Stage 4

Vegetative growth

After initial root development, the plants concentrate on vegetative development of stalks and leaves. The primary elements nitrogen and magnesium and the trace elements iron and manganese, in particular, are of extra importance for the formation of chlorophyll (leaf green).

Stage 5 Growing point formation
Stage 5

Growing point formation

At the end of the growth season, the phase arrives in which the young plants become heavier and start forming growing points. These growing points on the plant develop into vegetative (leaves) and generative (flowers and fruits) plant parts and are crucial for production in the following season. There is a strong relationship between the number of growing points and the final production per plant. Give the plant the right (quantity of) nutrients in time so it can accumulate reserves in preparation for the harvest period.
