At Vellsam Materias Bioactivas we have carried out an elaborate fertilization plan for melon and watermelon crops under three fundamental premises (earliness, Brix degrees and profitability), after years of trials in different crops carried out both in the Southeast of Spain and in the area. of Castilla-La Mancha.
For this, it has been vitally important to start the crop with a good base, preparing the soil for conditions where the plant can quickly absorb all the necessary nutrients, also minimizing possible attacks by pathogens that can reduce its potential.
This base begins with the introduction of growth-promoting bacteria (Rhyzoprime) and, depending on the percentage of organic matter in the soil, initial contributions of humic acids (Humivell 26).
Once introduced, growth-promoting bacteria improve the microbiota by reestablishing the biological balance of the soil, fix nitrogen in the rhizospheric zone to supply it to the plant, solubilize phosphorus and produce siderophores.
Rhyzoprime, Ecompete for space and nutrients with invading microorganisms, making it difficult to establish pathogens close to the roots, having both its growth stimulating capacity and its protective capacity against fungal infections been tested.
Once the soil has the optimal conditions, we proceeded to introduce highly selective products in each physiological phase that optimized both earliness and Brix degrees and profitability.
Humivell 26 modifies the characteristics of the soil, favoring ion exchange and nutrient absorption, increasing the solubility of metallic elements through carboxylic and phenolic groups, forming chelates and favoring the absorption of the iron chelate in basic or alkaline soils with a high pH .
