Poly-Cacao™ nutritional program provides balanced composition of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, and enriched with micro-nutrients. To enhance efficiency, Poly-Cacao™ products contain special adjuvants for better adhesion to the leaf surface, improved absorption and prolonged action. The efficiency of Poly-Cacao™ has been proved by field trials.

Poly-Cacao™ nutritional program considers the specific needs of the cacao

Time of application: “Young fruits grow slowly during first 40 days after pollination and are prone to wilting (average loss about 50 %); subsequent growth is more rapid up to 75 days; full maturity is reached in 150-180 days depending on climate”. (source: IFA)”.


Micro-nutrients: Boron and zinc deficiencies are common in cacao. To ensure adequate, healthy growth, Poly-Cacao™ formulae are enriched with high concentrations of boron and zinc.
