Chili peppers and the improvement of their cultivation

Chili peppers and the improvement of their cultivation

Technological advances in the cultivation of chili pepper

The feasibility of improving on the good agricultural practices used inthe cultivation of the pepper has increased greatly in the past few years. A significant portion of this increase is due to the worldwide spread of knowledge that can now reach everyone.

Many agriculturists opt to use HORTOMALLAS® trellis netting for pepper crops.

Because good agricultural practices will increase their productivity when cultivating solanaceaes

Capsaicin is a beneficial compound

Capsaicin is a chemical compound that even in small quantities will produce a burning sensation when it comes into contact with any tissue, which happens most commonly after it is eaten.

The spicy pepper cultivars are ingredients that are never missing from Mexican kitchens.

Consuming pepper fruit that has capsaicin have show to have several medicinal properties including:

  • Increases the calories burnt by the body after ingestion
  • Reduce overall cholesterol levels
  • Useful as a natural anticoagulant
  • Possess anti-inflammatory properties
  • Have cancer fighting properties and also fight oxidation
  • Possibly fight against Parkinson’s Disease

Towards a sustainable production of pepper crops

Society nowadays has been tending towards being more thoughtful about the biological, ecological, economical, and also social aspects of our agricultural systems and how sustainable they are.

This has manifeste itself as a need to ensure that measures are be take to improve on all of these aspects. The last few years has improved both the efficiency and the performance of pepper cultivation through technological and mechanical improvements, although there have been some costs to the environment.

Meanwhile, the safety of food that is grow and harvest use inadequate technology of support.

Chili pepper crops
The pepper crops require a support on both sides of the groove, to avoid the weight of the fruits chopping the branches.
 

Sustainable alternatives

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) offers a mechanism with concrete proven methods that are not only pro-agriculture, but also aid in the development of a sustainable rural growing area. These methods place emphasis on how sustainable agriculture contributes to food safety and also helps with the proper use of natural resources.

They have the goal in mind to encourage the agricultural food industry, food retailers, consumers, as well as governments to have them actively participate in the search of sustainable systems.

If those systems are also lucrative, productive, and protect the health and well being of the humans, animals, and the local environment, all the better. Because of all this, it has become very important to complete production improvements that allow a greater field utilization, allowing for greater efficiency.

Crops of Chili and Tomatoes
Crops of Chile also Tomatoes are very subject to infection transmitted mechanically by the same workers.
 

Small producers and tutoring with support netting

One other side to this issue is taking into account the socio-economic importance that small agriculturists have on the country. The small agriculturist has a very important role in the structure of the rural countryside as well as the overall agricultural production of Mexico; thus the small agriculturist is a prime candidate for the implementation of these more efficient production systems.

double-stranded trellis mesh
In Solanaceae crops, it is recommended to use the double-stranded trellis mesh, in this way the plant is supported by both sides of the groove.

in the horticulture chain its important to implement these simple ans low cost system.  

One excellent system that improves on all of these facets is using trellising net to tutor your crops. This trellis netting can significantly improve field production as well as offer other advantages that allow the agriculturist.

Although there is no one definition or consensus for the identification of a family farm, they undoubtedly occupy an important percentage of the land that is dedicated to the production of crops, meaning that they are a responsible for supplying a significant portion of the fresh produce that is available on local markets.

With the trellising mesh significantly reduces the labor and also the transmission of diseases by contact.

All of this that has been previously mentioned is evidence of the productive potential that implementing a program designed to improve the sustainable work in the agricultural food chain could have, and trellis netting is one of the easiest ways to go about this and improve the pepper harvest.
