Squash / Cucurbit

Your squash crop has had significant years of yield but lately powdery mildew, early flowers, pests and blossom maturity have caused a substantial loss. You are looking for uniform size, reduced chemical inputs and well-shaped squash plants that produce over and over again.

Where do you find a product that is natural with this kind of results? VEGRO® will do this and more, exceeding your expectations every time.

Problem

Your crop is continuously exposed to stress and disease which alter the quality of your yield. The cost for more chemicals is cutting into profit margins and you want to improve on every aspect of your squash. Skin color, uniform sizes with an accelerated maturity would certainly be desired. But most of the time this requires more chemicals. Take a look at VEGRO®.

Solution

VEGRO® for squash is the answer. Our products generate a nice homogenous color with substantial early maturity and vibrant, rich stacks and leaves.

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

VEGRO® is a new generation of potent bio stimulants based on natural and concentrated seaweed marine active ingredients. VEGRO® is formulated to promote:

  • Quality yields (x1.5 more ref/agronomic study)
  • Faster growth with early maturity rate
  • Solid quality flowering
  • Well balanced crop between vegetation and fruit-set
  • Reduced early drop and loss
  • Improved efficacy of fungicides (-64% powder mildew, -47% downy mildew)
  • Overall crop health
  • Anti-stress (negative stress)

VEGRO® is neither a fertilizer or fungicide but is a natural bio stimulant that works in combination with your fertilizer and fungicide. VEGRO® helps reduce the need for chemical input and improves the efficacy of your fungicides.

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).
