Vigo

Vigo has

  • 17 essential organic amino acids
  • 17 essential organic amino acids.
  • proven to be extremely effective when used in conjunction with organic fertilizers

Super growth enhancement agent. A foliar or drench additive mixed with water. Once applied is immediately taken up by the plant

It’s NOT a fertilizer!

  • Contains a starch like substance called Non-Structural Carbo Hydrates which supplies all the energy to best perform and effectively accomplish all necessary chemical procedures within plant or tree.
  • Has Organic Acids  amongst others are growth hormones

One could liken Vigo to smoke in a liquid form which is taken up immediately by the plant {I am sure you have noticed the phenomenal growth in for example grass after fire passed by a day or three before!}

Water solution in the same form as moisture in your soil.

VIGO APPLICATION PROTOCOLS

As per the trials done across the plant spectrum, the application rates have been divided into the following categories:

Agriculture

  • Crops (General):
    • Seeds/dry land crops/dry root seedlings/ bulbs and tubers, etc – soak overnight in a 2ml/1lt Vigo/water solution (1:500 Vigo/water solution ) and plant the next day, or apply as a slight stream, drip, or fine mist of undiluted Vigo onto the planted seedbed and water in lightly.  The undiluted application should be applied at 1Lt/15m². Dry-land crops need not be watered in but premature germination may occur without rain/water.  Dry root seedlings have however shown good production results when soaked in a 1:500 solution for a few hours only, but overnight is preferable.
    • Seedling plugs – Drench as and when required with a solution of 2ml Vigo/1lt water solution after planting.
    • If you’re using other fertilizers, your fertilizer application can be reduced by up to 50%, and apply with either a solution of 1:1600 Vigo/water via the drip-line system 2 x weekly, or foliar spray at 8Lts Vigo/Ha every 2 weeks in a mix tank of between 400 and 600Lts water increasing the application to 12.5Lts/Ha every 2 weeks until just before harvest.  Don’t miss any of these applications, but there is no need to re-apply should it rain shortly after application.
    • Vigo can be introduced any time during the plant cycle.
  • Vegetables (including strawberries):
    • Seeds/dry root seedlings – soak seeds overnight in a 2ml/1lt Vigo/water solution (1:500 Vigo/water solution) and plant the next day, or apply as a slight stream, drip, or fine mist of undiluted Vigo onto the planted seedbed at a rate of 1Lt/15m² and water in lightly.
    • Thereafter apply 1 drop of Vigo to 160ml’s water and drench whenever watering is required.
    • From transplant stage onwards, apply either a solution of 1:1600 Vigo:water mix via the drip-line system 2 x weekly, or foliar spray at 8Lts Vigo/Ha every 2 weeks in a mix tank of between 400 and 600Lts increasing the application to 12.5Lts/Ha until just before harvest.  Don’t miss any of these applications, but there is no need to re-apply should it rain shortly after application. No need for any surfactants or wetting agents. The previous fertilizer applications can also be reduced by as much as 50%.  Vigo performs best at this reduction in fertilizer protocol.
  • Herbs:
    • Follow the protocol for vegetables!
  • Fruit trees:
    • Cuttings – Dip cuttings into undiluted Vigo and plant.
    • Seeds – soak seeds overnight in a 2ml/1lt Vigo/water solution (1:500 Vigo/water solution) and plant the next day, or apply as a slight stream, drip, or a fine mist of undiluted Vigo onto the planted seedbed and water in lightly.
    • Thereafter apply 1 drop of Vigo to 160ml’s water and drench whenever watering is required.
    • Increase application accordingly per mass size of plant.
    • At transplant time apply 10ml undiluted Vigo around each tree, thereafter apply 15ml per tree on monthly basis, increasing application as the tree grows to an application of no more than 50ml per tree per month.  Alternatively, apply either a solution of 1:1600 Vigo:water via the drip-line system 2 x weekly (but reduce the current/usual fertilizer application by 50%), or foliar spray at 12.5ts Vigo/Ha every 2 weeks in a mix tank of between 400 and 600Lts until just before harvest.  The latter 2 application rates are also applicable for full grown fruit bearing trees.
    • No need for any surfactants or wetting agents.

Forestry

    • Cuttings – Dip cuttings into undiluted Vigo and plant.
    • Seeds – soak seeds overnight in a 2ml/1lt Vigo/water solution (1:500 Vigo/water solution) and plant the next day, or apply as a slight stream, drip, or fine mist of undiluted Vigo onto the planted seedbed and water in lightly.
    • Thereafter apply 1 drop of Vigo to 160ml’s water and drench whenever watering is required.  Increase application accordingly per mass size of plant.
    • At transplant time apply 10ml undiluted Vigo around each tree, as a once-off. However 5ml can be applied per tree on a monthly basis if wished, increasing application as the tree grows to an application rate of no more than 50ml per tree per month.

Horticulture

    • Cuttings – Dip cuttings into undiluted Vigo and plant.
    • Seeds – soak seeds overnight in a 2ml/1lt Vigo/water solution (1:500 Vigo/water solution) and plant the next day, or apply as a slight stream, drip, or fine mist of undiluted Vigo onto the planted seedbed at a rate of 1lt/15m², and water in lightly.
    • At transplant time apply 10ml undiluted Vigo around each tree, or 5ml around each plant, as a once-off. The equivalent of 30ml/1Lt water can be applied per 16m² on a monthly basis if wished, increasing application (in the case of trees) to no more than 50ml undiluted per month, with other fertilizers.
    • In times of stress a Vigo solution of 30ml/1Lt water can be applied as a foliar application (even to aloes) every 2-weeks.

Compost

    • Apply 200ml undiluted Vigo to 1mᶟ raw material at the start of the composting process, and/or 100ml undiluted Vigo to 1mᶟ of the finished product and mix in well.
    • Where water is added to a windrow every time it is turned, add a 1:1600 ratio Vigo to water every time that the windrow is turned.

Golf Courses and Sports-Fields

    • Golf greens; – Apply Vigo at 12.5Lts/Ha every 2-weeks (with other fertilizers – reduce fertilizer applications).
    • Sports-Fields: – Apply Vigo at 12.5Lts/Ha every 2-weeks (with other fertilizers – reduce fertilizer applications). No need to water in if grass clippings are not removed from the fields.
  • Note :
    • *With the continual usage of Vigo we have found that plants continue to perform optimally even when water is reduced by 30%, and even as much as 40% in some cases.
    • *With Vigo, the advantage of various options with regards to applications is apparent.
    • * Vigo applied as both a foliar or soil/root applications creates an environment around the root zone (rhizosphere) which encourages (and thus speeds up) the rehabilitation of soils from chemical to organic, also known as the “chemganic” phase.

Mycorrhiza:

  • The production of fruit trees, nuts etc is strongly influenced by the extent of mycorrhizal activity in the root zone.
  • Mycorrhiza are beneficial fungi that occur in association with plant roots.
  • The greater the mycorrhizal activity, the better your production.
  • ***Please note that mycorrhiza require carbon, which they cannot take up from the soil itself, but get it from the plant. {The best-known symbiotic relationship on Earth.} In exchange, the mycorrhizal hyphae network extends into the soil, effectively increasing the root zone (rhizosphere), enabling the plant to take up moisture and nutrients from a wider area.

Organic acids:

  • Contains extremely wide range of organic acids and lipids plus silicic acid.
  • Another major factor in all plants is the translocation of calcium to the flower base. This is greatly enhanced by the presence of salicic acid in a form plants use efficiently.

Brix levels of plants:

  • Vigo and Vigo espresso will increase the Brix level of the plant. The more you use, the more the Brics count.
  • Higher Brix levels helps combat insects such as thrips and scale mite

It has been found that Vigo and Vigo espresso can totally take the place of your fertilising program with exceptional results.

  • It is a ideal product for high value intensive crops and fruits.
  • Not ideal for crops like maize, cane, pasture as a lot of product will be needed.

Vigo™ is best described as a TCO (True Compound Organic) as it does all that a bio stimulant + plant potentiator + plant growth enhancer + plant growth conditioner, can do!

  • Vigo has 17 essential organic amino acids and has proven to be extremely effective when used in conjunction with organic fertilizers
  • It can “turn on” or “turn off” metabolic pathways or activity “switches” so to speak, and therefore has the capability to enhance the uptake of plant nutrition even at reduced fertilizer rates
  • Although Vigo contains non-structured carbohydrates, its unique ability to further indirectly increase carbohydrates when the plant activates its “on” switch, thus allowing the plant to produce more energy, which in turn stimulates plant growth.
  • It contains no GMO’s.
  • It is not modified or enhanced in any way. Some further massive benefits of this amazing product:
  • increase the Brix Count, or sugar levels in the cell sap this assists in the control of Thrips and Scale Mite
  • It has the physiological effect at the plant’s cell membrane level.
  • To in turn give the following benefits:
  • Increase crop yield
  • Reduce fertilizer requirements
  • Reduce water usage

VIGO ESPRESSO APPLICATION PROTOCOLS

As per the trials done across the plant and crop spectrum, the application rates have been divided into the following categories:

  • Agriculture
  • Forestry
  • Horticulture
  • Golf & Sports-Fields
  • Vigo Espresso is a primary organic colloidal nutrient formula product which takes the place of other fertilizers, and can also be used at critical stages during stress periods or fruiting requirements.  Vigo Espresso foliar or root drench applications are recommended as a complete primary organic nutrient formula, or whenever the plant is experiencing high levels of stress (heat, wind, drought, transplanting, performance, insects, disease, etc).  The quick growth and stress relieving results of Vigo Espresso are to be seen within hours of application. If being used as a primary nutrient option, it is also best to apply the nutrient formula over the plant/crop cycle, but there is no need to re-apply should it rain shortly after application.  No other fertilizer protocol is required. Vigo Espresso is a combination of a natural colloidal nutrient ingredient formula, and Vigo, and is thus a superior primary balanced nutrient source which also has the added benefits of all that the Vigo product offers.

Note:  Knapsack/backpack spraying must be done at a mix rate of 50ml:1lt (Vigo Espresso:water and applied as a fine mist foliar application).

* Shake the contents well before use.

* Do not apply Vigo Espresso in its undiluted form to leaves, but as suggested.

* For optimum nutrient uptake, do not irrigate for at least 4 hours (preferably 24Hrs if possible), after a foliar application of this product.

  • Agriculture (Commercial/small-scale/subsistence/ home):
  • Crops (General):
    • Seedling plugs – Root drench weekly using a solution of Vigo Espresso at 20ml:1Lt water.
    • Foliar spray the crop every 2 weeks at a rate of 20Lts/Ha mixed in 400Lts to 600Lts water in the spray tank, until just before harvest time. No need for any surfactants or wetting agents (All other fertilizer applications can be done away with).
    • Vigo Espresso can be introduced at any time during the plant cycle but then the application rate needs to be increased to weekly for the 1st 2 applications, thereafter to the 2-weekly intervals.
    • Application via drip-line can be done at 1part Vigo Espresso to 1400 parts water at least weekly (The equivalent to at least 20Lt/Ha every 2-weeks).
    • For household use it is most effective when mixed to a solution of Vigo Espresso of 50ml:1lt water and applied as a fine mist foliar application, every 2 weeks.
  • Vegetables (including strawberries):
    • Seedling plugs – Root drench weekly using a solution of Vigo Espresso at 20ml:1Lt water.
    • As a complete primary nutrient protocol (when doing away with all fertilizer protocols), Vigo Espresso is to be applied every 2 weeks as a root drench of 20ml:1Lt water, or as a foliar application of 10Lts/Ha every 2 weeks for newly planted vegetables, increasing to 20Lts/Ha every 2 weeks with 400lt to 600Lt water in a spray tank for vegetables from mid-crop development stage, and continuing until just before crop harvest/damping-off time.
    • For household use it is most effective when mixed to a solution of Vigo Espresso of 50ml:1lt water and applied as a fine mist foliar application every 2 weeks.
    • It can also be applied via drip-line or micro sprayers at a 1:1400 Vigo Espresso/water solution on a weekly basis (The equivalent to at least 20Lt/Ha every 2-weeks).
  • Herbs:
    • Follow the protocol for vegetables!
  • Fruit trees:
    • For fruit bearing trees, 3 x good root drenching applications during the year of Vigo Espresso at 20ml:1Lt water will make a big difference – once just before flowering (even on trees that flower prior to leafing), during the initial stages of fruit forming, and mid-way during fruit development stage, or as a foliar application at those critical times of 25Lt/Ha in a 400Lt to 600Lt spray tank.
    • For a more sustained and increased performance (no other fertilizer protocol is required), a 2-weekly foliar application of Vigo Espresso at 20Lt/Ha in a spray tank of 400Lts to 600Lts water is recommended, to be applied throughout the season.
    • It can also be applied via drip-line or micro sprayers at a 1:1400 Vigo Espresso:water solution on a weekly basis (The equivalent to at least 20Lt/Ha every 2-weeks).
    • For household use it is most effective when mixed to a solution of Vigo Espresso of 50ml:1lt water and applied as a fine mist foliar application every 2 weeks.
  • Forestry: 
    • Root drench the young trees weekly with a solution of 20ml Vigo Espresso:1Lt water until transplanting time, thereafter they can be well drenched 3 or 4 times per year at equally spaced intervals.
  • Horticulture (Commercial and home):
    • For general garden upkeep and superior performance, a continuous 2-weekly (every 2 weeks) foliar application of Vigo Espresso at 50ml/1Lt water, applied as a fine mist foliar application. No other fertilizer is then required.
    • As a primary nutrient usage, young trees can be well drenched with a solution of 20ml Vigo Espresso/1Lt water and applied as and when, or a minimum of 3 x per year at 4-monthly intervals.
    • When applying via drip-line apply at a ratio of 1:1400 Vigo Espresso:water weekly.
    • In times of stress apply Vigo Espresso at 50ml:1lt water as a foliar every 2 weeks.
  • Golf Courses and Sports-Fields:
    • Golf greens; – Apply Vigo Espresso as a foliar application at 20Lt/Ha every 2-weekly. Do not irrigate for at least 4 hours afterwards and water in lightly before mowing. For better stress reduction results, apply 12.5Lt to 15Lt Vigo/Ha at the same time and in the same mix as the Vigo Espresso application (2-weekly).
    • Sports-Fields: – Apply Vigo Espresso as a foliar at 20Lt/Ha every 2-weekly. Do not irrigate for at least 4 hours afterwards and water in lightly before mowing.
    • No need to water in if grass clippings are not removed from the fields.
  • Note
    • The Vigo Espresso mix has also known to repel certain insects, particularly thrips, aphids, and white fly, due to an increase in the sugar or Brix levels.
    • With the continual usage of Vigo Espresso, we have found that plants continue to perform optimally even when water is reduced by as much as 30%.
    • Vigo Espresso applied as both a foliar or soil/root applications creates an environment around the root zone (rhizosphere) which encourages (and thus speeds up) the rehabilitation of soils from chemical to organic (The “chemganic” transition period). Increased exudate excretion provides an enriched rhizosphere and increases the diffusion of released nutrients.
    • With Vigo Espresso, the advantage of various options with regards to nutrient applications is apparent, given costs, labour, and application equipment available.
    • 2-weekly refers to every 2 weeks.
    • Vigo Espresso can also be used with additional Vigo for optimal results.
