Daymsa’s nutritional programme for endives aims to obtain orderly growth for the crop, in order to increase endive production and quality.
Supplying biostimulants and soil improvers right from the outset stimulates root development and nutrient absorption, and this results in better endive development.
Applying calcium improves tissue firmness and prevents the appearance of “tip-burn”, a disease which is common in this type of crop, leading to burning around the edges and tips of the leaves, caused by calcium deficiency. Aminoacids stimulate endive growth in stress situations (associated with water, due to frosts, phytotoxicity, etc.)
When the heads begin to swell, applying a potassium-based fertilizer to the leaves improves them, producing endives which are much more attractive to consumers.
