Influence of Albit on sweet pepper was examined in field trials of All-Russia Institute
of Vegetable Selection and Seed Breeding on pepper var. Lastochka in 2001 and
2003. Averagely, according to results of trials, treatment with Albit performed accordingly
to approved application recommendations increased sweet pepper yield by 36.0
centners/hectare (360 g/m² or 16.3% over control). Besides yield increase,
Albit increases germination, turgor of plants and resistance to adverse environmental
conditions, height of plants, improves wax bloom and provides more simultaneous ripening
of peppers. In trials on lettuce, effectiveness of Albit was not inferior to that of
standard formulation based on epibrassinolide, Pseudomonas aureofaciens and
Treatment of sweet pepper plants should be performed in accordance
with general application recommendations for vegetables.
