Eugene Gabriel and E&E Agrochemicals unleashing sustainable agricultural future

In the heart of the Caribbean, led by St. Lucian Eugene Gabriel of E&E Agrochemicals, a pioneering agricultural initiative is transforming the farming industry. Their innovative products are boosting productivity for farmers in the region.

In collaboration with WUSC Caribbean, E&E Agrochemicals launched a successful project in St. Lucia, and due to its high success rate, expanded to Antigua and Barbuda. They partnered with Itajah Simmons, owner of Simmons Pepper and Vegetable Farm, cultivating three watermelon varieties with extraordinary results.

Eugene Gabriel emphasised, “Presently, we are actually in the harvest phase right now. It was the first time the farmer used our products. Specifically, the product lineup included Agromax, Nitro-Pro, Cal-10, Cal-Mag-B, and Cal-Nite, our entire nutrient line.”

The implementation of this product suite as well as E&E Agrochemical’s custom farming schedule led to an astonishing harvest timeline that was 25 days earlier than the norm.

Eugene Gabriel says, “Our main nutrient product, Agromax, is doing what we say it’s doing and giving the farmer what he wants – an increase in production and larger fruit size.”

The watermelons are defying conventional norms, with melons reaching weights far beyond expectations, up to 20 pounds when the average was 10 to 12 pounds.

This extraordinary outcome underscores E&E Agrochemicals’ commitment to nutrient transfer and the utilisation of innovative solutions to expedite plant growth and enhance crop yield. Importantly, these advancements do not come at the cost of quality.

Gabriel affirms, “It does not affect the quality and the taste of the crop. In fact, it enhances it.”

The watermelons grown using E&E Agrochemicals’ products have demonstrated exceptional sweetness and texture, defying the typically watery and lacklustre results seen in traditional practises.

Looking ahead, the company has ambitious plans. Eugene Gabriel reveals, “Our next step is to get the products in the stores and introduce our new offerings, including insecticides and organic alternatives to chemical agents.”

E&E Agrochemicals aims to provide farmers with effective tools to reduce reliance on non-organic chemicals, thereby promoting sustainable agricultural practises that protect both crops and the environment.

Eugene Gabriel proudly shares, “We’ve provided these farmers with samples of Agromax, and their positive feedback has resulted in consistent product purchases. We continue to support them through regular visits and problem-solving.”

Eugene Gabriel’s experience with E&E Agrochemicals illustrates how innovative solutions can revolutionise conventional agricultural methods. Their dedication to enhancing farm productivity and their product offerings are charting a path towards a more sustainable and prosperous future for farmers throughout the Caribbean and beyond.
