During the formation of the new groves, which takes about three years after planting, the trees are treated with the most modern products in order to ensure that they reach their adult life with a high productive potential and free from pests and diseases.
To ensure that this strict phytosanitary control is effective, fortnightly inspections are carried out. These inspections provide data to enable our agronomists and agricultural technicians to make the right decisions on the best treatment, the appropriate dosage, and especially, to act at the right time.
The chemical control of pests and diseases is carried out with the use of crop protection products that are registered with the responsible authorities.
A small proportion of the groves are irrigated. We use the drip irrigation system, one of the most efficient methods available, for the application of water and nutrients.
