Culture Tips

CROP TIME

Perennial.  From planting to harvest: 26 weeks.


PLANTING DENSITY

6 Plants /m2 net (1 plant /ft2). Plants are spaced in a quincunx pattern with 40cm between each line.


PRE-PLANTING

Soil: Loose and well-drained soil, at least 25 cm deep.

pH: 5.5 to 6.5

Netting: 2-3 levels


PINCH 

In order to stimulate the basal sprouting of new stems, pinch when the first stem is induced.  Handle with care to avoid damaging the growth points.


STEM INDUCTION

Low fertility and low soil moisture favors stem induction. When the crown has expanded to a diameter of 30 - 35 cm apply 150 ppm of Gibberellic Acid. Once the first stem comes out, pinch it. Reapply Gibberelic  acid to plants that do not induce.


IRRIGATION

For a good rooting, keep the moisture at field capacity for the first 3 weeks after planting,.  At week 5, lower irrigation to induce stems.


FERTILIZATION

A general fertilization formula can be as following:

N: 120 ppm

P: 50 ppm

K: 120 ppm

Ca: 180 Ppm

Mg: 50 ppm

S: 50 ppm

Fe: 2 ppm

Mn:2.5 ppm

Cu, Zn and B: 0.2 ppm


HARVEST

Cut the stems when 80% to 90% of the flowers are open.


POST-HARVEST TREATMENT

Measure the pH of the hydration water before applying any of the Postharvest products. Hydrate in Chrysal Professional 2, dose 10 cc / lt for 12 hours in a cold room. Once mixed, the pH should be between 3.5 and 5.5.
