Cropping programme

Increased Yields

The EcoCulture crop programme seeks to increase yields through a greater understanding of growth and how it is affected by various environmental factors.

Higher Quality, Higher Profitability

Our programme improves both the production and quality of the fruit, obtaining higher profitability rates for the farmer.

After pruning, foliar application with NHDeltaCa (5 cc/L) to obtain a better rooting and foliar development. From development
stage, applications with NHDeltaCa and NHDeltaK via irrigation to improve growth and secondary root system increasing
absorption of micro elements regulating pH at rhizosphere. The use of NHDeltaK improves fruit development. It is
recommended to decrease nitrate applications between 40 – 50%
Apply when the crop requires contributions of Fe and Mn, especially during budding and flowering to avoid deficiencies of
these elements, and when symptoms of Fe deficiencies are observed. In neutral, basic soils or irrigated with alkaline water,
from start of cultivation.
After pruning, application at 1 to 2 cc/L to obtain a better growth response. From leaf development, regular applications every
10 to 15 days to reduce the effects of environmental stress. Before harvest, 2 applications at 1,5 cc/L; the first 10 days before
harvest and the second 3 days to get better post-harvest condition.
Apply at the end of flowering stage and beginning of fruit set (size fruit between 2-3 mm) at a dose rate of 1.5 cc/L to obtain
fruits better developed, with higher weigh, less physiological disorders (cracking, softness, mechanical damage, etc) and
diseases (antracnose, botrytis, etc) as well as less water losses along late stages. The acidic pH of the product allows most of
tank mixing with other pesticides and foliar fertilizers.
Use along growth cycle at 2 cc/L every 12-15 days to decrease vegetative growth in favor of flowering, as well as elongation
of the polinic tube. In the following growth stages helps to reduce excessive apical growth redirecting sugars and other
photosynthesis substances to the fruit.
NPK with micronutrients for better growth and health of the crop in order to increase harvest and quality. Apply anytime a
balanced foliar supply of NPK + microelements is needed.
Maximizes the effectiveness of the use of water and fertilizers in irrigation, promotes soil aeration and increases the harvest
and its quality. It can be applied through any irrigation system. Slick can be applied together with fertilizers at an initial dose of
3l/ha plus applications of 1l/ha per month throughout the entire crop cycle.
For correction of potential deficiencies of zinc and manganese. Apply preventively and repeat if necessary depending on
deficiency symptoms. (Can alternatively be applied via roots through any irrigation system).

Considerations

Normally, both the establishment of nitrogen fertilizer does and the application date constitute a complex problem that arises differently for the farmer in each crop cycle. When making this decision, a series of factors must be considered, such as:

Crop needs
Soil reserves
Climatic factors
Residues from the previous crop

The difference between the absorption of nitrogen by the crop and its availibility in the soil theoretically determinates the quantities to be applied. However, it is important to introduce a corrective index, which refers to the real effectiveness of fertilization. It is considered that under field conditions it varies between 40 to 80%, although when there is a water deficit or fertilization is carried out at sowing, the N efficiency may be lower.
