Daymsa’s nutritional programme aims to increase escarole production and quality. This is achieved through providing the crop with balanced nutrition.
Initially, incorporating biosimulants and soil improvers reduces the stress from transplanting, improving nutrient absorption and root development.
Supplying calcium is essential, since it improves tissue firmness and prevents “tip-burn”, a very common disease of the escaraole crop which can be seen by the appearance of burning at the edges and tips of the youngest leaves, reducing production.
Treatment with aminoacids is required in order to stimulate leaf growth and development in situations of stress (water, extreme temperatures, plant diseases, etc.). Finally, applying a potassium fertilizer to the leaves before the escarole head forms improves its quality and size.
