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.

Regular applications at 5-10 L/Ha. Better balanced plant growth between leaf and root. Higher quality root production. Better root
shape at harvest. Reduction of standard nitrate applications by 35-50%.
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.
(1-2 L/Ha) For improvement of skin finish and root quality, promote flowering and seed production.
Use along growth cycle at 2 cc/L every 12-15 days to decrease vegetative growth. In the following growth stages helps to reduce
excessive apical growth redirecting sugars and other photosynthesis substances to the root.
NPK with micronutrients for a better growth and plant health to increase yield and quality.
(1/L/Ha) Reduction of physiological disorders caused by plant stress, removal of micro-nutrient deficiencies for optimal growth.
Improvement in plant health for greater disease resistance.
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.

Considerations

Normally, both the establishment of nitrogen fertilizer doses 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 availability in the soil theoretically determines 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.
