2019 Sweet Peppers Demo Trail with Primacy ALPHA Technology

2019 Sweet Peppers Demo Trail with Primacy ALPHA Technology

Verdesian northern California technical sales representative Mark Allen performed a limited demo trail of Primacy ALPHA on sweet peppers to showcase the technology’s ability to promote early rapid growth and development on specialty crops.

The demo trail consisted of 10 sweet pepper plants, five treated with Primacy ALPHA, five untreated.

 

 

A 1.5% solution of Primacy ALPHA was used on the treated the sweet peppers via soil application. Upon the initial application of Primacy ALPHA on five of the seedlings, all 10 seedlings, both treated and untreated, where all the same age and relatively the same size.

After a thorough watering of all 10 plants, a follow-up treatment of half an ounce of volume/volume % solution of Primacy ALPHA on each of five treated plants.

A subsequent foliar Primacy ALPHA treatment with a fine mist sprayer with the full 1.5%, volume/volume was done two weeks later on the same treated five plants.

Comparing side-by-side, all five Primacy ALPHA plants had similar contrasting growth versus the untreated plants, with all treated plants physical size clearly larger compared to the untreated five plants.

A full month after the initial treatment and two weeks following the foliar treatment, the Primacy ALPHA plants demonstrated significant physical growth development over the untreated plants.

All 10 plants were in full sunshine, unprotected. All plants experienced a typical April warming trend for the first three weeks followed by these unusual rainstorms and cool weather as of the May 22. All 10 plants were moved from their pots and trays to a cement pad to avoid waterlogged conditions.
