Improving Pepper Quality and Yield

Norman Thomas, president of Thomas Produce, Boca Raton, Fla.

Florida pepper growers know the value of maintaining pepper quality. Norman Thomas, president of Thomas Produce, Boca Raton, Fla., uses effective insect control to establish strong crops for reliable production.

Avoiding worm and insect damage contributes to better canopies, which protects fruit from sunscald and promotes improved pepper quality, uniformity and size. More production from each acre of high-value land helps Thomas satisfy consumers with desirable peppers.

The EPA registered label contains the statement, “This product is highly toxic to bees exposed to direct treatment on blooming crops or weeds.
