On Rice flower: Significant increase in stems/m2 per year
Rice flower has become one of the most popular flowers in the cut flower trade for retaining its beauty even after drying. From Australian origin, this variety is characterized by its spherical shape, which is related to grains of rice.
In a crop in the province of Pichincha, we carried out a trial on Rice Flower of the Victoria Pink variety, with a cycle of 32 weeks. It was applied in the transplant stage using a single type of granulometry of Tectopore Bioblend, which is characterized by being an enriched mixture with a great diversity of efficient microorganisms and nutrient concentration.
For the application, we mix Tectopore Bioblend with trichodermas and other elements throw the farm and broadcast it throughout the bed to give greater uniformity to the application and help retain the fertilizer. The closer the product is to the root, the more favorable the results will be.
The objective of this trial was to increase productivity and increase the percentage of exportable stems with a greater length. Likewise, it sought to improve the structure of the soil and the retention of nutrients and water.
It is important to mention that Tectopore regulates the water availability and facilitates the absorption of nutrients from the soil, keeping them permanently available to plants. Being a recalcitrant product, it will continue to provide its benefits to the soil for years.
I.I Accumulated production – Stems from 40 to 80 cm
An increase of 64,112 extra stems is obtained with the application of Tectopore Bioblend. Corresponds to a 10% increase in productivity.
Los tallos de 35 cm (HB), son laterales que se aprovechan para bouquetes.
In the first weeks of harvest, floors were made on the floors of the beds with Tectopore Bioblend, which did not happen with the harvest of the witness.
The stem is cut 20 cm from the base to form a floor, for this reason there is no greater number of stems greater than 60 cm in the test beds.
With the application of Tectopore Bioblend, an increase of 10.76 stems/m2 per year is achieved in the Rice flower beds. This generates an additional net income per cycle.
