Walnut and pecan plantation
The care of walnut and pecanis essential to obtain an exquisite fruit that reaches the consumer in excellent condition.
For this we have taken into account essential aspects such as agronomic conditions of the farmthat are exceptional, a privileged area in Andalusia, such as the Guadalquivir valley, next to the bank of the river that bears his name, which means that the development of the tree and the fruit throughout its vegetative period is unbeatable, giving as result a high quality walnuts.
Another fundamental aspect is the choice of a quality plant, having chosen these plants from nurseries in Spain and in various countries around the world.
The latest technology
State-of-the-art technologies have been followed for leveling the land, whose work is essential in all planting initiation. To achieve this with the greatest possible precision, we have used a laser beam equipment avoiding damaging the physical and chemical composition of the terrain.
Another state-of-the-art technology that we are using is the stomatal pressure chamber. It is adevice for applying air pressure to a leaf, where most of it is inside the chamber, but a small part of the petiole is exposed to the outside of the chamber through a seal. The amount of pressure that is needed to make the water appear on the cut surface of the petiole will depend on the pressure of the leaf.
We also use the Diviner 2000, which is a soil moisture measurement system, which records moisture at different depths in the root zone of the crop. It incorporates the cutting edge technology of EnviroSCAN.
Soil structure and texture conditions determine the soil’s ability to retain water.
The irrigation system that we use is located with 4 dripper lines, it is a very efficient and respectful system with the consumption of water.
The use of fertilizers is located directly in the area of influence of the root system, perfectly dissolved and therefore more easily assimilable for the plant, thus obtaining optimal conditions for its development.
Application of mycorrhizae in walnut and pecan
When the plant is being placed on the ground, just at that very moment it Add on the roots MYCORRHIZES, which is a product of natural origin, isolated from strains of endo-mycorrhizal fungi or arbuscular vesicular fungi, which are usually present in soils around the world.
This fungus colonizes the roots,without causing any damage to the plant and later develops a network of external hyphae that spread and branch in the soil. They vitalize plants for life with a single application. Helping to improve nutritional deficiencies. Reducing the stress of transplantation and final sowing, it acts as a biological control, the stress caused by extreme temperatures, intense droughts, salty, contaminated, damaged soils, extreme Ph and other factors.
It generates a better resistance against pathogenic organisms(reduction of insecticide and fungicide applications). It increases the tolerance of the roots against the attack of pathogenic microorganisms and nematodes. Reduces the possibility of being infected with Phytophthora, Aphanomyces, Pythium, which reduces vascular damage such as Fusarium and Verticillium and nodule-forming nematodephitoparasites, galls that cause lesions such as Meloidogyne and Pratylenchus among others, and reduces chemical applications throughout the life of the plant, considered as “vaccine effect”.
