Lemons Qualitative Characteristics Improvement

Through Research Programs in Greece and abroad, Agrology proved that the superior quality and integrated innovative technologies of the Specialized Nutrition products make the difference in crops from the very first applications!

Our ultimate goal is to demonstrate that the Agrology Specialized Nutrition Programs constitute a profitable investment for producers, as the financial benefits more than cover the cost of the additional applications!

One such Research Program on Lemons of the Maglinos Xylokastro variety was carried out in Chania in collaboration with Dr. Vasileios Ziogas, Trainee Researcher at the Institute of Olive Tree, Subtropical Crops and Viticulture of the Hellenic Agricultural Organization (ELGO) DIMITRA.

The researchers divided the crop in 2 sections. The name of one section was Control and the second’s was Agrology Program.  In the Agrology section, there were complementary interventions with the Specialized Nutrition Products Gravital Force SC, aiming to Lemons Qualitative Characteristics improvement.
