Daymsa’s nutritional programme for rubber aims to obtain well-nourished, balanced trees, thus increasing rubber production and quality.
The rubber tree begins its activity using the reserves it has built up in the course of the previous year. Incorporating biostimulants and soil improvers when growing begins improves the tree’s ability to make roots, encouraging nutrient absorption and, therefore, tree growth. Adding organic material to the soil throughout the cycle improves the effectiveness of mineral fertilisers, improving production.
Once latex extraction begins a product which produces phytoalexins with systemic action must be applied. These products stimulate the development of the natural defence systems of rubber trees.
