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, weekly applications (5 cc/L via foliar or 5 L/Ha via irrigation) to obtain better sprouting and root development. Starting
from foliar development, applications with NHDeltaCa via irrigation to improve the growth of secondary roots, improving the
absorption of micro elements and regulating root pH. The use of NHDeltaK improves tuber fattening. It is recommended to reduce
nitrate intake by 40 – 50%
Apply when the crop requires contributions of Fe and Mn, especially during sprouting to avoid deficiencies of these elements, and
when symptoms of Fe deficiencies are observed
After planting, application at between 1 and 2 cc/L to improve the plant response. From foliar development, regular biweekly
applications to reduce the effects of environmental stress. Before harvest 2 applications at 1.5 cc/L; the first 10 days before and the
second 3 to improve the post-harvest condition of the tubers.
Apply at a dose of 1.5 cc/L to promote the development and tuberization of the plant. Its acidic pH makes it possible to use it in a
mixture with most phytosanitary products and foliar fertilizers.
Use during the growth phase at a dose of 2 cc/L every 12-15 days to reduce excess apical growth by redirecting photoassimilates
to the tuber
NPK with micronutrients for better growth and health of the crop in order to increase harvest and quality.
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.
Correction of possible zinc and manganese deficiencies. Best applied preventively in spring. Repeat if necessary later

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.
