Detailed Description

The main nutritional balance of the papaya crop relies on potassium and nitrogen, as the performance depends on these two elements. The demand for phosphorus is low and mainly necessary during the flowering stage. The NovaTec® Solub line is recommended for fertigation systems. For foliar application Basfoliar® line is recommended. To increase the root development, and for better crop development biostimulants like Basfoliar® Kelp SL or Basfoliar® Avant Natur SL should be used. Chelated foliar micronutrient applications such as Fetrilon® Combi ensure an adequate supply with good compatibility and fast absorption during all the crop development stages.
