Quality improvement

You are here

Your crop in good condition

Unbalanced plant nutrition and fertilisation leads to deficiencies and to a yield of inferior quality. For example, excess fertilisation of nitrogen and/or potassium will affect strongly the quality and shelf life of most types of fruits. 
The solution? Foliar fertilisation programmes.
These programmes allow you to improve the nutritional balance of the crops. The incorporation of the specific nutrients, important for each crop, will assure an optimal quality of the yield. On our crop pages you can find out more about the special requirements of each crop. Mail us for free advice on your crop.
