Plant once and do it right.

  • Ensure the planter is ready to go when required:

Establish a healthy and uniform plant population.

  • Aim for 6-8 plants/m established.
  • Gaps > 50cm will impact on yield, which will in turn affect the maturity of the crop. Gaps will be magnified in wider row configurations.

Increase planting rate or consider a variety change if conditions are less than ideal.
