Vegetables

Filled with essential vitamins, minerals, and other key nutritional needs, vegetables are the foundation of diets around the world. These agricultural crops help to provide food and income to the world in a wide array of colors, shapes, flavors, and growing conditions. Some cultures and regions even encourage all vegetarian diets.

Artichokes

Artichoke (Cynara cardunculus, variety scolymus), also called globe artichoke or French artichoke, is a large thistle-like perennial plant of the aster family (Asteraceae) grown for its edible flower buds. The thick bracts and the receptacle of the immature flower head, known as the heart, are a culinary delicacy enjoyed in numerous cuisines. Most artichokes grown worldwide are cultivated in France, Italy, and Spain, while California provides nearly 100% of the US crop.

Plume Moth

Chewing pests, such as the larval stages of the artichoke Plume Moth, can be challenging and cause considerable crop loss. Significant damage can occur as a result of constant vegetative feeding by these pests. Control is typically achieved with contact or ingestion-based insecticides such as Bacillus thuringiensis. The addition of organic compliant Nu-Film-P® to these chemistries can allow for more consistent deposition and increased retention on the leaf surface. This increase in deposition and retention has the potential to increase insecticide efficacy.

Systemic Pesticide Applications

Systemic Pesticide Applications

Plant health can be negatively impacted by pests in the environment in several different ways. Each of these potential pests also require their own unique solution for control. Exit ® has been purposefully formulated to be combined with pesticides that depend upon rapid uptake and translocation of the active ingredient. Pesticides such as those with systemic or translaminar activity as well as those with hormonal or plant growth regulator effects are particularly well suited for tank mixing with Exit®. The unique ability to increase the speed at which translocation occurs is what defines Exit®.

Abiotic Stress

Abiotic Stress

Environmental or abiotic stress has the potential to negatively impact plant health, productivity, crop quality and yield. With the unique formulation of Greenstim®, these abiotic stressors can be mitigated via a multifaceted approach to plant health. Water retention, overall plant metabolism, as well as general plant recovery can be significantly approved with the addition of Greenstim®. By managing abiotic stress effects, yield losses can be drastically minimized. Best effects are observed when applied prior to stressful conditions

Asparagus

Thought to be native to the eastern Mediterranean and Asia Minor, Asparagus is a cultivated perennial vegetable grown for its succulent spring stalks. Belonging to the genus of the family Asparagaceae, it was widely used in the past as a frequent medicinal “cure-all.” Today, the most common and commercially important variety is the garden asparagus (Asparagus officinalis).

Bell Peppers

Bell pepper (Capsicum annuum), also called sweet pepper or capsicum, are a pepper cultivar in the nightshade family (Solanaceae). These peppers are grown for their thick, mild fruits. Frequently found in a range of colors such as green, yellow, orange, and red, all these varieties are the same crop just picked at varying levels of ripening. Bell peppers are unique in the fact that unlike other members of the Capsicum family, they do not produce the compound called capsaicin, which is the compound responsible for the burning sensation felt when spicy peppers are consumed. Bell peppers score a zero on the Scoville unit scale.

Blossom End Rot

Blossom End Rot

This nutritional disorder typically occurs when plants are growing rapidly, and the first fruits are developing. When fruit cells breakdown due to a lack of calcium, dark blemishes appear on the blossom-end of affected fruits. These may enlarge until the entire bottom of the fruit becomes dark, shrunken, and leathery. Blossom-end rot is a common nutritional deficiency caused by a lack of calcium in rapidly growing fruits or vegetables. Calcium is constantly taken up by roots, but it is first transported to growing points within the plant. Cell Force® provides a necessary boost of rapidly available calcium, potentially improving fruit quality and mitigating the risk of blossom-end rot.

Sun Scald

Sun Scald

Sunlight, while a necessary part of photosynthesis and healthy plant growth, can also have damaging effects on crop quality. When crop canopies are suddenly opened, sometimes because of disease or harvesting practices, exposed fruit can be damaged by sun scald. Reflections® can not only serve as a calcium supplement, but also a reflectant. This allows for reduced rates of sun damage and a protection of the quality of fruit harvested.

Broccoli/Cauliflower

Broccoli (Brassica oleracea L. var itallica) and cauliflower (Brassica oleracea L. var botrytis) are both members of the Brassicaceae or Cruciferae family, also known as the mustard family. Typically, these crops prefer cool temperatures, full sun, sandy soil and slightly acidic to neutral soil pH. Broccoli is hardy and can germinate in cold weather as low as 40º F. Fall planting is recommended if you live in a warm climate. Cauliflower, however, is not the hardiest of brassica plants. It can tolerate a minor frost, but a hard frost can kill your entire crop. Cool, moist conditions are ideal for cauliflower plants.

Cabbage

Cabbage (Brassica oleracea) is a vegetable and fodder plant of the mustard family (Brassicaceae). Various agricultural forms of this plant have been developed by long cultivation from the wild cabbage. Cabbage grows best in cool weather and soil rich in organic matter. The best soil pH for cabbage is 6.5 to 6.8. California, Wisconsin, New York, Florida and Texas account for more than 75% of the US cabbage production.

Pre-emergent applications of herbicides are widely utilized to cut down on potential weed populations. These weeds can rob a crop of yield potential. Once a pre-emergent herbicide is applied to the soil, the environment naturally begins to break that chemistry down in a plethora of ways. Sustain® is recommended as a tank mix to help reduce some of these environmental effects, such as UV degradation and leaching of the herbicide, thereby helping to potentially increase the effectiveness of pre-emergent herbicides applied.
