Yields are traditionally low due to:
- Old varieties
- Poor husbandry
- Root damage in wet season
- Heavy mulch from old foliage
A foliar programme of OMEX Folicao was applied at 4 l/ha in Feb/Mar and again in Aug/Sep. OMEX Folicao is a highly concentrated suspension fertilizer containing NPK, magnesium and micro-nutrients balanced specifically for cocoa. Regular applications will improve the quality and yield of cocoa beans.
- OMEX Folicao applied during the dry season improves top growth and promotes flower initiation.
- OMEX Folicao has a very positive impact on the performance of the cocoa, with more abundant and larger pods and improved quality cocoa beans.
- Yield increases in the range of 20 – 100% according to anecdotal grower testimony with OMEX Folicao
OMEX Folicao is a high concentration liquid foliar fertiliser, designed to be applied to the foliar parts of the cocoa tree and many other crops, for more information:
