New Mexico Chili Grower Increases Yields by 25% with Stoller Products

Share Article

When growing chilies for your own private label sauce, exceptional quality chilies and lots of them are required.

Randy Garay of New Mexico has seen the impact of Stoller products throughout the growing season.

It's about how much you make and keep at the end of the year. And Stoller products help us make and keep more.

Grower Randy Garay of Garay Farms and M.A. & Sons processing has used Stoller's Root Power™ and Bio-Forge® for over five years to help increase his chili crop yield and enhance the chili quality.

By applying Root Power and Bio-Forge in the drip irrigation system, Garay sees the impact throughout the growing season. The plants are a deep green, have a larger root mass, and are healthier in general - increasing the plant's ability to resist insect and disease pressures. In fact, Garay is able to stretch out the irrigation process allowing the chili plants to retain more blooms - resulting in more chilies. Plus chilies treated with Root Power and Bio-Forge are larger, uniform in size and have meatier flesh.

Garay calculates that in the past his chili crop averaged 3200 lbs per acre. Now, with the use of Root Power and Bio-Forge, those same acres average around 4000 lbs per acre - translating into a $600 to $700 return per acre.

"We look at the end result. It's not about how much your spend," states Garay. "It's about how much you make and keep at the end of the year. And Stoller products help us make and keep more."

Root Power is a proven, patented micronutrient blend that balances plant hormones to accelerate root growth and enhance plant health. Bio-Forge is an antioxidant with growth-enhancing co-factors for all crops. Bio-Forge makes crops and plants stronger and better able to live through a number of stressful conditions.
