Bell Peppers (Solanacae)

Growing peppers (solanacae) for the commercial market can be a daunting task and farmers all over the country are experiencing low quality yields, oddly shaped fruit, losses due to pest and disease. These require more chemical inputs and this is costly. Where do you find a product that is natural that can boost the overall health of your pepper plants? VEGRO® is the answer.

Problem

Higher production numbers and a uniform, vibrant yield is always desired but with all the various stresses and disease this can be complicated. Maybe your crop is maturing at different rates and this makes harvest nearly impossible. Or maybe your pepper plants look anemic and the leaves are yellowing and do not look healthy.  Promoting healthy flowering is important. A natural product that can generate an overall healthy crop is the answer.

Solution

VEGRO® for peppers (solanacae) is the answer and will exceed your expectations! VEGRO® produces a nice homogenous color with substantial early maturity. With an improved quality yield you will be the farmer others are talking about.

VEGRO® is a new generation of potent bio stimulants based on natural and concentrated seaweed marine active ingredients. VEGRO® has been formulated to generate the following:

  • Quality yields and faster growth
  • Uniform sized and shaped fruit
  • Well balance crop between vegetation and fruit-set
  • Reduce early drop and loss
  • Improved efficacy of the fungicides
  • Improved overall health of crop
  • Anti-stress ( negative stress)

VEGRO® is a not a fertilizer or a fungicide but works in combination with your disease and promotion products. It also helps reduce the amount of chemical inputs and improve the efficacy of your fungicides.

VEGRO® Bell Peppers 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-fecundation, fecundation and post-fecundation natural processes. It is at the fecundation 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).
