We continue to plant to ensure a continued production. Out planting rate is about 20.000 seedlings per week resulting in 1 ha – 1.25 per month. With this rate we should have around 14 ha planted by Apr 2020, and 20 ha by Dec 2020. These numbers are taking into account that we are not planting from Apr to early July due to the lower demand of pineapples in these months.
On this picture you can see how the new beds are planed. The white powder is fertilizer that we spread out prior to planting. This results is excellent results as the fertilizer is forced down into the ground when the slip / seedling is planted.
