Purpose of the treatment:
Avoid moisture and rot during and after cultivation.
Length of the experience:
Two groups of endives roots from a same share were placed in plastic baskets
One part (Group A) was treated with sulphur
added to the water.
The other part (Group B) was treated with penac-k and penac-p instead of sulphur
After 1 week, the endives from the
A group have an average size of 4 cm, while those from the B group have an average size between 5 and 6 cm.
The leaves of the endives treated with sulphur were burnt at the ends, but the penac treated group were not. At the end of cultivation,
endives from the A group were partially rotten, but those from penac group (B) were fit to eat.
Development of endives:
Group A , the development was like a flower form, turn to the outside,
Group B (penac), endives have a closed form.
On the same surface, we can normally get 8 kg endives, but with the penac,
we get over 1 Kg more
When using penac avoid using sulphur or copper
Endives are of good quality (no rot, closed) and the weight of the harvest is higher, without
