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 planting, application via irrigation with NHDeltaCa (5 cc/L) to obtain a better rooting and foliar development decreasing post-transplant stress. 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
Apply at the end of flowering stage and beginning of fruit set at a dose rate of 1.5 cc/L to obtain fruits better developed, with
higher weigh, less physiological disorders (Softness, glassiness, mechanical damage, etc) and diseases (peronospora, mildew 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 the following growth stages helps to reduce
excessive apical growth redirecting sugars and other photosynthesis substances to the bulb.
NPK with micronutrients for a better growth and plant health to increase yield and quality.
After planting application at 1 to 2 cc/L to obtain a better growth response. From shoot 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.
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.

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.
