The aim of Daymsa’s nutritional programme is to obtain well-balanced trees, which means increasing nectarine production and quality.
The tree’s first activity begins with the reserves it has built up in the course of the previous year. Supplying biostimulants and soil enhancers reduces the stress caused by transplanting, and encourages root development and nutrient absorption. This results in better development of the trees.
Iron deficiencies are very common in this type of crop, and must be corrected via the soil. In this way we can avoid iron chlorosis, a very common physiopathy which takes the form of yellowing leaves, leading to a significant reduction in the production of nectarines.
Aminoacids stimulate the tree in stress situations (water, extreme temperatures, phytotoxicity, etc.). After the stone hardens fertilization with potassium is important in order to obtain nectarines of a good size, colour and sugar content.
Finally, we must emphasise the need to supply nutrients at the post-harvest phase, as this is very important for preparing the nectarine tree for the following year.
