Citrus cultivation in Spain has around 270,000 hectares in production, including oranges, mandarins, lemons and grapefruits. Linked to this production, the complexity of the markets is currently a handicap for those farmers who do not obtain the desired yields, in quantity and quality.
From JISA Advanced Agro we always propose to see nutrition as an investment and not just as a production cost. For this to be the case, factors such as knowledge of the cultivation phases and the particularities of each variety are very important when it comes to obtaining the highest possible production and of course with optimum quality.
The foliar fertilization during the spring season, which are in according to the geographical areas during the months of March, April, May and June, allows us to improve the production and quality of the fruits. For this, JISA Advanced Agro offers you a select range of agronutrients and biostimulants for the cultivation of citrus that will help you improve the performance of your crop.
