A PRODUCTIVE ORCHARD, HIGH-QUALITY FRUIT
Arboriculture is a particularly demanding segment of agriculture. The new phytosanitary regulations that have recently been added to the requirements for high-quality yields, have complicated the tasks of arboriculturalists, who nonetheless have to ensure the sustainability of their orchards and operations.
It is therefore essential to consider the context of the operation holistically, including soil, trees, and the operator's practices.
Optimising the functioning of the soil remains a key factor in the sustainability of orchards. SOBAC offers solutions to achieve this objective.
Thanks to spontaneous micro-organisms from Marcel Mézy Technologies, the soil regains its biological balance through the creation of humus, resulting in improved soil structure, optimised nutrition for the trees, and easier water management (less irrigation, water stored in a form bound to humus, excess water drains away). Erosion and crop water stress are reduced, and irrigation can be cut down.
The improvement in the physical and biological properties of the soil enables better root and aerial growth. The humus and micro-organisms from Marcel Mézy Technologies allow a better management of the tree nutrition in accordance with their needs, controls their vigour, without excess nor blockage, and optimises the growth and longevity of the trees and plantings (better resumption).
All these parameters give the trees greater resistance to diseases and pests, and high-quality and high-yield output (taste, grade, shelf life, nutritional qualities).
Managing the soil and improving its properties are essential for maintaining productivity and adapting to environmental and economic constraints.
