Effective and efficient growing practices from Viveros California 🍓🌱
The growth of our company – strawberry plant specialist – is no coincidence. It is the fruit of continuous professional development from a team that always looks forward, even during these difficult times that we are facing.
The key to our ‘forward thinking’ is rooted in our teams’ continuous training and focusing our efforts on points of interest, such as plant improvement programmes and searching for cutting-edge crop techniques that make our products stand out from the rest.
We understand that the strawberry nursery industry’s situation is increasingly difficult, which is why searching for alternatives is at the forefront of our company’s agenda. Nature itself or potential diseases can hinder our plants’ development, which represents nothing but a challenge for our R&D+i team, who strive to find the best formula for achieving the best performance in the shortest time frame possible.
Furthermore, a great resource for overcoming the obstacles we find along the way is introducing successful new varieties that adapt to work and the fields belonging to our company, a strawberry plant specialist. For example, one of Viveros California’s most recent success stories was the arrival and implementation of what is now one of our star products, Marisol, a plant that is more valued and in demand every season.
The sector faces a series of handicaps that we must overcome, including the mortality rate that these plants suffer once planted in the production area. That’s why, at Viveros California, we believe this responsibility belongs to both nursery specialists and growers. Antonio Arjona, director of our firm, sincerely believes that when faced with this situation, “there is enough margin after transplanting to report any possible issues, but once that time is over, the nursery can’t take the responsibility.”
The time when strawberry plant growing was at its peak coincided with using methyl bromide for soil fumigation. At present, soil diseases have grown since bromide and other disinfectants were withdrawn, as Mr Arjona highlights, “Every year, we have to keep our eyes peeled for critical-use authorisations.” In any case, Viveros California is prepared for any changes ahead.
Growing, as we know it today, will have to change sooner rather than later and will no doubt head for greater effectiveness and efficiency. Our company’s experts, who specialise in strawberry plants, are focusing their efforts on a future where off-the-ground growing and seedlings will become more prominent.
Our company –strawberry plant specialist – will always employ practices that strive for effectiveness, efficiency and respect the environment. We will always endeavour to maintain the quality of our products and services.
