Problem

The lettuce market is highly competitive and all farmers are looking for uniform hearts and head sizes with vibrant color and texture. But disease and pests plague your crop, and this causes you to spend more and more on chemical inputs, which cuts into your profit margins.

Solution

VEGRO® for lettuce is the answer and will exceed your expectations! VEGRO® produces a nice homogenous color with substantial early maturity. VEGRO® is the product that farmers all over the country are using to improve the overall health of their crops.

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 new generation of potent bio stimulants based on natural and concentrated seaweed marine active ingredients. VEGRO® helps reduce the amount of chemical inputs and is not a fertilizer or a fungicide.  Click here to read our agronomic studies on different crops that demonstrate scientifically the performance of our products.

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-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).
