Growing persimmons without nutrient deficiencies

By using Haifa's fertilizers and following our fertilization program, the persimmons get all the nutrients needed in order to give outstanding fruits

Plant population:400-450 Trees/Ha.

 

Non bearing trees (Kg/Ha)
Base dressing: 80 T/ha FYM.

The fertilizers should be applied during the irrigation season, spring till the end of autumn, about 230 days.

Multi-K - Potassium nitrate (13-0-46).
AN - Ammonium nitrate (34% N).
MAP – Mono-ammonium phosphate (12-61-0).
Magnisal – magnesium nitrate (10.8-0-0 + 15.8MgO).

 

Special attention should be paid regarding iron chlorosis. Avoid calcareous soils and apply iron chelates frequently.
Excessive nitrogen can cause premature fruit drop.

Fall is an excellent season to prepare the tree to next season requirements in N, K and Fe. As long as foliage is green and active it will readily absorb these nutrients applied by foliar sprays.
