1. End fertigation 50 days before harvest.

 

Note: Divide application into weekly amounts and apply with at least three hours of irrigation.
Fertilization recommendations should be adjusted according to leaves analysis.


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.
