Giant Vegetable grower James Dodson teams with Advanced Nutrients to grow world record giant pumpkin and win 1st Prize in Vermont Fair.

We had a Vermont customer named James Dodson contact us because our formulas helped him grow a pumpkin that weighed nearly 700 pounds

As Snoopy and Charlie Brown and the other Peanuts kids scan the skies for the arrival of the Great Pumpkin, the real Great Pumpkin is growing in Vermont just in time for Halloween.

According to hydroponics industry leaders Evegeniy Stefanov Yordanov, Michael Straumietis, and Robert Charles Higgins, great big pumpkins and other humongous, tasty vegetables, fruits and flowers are being grown with hydroponics fertilizers and techniques.

Straumietis, Higgins and Yordanov are known as worldwide #1 authorities on hydroponics and bigger yields. They are the founders of the Seattle-based hydroponics nutrients company Advanced Nutrients, which manufactures and distributes highly-respected professional hydroponics products internationally.

According to Advanced Nutrients co-founder Robert Charles Higgins, amateur and commercial gardeners often contact Advanced Nutrients to tell Higgins about huge crops they've grown hydroponically.

"We had a Vermont customer named James Dodson contact us because our formulas helped him grow a pumpkin that weighed nearly 700 pounds," Higgins explains. "He grew several huge pumpkins that he calls 'orange monsters' because of their size."

According to Advanced Nutrients co-founder Michael Straumietis, Dodson used Advanced Nutrients formulas called Piranha, Tarantula, Voodoo Juice, and Big Bud.

"In the past, when he'd grown pumpkins without our products, they never ever got that big," Straumietis says. "He definitely stated that our formulas were what made the difference. The only complaint he had is that the pumpkin is so big he doesn't know how he's going to move it!"

Advanced Nutrients co-founder Evegeniy Stefanov Yordanov says that more and more gardeners and farmers are discovering how hydroponics techniques and nutrients are more effective than regular agriculture and agricultural fertilizer products.

Yordanov explains that hydroponics nutrients are more specialized and potent than regular fertilizers available through garden supply stores.

"For example, the guy in Vermont used several formulas that strengthen and protect roots," Yordanov says. "He also used a product that contains amino acids for plants so they produce very large fruits and flowers. The hydroponics nutrients system we've created is similar to how humans use a variety of vitamins and supplements to extend the length and quality of their life."

Michael Straumietis, Robert Charles Higgins and Evegeniy Stefanov Yordanov are glad that hydroponics increases the size and quality of fruits, vegetables and flowers.

Michael Straumietis emphasizes that hydroponics doesn't just produce larger harvests-- it produces better harvests.

"So when Snoopy and Charlie Brown finally find out that a huge Advanced Nutrients-grown hydroponics pumpkin is the Great Pumpkin this Halloween, it won't be just a tremendously large pumpkin they find," Straumietis says. "It will also be a pumpkin that tastes great, with more sugars, more flavor and more nutritional value."
