Daymsa’s nutritional programme for lettuce aims to obtain orderly growth of the crop, with the consequent increase in lettuce production and quality.
Incorporating biostimulants and soil improvers right from the outset reduces the stress from transplanting, improving nutrient absorption and root development.
Supplying calcium improves the firmness of tissues and avoids the appearance of “tip-burn”, a very common physiopathy in lettuces, which takes the form of the appearance of burns around the edges and at the tips of the youngest leaves.
In order to stimulate leaf growth and development in situations of stress (water, extreme temperatures, plant diseases, etc.) treatment with aminoacids is required. Finally, applying a potassium-based fertilizer to the leaves prior to formation of the lettuce head makes it swell more successfully.
