Geolife Tabsil: Boosts Chilli Crop Health, Growth, and Resistance at All Stages 

The effervescing tablet product Tabsil contains a high concentration of ortho-silicic acid (OSA), which is necessary for the development of the immune system and plants. It is the fifth essential component for the formation of cell walls and aids in fortifying crops. In fields with irrigation water, the effervescing tablet facilitates application. Plant defense against a range of abiotic and biotic stresses are induced by the application of Tabsil® through morphological, physiological, and biochemical mechanisms. Silicon present in Tabsil® strengthens cell walls, preventing lodging and enhancing plant uprightness. It regulates nutrient uptake and transport, regulates water balance, and enhances photosynthesis, contributing to overall plant growth.

  1. Vegetative stage 
  2. Flowering Stage 
  3. Maturity Stage 
  4. Harvest Stage 

Crop Management with Geolife Tabsil at various crop stages 

  1. Vegetative Stage  

Plant height increases and abundant branching are traits of the vegetative period. With primary, secondary, and territorial branching, the chilli plant is a heavily branched herbaceous plant. For increased aeration and sunshine infiltration into the canopy, extensive branching is favored over compacted cultivars.  Maximum rooting occurs during this time. An excessive amount of nutrient application  lengthens the vegetative development period. 

Crop Development 

The vegetative stage begins approximately 40 to 45 days after sowing. Following germination, chili plants produce true leaves and shoots. During this stage, the application of Tabsil is essential for promoting plant growth. As the plant matures, its stem elongates and thickens. Branching becomes crucial for enhancing overall foliage, ultimately contributing to the development of flowers and fruits. 

Product usage 

  • Tabsil is applied for all the crops like vegetables, fruits and field crops. 
  • The recommended dose is 1 gm / L of water for foliar application. Repeat the spray at 15 days after first spray 
  • It enhances stress resistance, strengthens upright growth, regulates nutrient uptake, and improves water management. It also enhances photosynthetic efficiency, resistance to abiotic stresses, and increases leaf thickness for pathogen resistance. 

2. Flowering stage  

Flowering typically begins around two months after transplanting chili plants or approximately 80–85 days into their growth cycle. During this stage, you will witness small white flowers with star-shaped petals, featuring purple anthers and filaments.  The appearance of flowers indicates that your chili plant is thriving under the conditions you’ve provided, and it is ready for reproduction.   

Crop Development 

The chilli plant is often cross-pollinated and 50% natural. After anthesis and pollination, more than 40 days are needed for fruit development and maturity. Anthesis often happens around 5 AM. Stigma is responsive starting the day before anthesis and persisting for two days following anthesis. About 20-30% of the blooms produced in chilli plants are used to set fruit. 

Product usage 

  • Tabsil is applied for all crops like vegetables, fruits and field crops. 
  • The recommended dose is 1g/lit of water for foliar application. If requires, repeat the spray at 15 days after first spray 
  • Tabsil is a plant defense system that enhances plant health by providing a strong physical barrier against pests and diseases. 

3. Maturity stage  

The maturity stage in chili crops is a crucial phase that determines when the chilis are ready for harvest. Most chilli plants will reach maturity after 80 to 120 days. By following proper care and techniques, you can even speed up the process and achieve the harvest stage as early as 65 days. The right signs of maturity ensures a flavourful and successful chili harvest. 

Crop Development 

By applying Tabsil, chili crops can enhance both fruit quantity and size. Approximately 35 days after anthesis, the fruits reach complete maturity. Depending on the variety, their color transitions from green to red or purple. At full maturity, which occurs around 40 days after anthesis, the fruits contain approximately sufficient moisture. 

Product usage 

  • Tabsil is applied for all the crops and is compatible with all kinds of fertilizer and various agrochemicals. 
  • The recommended dose is 1g/lit of water for foliar application, repeat the spray at 15 days after first spray 
  • Tabsil is an effervescent tablet product rich in ortho-silicic acid, essential for plant development and immune system development. 
  • Tabsil also enhances biotic stress resistance, reducing the need for chemical interventions. 
  • Its role in boosting photosynthesis and growth directly contributes to increased plant growth and productivity. 

4. Harvesting stage 

Chilli which is used for table purpose are harvested in green colour stage, whereas for canning and chilli powder purpose, fruits are harvested at red colour stage.  Harvesting chili peppers is an exciting stage in the growth cycle, and it’s crucial to do it at the right time to ensure optimal flavor and quality. 

Crop development 

First-picked fruits are longer than those collected later, and a similar weight trend is also observed. The weight of the fruit at maturity varies according to the cultivar, harvest period, soil quality, and cultural practices. Depending on the variety or hybrid, fresh fruit can weigh from 1g to 300g. 

Product usage 

  • Application of Tabsil in various crop stages with the respective method of application ensures the good germination of seeds, leaf and shoots development. 
  • After the harvest, Tabsil helps to increase the storage life of chilli. It also acts as a barrier for the entry of pests and diseases. 


Throughout the growth cycle of chili crops, ensuring an adequate nutrient supply is crucial. Tabsil fulfills this essential role by providing necessary nutrients, promoting crop growth, and enhancing biotic stress resistance. As a result, the reliance on chemical interventions is reduced. The convenience of Tabsil’s tablet form simplifies the application process, making it farmer-friendly. Tabsil’s multifaceted functions include regulating nutrient uptake and transport, maintaining water balance, and boosting photosynthesis—all contributing to overall plant health and productivity.
