Spanish company Agroconsulting Internatinal S.A. has developed Nutritional Advanced Diagnostics (DNA), an innovative system that interprets nutritional values in olive groves, which allows foliar analysis at any time of year.
As reported by the company in a statement, once the olive campaign is over, the olive tree begins its natural process of renewal and flowering, the perfect moment to know its growing state and provide the necessary production cares towardsthe next crop.
One of the key tools for knowing a tree’s nutritional status is olive leaf analysis, together with soil analysis, which allows researchers to detect nutritional problems and develop fertilization plans adapted to the real needs of each farm.
Agroconsulting explained that usually the plant tissue analysis is performed during the month of July, during the summer shutdown of the olive tree, obtaining an accurate nutritional assessment of that particular season.
However, the company insisted that this methodology is “insufficient” to measure the continuous nutritional status of olive in its annual development cycle.Developed innovative system that interprets nutritional values in olive groves,
