The vegetable market is extensive although the vegetables are grown on much smaller acreage than field crops. This market includes crops grown and marketed for two main segments – the fresh vegetable market and the processed and frozen vegetable market. The fresh vegetable market generally has much higher quality requirements and thus higher returns. Therefore, it is critical for the grower to optimize the quality and yield of vegetables.
How We Service The Vegetables Market
Balchem Plant Nutrition’s agronomists have extensive experience in the vegetable market including tomatoes, chilis, onions, potatoes, squash, cucumbers, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts. Throughout the world, we have resolved nutritional challenges resulting in better production, quality, consistency and improved shelf life of vegetables. Calcium nutrition in vegetables is a particular challenge to growers. Metalosate® Calcium has proven to alleviate calcium issues for growers.
We highly suggest and promote leaf samples frequently, using our unique plant tissue analysis T.E.A.M.® reports which provides a focused approach to balance plant nutrition. This approach provides significant relief to growers as vegetable crops frequently suffer from unbalanced nutritional issues.
