Daymsa’s nutritional programme for the saturn peach aims to obtain balanced trees, which means increasing saturn peach production and quality.
The fruit trees begin their activity using the reserves they have built up in the course of the previous year. The beginning of root development coincides with the start of growth, making it essential to supply biostimulants and soil improvers during this period. These products encourage root development and nutrient absorption.
Aminoacids stimulate the tree in stress situations (water, extreme temperatures, phytotoxicity, etc.).
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 in this type of crop. This takes the form of yellowing leaves, leading to a significant reduction in production.
Applying a potassium-based fertilizer after the stone has hardened improves the colour, size and sugar content of saturn peaches. Finally, we should emphasise that supplying nutrients in the post-harvesting phase is very important in order to prepare the tree for the next crop.
