Double appearance ratio is more or less 95% without select-out process. Easiest choice to reduce the labor costs, planting space and mental stress in the operation.
Features nicely uniform and pure white dense spike with small and less curled leaves.
From planting to harvest: 9 weeks.
100 plants / m2 net (12 plants / ft2).
Soil: Well drained, loose soil. At least 25 cm deep. (10 in.) Avoid any hard packed soil.
pH: 5.5 to 6.5
Netting: 2-3 levels
At planting, use drip irrigation applying a volume of 4-5 l/m2/day. To avoid dehydration from small plants, use overhead irrigation for the first 3 weeks to complement irrigation. Once plant foliage fill the bedding area, once or twice a week refreshment watering may complement the drip irrigation (depending on inveronmental conditions) avoiding exces water on the foliage (border method irrigation).
Avoid conditions that are either too wet or too dry. Wet conditions can cause diseases including Root Rot. Dry conditions can cause wilting and lower leaf chlorosis which then exposes plants to other infections.
Begin fertilization one week after transplanting and continue fertilizing until the end of the crop time.
A general fertilization formula can be the following:
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.
Optional. Spray if flower height needs improvement. Up to 3 applications can be done with 150 ppm each at weeks 3, 5 and 7 after planting.
Harvest when stems have 3-5 opened flowers or depending on the client’s needs.
Hydrate in AVB solution (0.5 cm3 / Lt of Water) and AVB Booster (1 cm3 / Lt) for two hours. Subsequently hydrate in Chrysal Professional 2 at a dose of 10 cm3 / Lt for 4 hours.
