer fruit and less early fruit drop with an early maturity (nutrient uptake). It also improves the efficacy of your fungicides (proven efficacy, please refer to agronomic data).
