Sygenta positive about new yellow pepper
Last year Syngenta introduced the yellow pepper variety Y08385. The good results mean that there are now around 20 ha of this variety and there are several locations where there is a large trial, the breeder says.
Syngenta says that the cultivation of Y08385 went without problems. “The variety shows hardly any deviating plants, which results in a very uniform batch of plants with equal heads. Furthermore, Y08385 has a horizontal leaf position. To guarantee uniformity, we recommend that you expand more in time. Keep sufficient speed in the etmals, this results in uniform plants with healthy roots. “
According to Syngenta, the variety develops well after planting. “We see that the rooting in the mat goes smoothly. Among other things, the strong roots ensure fruit quality and uniform coarseness in the summer. In the last weeks of 2019, we had less light compared to previous years. From January onwards We are at a better level at the moment, and most crops are now fruiting and we see that Y08385 produces strong buds, certainly in comparison with the standard varieties, making the settlement somewhat easier. the 24-hour temperature is gradually reduced by maintaining a larger D / N difference. “
Too low 24-hour / night temperatures encourage coarse flowers, Syngenta adds. “This is further enhanced when growing on gutters because the mat temperature cools down deeper during the night. Keep looking at the knob position and do not sink further into temperature where this is not necessary. When the fruits are well set, the temperature can rise again slightly. “
Here is a point of attention immediately: many companies are testing this variety and cannot manage it specifically. “If the temperature remains low due to the setting of the standard variety, this can have negative consequences for the fruits of Y08385. The fruits can become slow and heavy and also the flower arrangement of set two can become too strong. considered slow, while this can be perfectly accommodated with a specific control.
Finally, Syngenta advises growers to keep one fruit / stem with the first plant. Above that it is best to empty 2 armpits, after which the plant can regulate itself. “Prevent the fruits of the 1st setting from becoming too heavy by making sufficient speed. This also has a positive effect on the growth rate. In order to maintain the same heads, fruits from remaining stems are best removed. Generatively steer towards the second setting but avoid buds become too coarse. The first and second set together may not be more than 20 pieces / m². Top on one armpit, avoid fruit on side shoots. “
