Pequi seedlings

Sought by the unmistakable flavor and much appreciated in the Brazilian Midwest, pequi comes winning supporters all over the country and even abroad. Predicting this, Recanto Agua Limpa, based in Canarana-MT, stimulated the production of commercial seedlings with the variety Caryocar coriaceum for the excellent performance verified in the production of pulp with large and well developed fruits, through a selection process and by the resistance of the crop and adaptation to different regions of the country.

Low cost of implementation and maintenance of the crop, easy management and guaranteed market of the pequi, encourage producers who see in the promising crop an additional safe source to compose the income of the property.
Rich in Betacarotene (anticancer), has an aphrodisiac action and is the richest source of existing "edible vitamin" A; which is good for hair, skin and nails.
Indicated by IBAMA for reforestation, pequi has been gaining ground after being almost decimated to give way to soybean and other crops.

The planting consorted with other plants or animals has been widely used for the full use of the area, and the recommended spacing is 10m x 10m - commercial, 15m x 15m - consortium, and 8m x 8m in line for ranch runner.

The commercialization takes place with the sale of the "In Natura" or canned fruits, with the extraction of the oil for use in biodiesel, in the cosmetics industry, in the kitchen, and the wood has wide use for both palanques as in the manufacture of furniture (high strength and durability). The dough can be used in making homemade soap and can also be frozen for various uses, such as: in baking, in sweets, in frying, in baking in microwaves, for ice cream, juices and liqueurs.

MEASURES OF THE COVAS: pits of 40 cm in diameter by 60 cm of depth are used. (Pivotal root)

PLANT SPACING: 10m spaces are used between plants and between rows if it is exclusively planted with pequi; 12m between rows and between plants if it is for intercropping with other smaller intercalary crops, 8m for in-line and 15m between plants and between rows if it is planted to form shaded pastures or under pequi cultivation (note that the position of planting must respect the axis of sunrise and sunset so that the grass receives the sun in its entirety).

COVAS FERTILIZATION: 100 gr of single superphosphate for every 10 percentage points of clay in the soil; 30 g of potassium chloride, 15 g of zinc sulfate, 6 g of copper sulfate, 6 g of manganese sulfate, 1 g of borax and 0.1 g of ammonium molibidate, ie 158.1 g per Ps - It is important to remember that the fertilizers must be well mixed with the whole soil of the pit to avoid toxicity and nutritional imbalances in the seedlings.

COVERAGE FERTILIZATION: It is recommended, for greater development of the seedlings, a coverage of 30 grams of ammonium sulphate and 15 g of potassium chloride / pit every 40 days until the end of the rainy season, which tends to increase the "glue" index of the seedlings and accelerate / anticipate the first fruit production in a year To ensure a greater glue of the seedlings, it is necessary to soak the pit during or after planting (planting in mud or mud).

1.) Control cutter ants and termite mounds that may form in order to damage seedlings.
2.) Do the crowning of the pits to avoid competition with weeds (initially manual crowning and then can use glyphosate).
