The aim of any producer is a high yielding, high quality crop that satisfies the end user. There are a large number of agronomic factors which can influence this, many are within the control of the grower, under given growing systems, climatic and soil conditions.
Soil and Water Requirements
Apples trees can grow in a wide range of soils from medium
textured clays to gravelly sands. However, poor soils will produce
poor results and the best crops are found on fertile sandy soils and
Soils should be well drained. Wet soils lead to poor aeration and increased incidence of crown rot in apples (Phytophthora Cactorum). Generally, rooting tends to be shallow, and wet soils will restrict development, resulting in poor anchorage of the tree and a reduced area of soil from which nutrients can be extracted.
Soils with high organic matter contents are normally better
structured and allow good rooting.
Table: Suitable plant needs products for apple cultivation
|New planting||PLANC and or Bio Fume||500kg/ha||Control Nematodes and many other soil pest and disease , adds plant nutrients|
|Plants with stablished orchard||PLANC - spread and
Incorporate in to the soil
PLANO- Fertigate @ the rate of 3 litre /ha ,total 15 litres 5 times during bud initiation flowering and fruit formation , starting ist week of November in Victoria Australia ,till 2nd week of January .
ALOE neem- Fertigate @rate of 5 litre /ha ,2 times with in the interval of 3 weeks well before flowering .
|5 litre/ha = total 10litre|
3litre/ha =total 15litre .
|Helps in fertilising the
soil and improves plant
health as Aloe-vera with
neem will help the plants
to regenerate by
nutrients during the
peak growing season.|
Plano will help in controlling pest and disease and also it will take part in overall improving plant health by creating oxidation surrounding root zone .
|Apple crop||SPRAY NEED’- is the
best and safe
emulsifier /surfactant or
wetting agent . from
Plant needs .|
Use 500ml -700ml of Spray Need in each 1000 litre water .
|100 ml in each litre of herbicides, insecticides or fungicides , will increase the dilution and effective spray coverage,||Easy dilution , broader coverage and good penetration of all products in to the crops .|
