From planting to harvest: 10 weeks.
100 plants/m2net (12 plants/ft2).
Soil: Well surfaced, loose soil with no clusters; at least 25 cm (10 in.) deep.
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.
POST HARVEST TREATMENT
Hydrate in AVB solution (0.5cm3/Lt of water) and AVB Booster (1cm3/Lt) for 4 hours. Subsequently hydrate in Chrysal Professional 2 at a dose of 10cm3/Lt for 4hours.
