Bigger apples and higher yield with DCM VIVISOL®

The addition of the soil improver DCM VIVISOL® MINIGRAN® ensures a rich and active soil life and optimal soil health, which is essential when replanting fruit trees (apple trees followed by apple trees, or pear trees followed by pear trees). Its high content of organic matter enriches the soil with humus and ensures a crumbly soil structure, which improves the rooting of young trees. DCM VIVISOL® MINIGRAN® also increases soil fertility and the added bacteria Bacillus sp. improve the availability of the nutrients present (including phosphorus). The result? The plant roots develop better and the young fruit trees grow more easily and produce more and better yields, as replanting tests show.

Trial: DCM VIVISOL® applied when replanting fruit trees

The apple trees that received DCM VIVISOL® MINIGRAN® in the planting hole when they were planted, clearly showed more vegetative force from the first year. Their trunk diameter was larger and the desired tree volume was achieved more quickly. The flowering rate and the number of apples actually picked were higher for the trees that received DCM VIVISOL® MINIGRAN® at the start. More apples were picked, in pieces and in kilos, and the apples were also bigger. The quality of the harvested apples was also better. The fruits were harder, had a better size and better colouring.
