PEREGRIN, reduce their CO2 emissions with more then 476 kg/ha in the production of Iceberg lettuce

SAT PEREGRIN reduces the CO2 emissions of the fertilisation of Iceberg Lettuce with 36,7 % thanks to ECOMETHOD.

SAT PEREGRIN (Almería – Spain) and BMS Micro-Nutrients (Bornem – Belgium) have managed, through a joint project, to reduce the CO2 emissions linked to the fertilization by 36,7% compared to the official recommendations of the Integrated Production in Andalusia, for the cultivation of Iceberg lettuce.

ECOMETHOD logo.jpg,  the accredited attestation of BMS Micro-Nutrients, allows through the implementation of specific Foliar Fertilisation programmes an important reduction of the amount of fertilizers applied to the soil. This results in a better and more rational and sustainable use of resources. The application of the foliar programme will be maximally combined with other treatments so that no extra applications are necessary.

After conducting an

exhaustive preliminary study of the soil and water conditions, and the needs of the crop and variety, the technical departments of BMS MN and of SAT PEREGRIN have designed a foliar programme using the products of the Belgian multinational which will support the plant development at all stages. In addition to being much more sustainable and respectful for the environment, the ECOMETHOD programme maintained the production high, as well in quantity as in quality.

With this, both companies are committed to a much more environmentally friendly production, and the implementation of a CERTIFICATION that provides a differential value to their final product, without giving up the highest production standards and continuing to meet all market requirements.
