In order to stimulate the basal sprouting of new stems, pinch when the first stem is induced. Handle with care to avoid damaging the growth points.
Cold temperature favors stem induction. After the pinch, spray the plants with 150 ppm of Giberelic Acid. Spray a second dose of Gilberic Acid to the stems that did not induce.
For a good rooting, keep the moisture at field capacity for the first 3 weeks after planting,. At week 5, lower irrigation to induce stems. During production, maintain a 5.0 – 5.5 l/m2 volume according to the environmental conditions and the organoleptic monitoring.
