PhycoTerra® Improves Soil Health and Yields for Peppers

Global demand, fueled by strong consumer influence, continues to sustain strong market opportunities for a variety of peppers including bell, jalapeño, habanero and chile arbol.

 

To meet these demands, producers must build and maintain a healthy and productive soil profile—a challenge not easily met given the host of detrimental farming practices commonly ascribed to pepper production.

 

Extensive tillage and fumigation  are all barriers to building soil health that producers must overcome if they are to continue to meet both the quality and quantity demands of the marketplace. The studies below show how PhycoTerra® helps to improve soil health and the microbiome to improve yield and marketability in pepper growth.

Improve Marketable Yields through Improved Soil Health

At Heliae® Agriculture, we continue to invest in technology and research central to our core mission of creating effective, sustainable and regenerative products for growers around the world while enhancing the health of soil, plants, animals and humans, alike.

In a recent research study, PhycoTerra® significantly improved marketable yields above grower standard in both chile arbol and jalapeño pepper crops. The addition of PhycoTerra® to the growing programs provided the superfood needed to build and foster a productive soil microbiome to provide high return on investment in both improved soil health and marketable pepper yields.
