Prime-Fruit-Management

The goal in fruit production must be to harvest as many as possible fruits that have
the same internal and external quality .
That is the way to increase consumption of fresh fruit.
This should also be the basis of your daily efforts.

                          
 

Soil improvement and fertilization

It starts with the soil analysis. Outside of the EU it is done by Brookside Laboratories in
Ohio/USA. Within of the EU it is done in Thurlab/Switzerland.

In general we recommend  mineral and organic fertilization as well as foliar and fruit
feeding. In this respect we are working with a team of associates in New Zealand, USA
and Europe. Our results are consistent high yields and improved shelf life of the fruit.

Optimum tree management in existing plantings

Good light penetration is necessary for fruit size, bud development, fruit firmness and colour.
This helps to reduce biannual bearing. Better fruit quality in the lower part of the tree
leads to higher yields and consistent packouts.
Our consulting will lead to reduced winter  and summer pruning and in reduced costs
for hand thinning.

                          

Planting density depends on variety and climatic conditions.

Our advice for high density systems will give you the following advantages:

- rapid yield increases
- more mechanization and less hand labor
- simple work schedules
- small and slender top combined with maximum yield and quality.

This also results in reduced  amounts of materials used and in reduced application time.
Our references:

-Operations in Europe, North –and South America of different sizes (1-500 ha)
-Consulting in nine different countries.
-We can supply you any time with addresses of producers of apples and pears, soft fruits and berries.

             

 

New varieties and strains

Our Superspindle system  will lead to a higher percentage of well coloured fruit with
longer shelf life.
Full production is reached in record time and new varieties can be produced in large
quantities and super quality.
Therefore you can react very quickly to new trends and developments.

Higher sugar content and increased firmness

In the very near future sugar and firmness will be measured in the packing process
and it will be part of your grade turnout.
With our unique combination of soil-and tree management we look forward to these
quality challenges with great optimism.

Our customers are already well equipped for this new era.
