PERLKA®

Fertilization of roses with PERLKA® in Ecuador

In the highlands of Ecuador, at an altitude of around 3.000 meters above the sea level, high quality roses are grown. The climate of the Andes is perfect for this delicate crop. Ecuadorian growers are proud to produce the world`s longest roses, whose stems can achieve a length of two meters.

Roses are a special gift, very demanded during celebrations like Valentin’s day or Mother’s day. From Ecuador, they are delivered all over the world, to people who want to express others their love, friendship or appreciation.

Perlka® - when Yield and Quality needs Soil Health

During their field tour mid-April Hyphen Zhang and Dr. Malte Römer travelled through the North of China running sale presentations for Perlka® and meeting growers at their farm sites. Here in China, where Perlka® is also known as Zhuangbobo®, the grower's awareness for soil health and soil quality is in the learning process. Particularly, in cropping areas such as Liaoning province, intensified greenhouse cultivation with small areas -often 1000m2 only- are subject to higher pressure of productivity and quality.  

 

Fertiliser meets application technique

On the program of the yearly sales conference was a meeting with the company Horsch in Schwandorf. Horsch is a very innovative company in the sector of tillage and seeding and offers various machines to combine the seeding and fertilising process.

Target of the meeting was to combine the knowledge of both companies and be always aware of the most modern possibilities for application of Perlka®.

Longtime evaluation of a Calcicum Cyanamide use at the Bavarian State Research Center for Agriculture

Over a period of 10 years the Bavarian State Research Center for Agriculture tested the effect of calcium cyanamide in potatoes. In 17 trials the effect of a fertilization with 400 kg/ha of calcium cyanamide was tested. The results showed, that in average approximately 5% of the potatoes did show less or no damage from wireworm infestations. The additionally marketable tubers payed off more than three times the additional costs incurred.
