Due to its high sprouting, at week 5, remove lateral stems leaving only the main stem. At week 7, repeat the process. by removing any laterals that have grown.
At planting or after 7 days, use drip irrigation applying a volume of 6-7 l/m2/day. If soil gets dry, use overhead irrigation for the first 3 weeks to complement irrigation maintaining the substrate’s moisture homogeneous according to environmental and organoleptic conditions.
A general fertilization formula can be:
N: 120 ppm
P: 40 ppm
K: 160 ppm
Ca: 120 ppm
Mg: 60 ppm
S: 50 ppm
Fe: 2 ppm
Mn: 2.5 ppm
Cu, Zn y B: 0.2 ppm.
Starting week 8-9, irrigation reinforcements can be made following:
K: 200 – 220 ppm
Ca: 200 ppm.
- C.E.: 1.0 a 1.4
Harvest when head becomes round with at least 8 cm in diameter.
Stems can be harvested 16 weeks after planting but the heads can be of a smaller diameter than if harvested 18 weeks after planting.
POST HARVEST TREATMENT
Measure the pH of the hidrating solution before applying to any of the post harvest products. Use citric acid to elevate pH to 4. Hidrate in STS (Floríssima 125 at a dosis of 5 cc/lt) for 2 hours. Then hydrate in Chrysal Profesional 2 solution (dosis 6 cc/l) for 12 hours in a cold room.
