Tomatoes are also one of the crops where VESTA from Sobec is widely used among growers.
In a study we have been doing with one of our clients in 2013, we measured VESTA against another supplier, and the results are very interesting.
Not only were the yield more than 20% higher on the VESTA treated crops than the not treated crops. Due to the increased quality the grower also got a 10% rise in what was paid per ton in one variety and a corresponding 5% rise in what was paid per ton in another variety.
So the total value of the tomato harvest increased up to 50% by using VESTA.

The benefits of VESTA are also seen in the production of peppers. The pictures below are from a Spanish farm in La Mancha in September 2022. In this case the VESTA treated peppers had much more new fruits than the not treated peppers. Compared to the not treated peppers, the VESTA treated peppers had much stronger cell walls and 8% higher nutrient density. The application of VESTA resulted in a 40-60% higher yield than the peppers without VESTA. The farm harvested the VESTA treated peppers right up until the frost came.

The VESTA treated peppers and the not treated peppers are the same variety and have all been planted at the same time under the same conditions.
