Andatech Nutrition Program for Pepper (Greenhouse Dripping Method)

Andatech Nutrition Program for Pepper (Dripping Method) Increase the fruit quality and resistance

Pepper is one of the most varied and widely used foods in the world. From the various colors to the various tastes, peppers are an important spic commodity and an integral part of many cuisines.Pepper production requires highly intensive nutrition management, production and marketing skills, and a significant investment. Ideal soil pH 6.5~7.5, and enviornmental temperature 25℃~32℃.?

Increase the productivty of Pepper by Andatech.

1. Topdressing with Volger Balance humic acid water soluble fertilizer when seedling stage, promoting root development and vegetative growth. On the other hand, AndaPro balance series contributes a comprehensive N-P-K nutrient for the whole vegetative stage. Meanwhile, Caswell and Magnesium sulfate are also good choice to meet the necessary Ca and Mg in a low cost.
2. As can be seen from Table1 and Table2, there is an upward trend for Potash
requirement, but the AndaPro balance series is still a good choice for this period. Meanwhile, foliar spraying with AndaFocus to promote flower bud differentiation and increase flowering and fruit setting rate.
3. The fruit set period is a transitional period from vegetative growth to reproductive growth, large amount of Potassium is needed. In this condition, using K Power to supplement nutrition in time to facilitate a smooth transition and prevent falling fruit.
4. During the first harvest, Kpower promotes nutrient distribution and transformation in fruits, promoting fruit enlargement and increasing yield. In this time, plants grow more prosperous, transpiration increases, and more nutrients are absorbed. Increase in the amount of water soluble fertilizer appropriately.
5. Continue to complement Volger High K to stimulate new roots and improve fertilizer utilization. High-potassium AndaPro10-10-30+TE fertilizer help to promote the conversion of nutrients into fruit and promote fruit enlargement. Meanwhile, it contributes to supply the necessary Nitrogen and Phosphorus for root and flower. Also it’s necessary not only to pay attention to reproductive growth and yield increase, also the vegetative growth. In the
same time, trace elements should be added to the leaves to prevent early deterioration of the plants. In this period , Caswell is effeciency to supplement the Calcium for preventing Blossom end rot

Increase the productivity by Greenhouse dripping method.

Reducing the chance of FRUIT DISORDERS occurrence

Significant Disease, Blossom end rot (BER) for Peppers

BER occurs mainly during hot weather conditions. Fruits are affected in their early stages of development (10-15 days after fruit set); the cause is related to the rate of calcium supply to the fruit, which is lower than the rate of the fruit growth. This results in the collapse of certain tissues in the fruit,demonstrated as BER. Factors that favor BER are directly related to limited calcium uptake and transport to the fruit, like high salinity, high temperatures and high growing intensity and water shortage.

How to prevent:
1.Maintain adequate irrigation, especially during periods of hot, dry, and windy weather.
2.Test soil for calcium levels before planting and if needed add lime or dolomite prior to preparing plant beds.In this condition, Anda Caswell is the good choice to prevent the BER. Caswell is a more ideal source to supply Calcium to the plants. The calcium is chelated by sugar alcohol, which is the only substance that can carry minerals to the plant body, making the
transportation faster from the roots to fruits. In this way, it’s good choice which is efficiently to prevent the BER caused by calcium efficiently.
