High-tech pomelo planting techniques create outstanding yields

Green-skinned pomelo is a fruit that brings high nutritional value and contributes to economic improvement for producers. However, this variety, if grown by traditional methods, will give uneven yield and quality. That’s why farmers started to learn and apply high technology in growing pomelo. What interests you the most in Grapefruit planting techniques high technology? We invite you to learn about this topic through the article below.

New technology pomelo growing trend

Branch agriculture applying advanced techniques and new technologies such as mechanization, biotechnology, computerization, automation systems… to bring good agricultural products and shorten time and labor resources.

The transformation of high-tech pomelo growing model also helps farmers adjust the growth and development conditions of the tree and prevent the development of pests and diseases. New technology pomelo planting techniques also help to increase the quality of output products, increasing income for farmers.

Environmental requirements for growing pomelos

Grapefruit is not a fruit suitable for all climate and soil conditions. Therefore, a high-tech pomelo growing environment needs basic standards such as:

  • Temperature: The most suitable temperature for pomelo trees to grow and develop well is 23-29 degrees.
  • Water: The need for irrigation of pomelo trees is relatively high, especially during flowering and fruiting. However, pomelos will not tolerate too much water causing flooding.
  • Light: The most suitable light intensity for stable growth of pomelo trees is equivalent to about 9 am.
  • Soil: The surface of the planting soil must be at least 0.6mm thick. The soil must have porosity, good drainage, ventilation and less salinity.

Criteria for choosing good seedlings

  • Between plants must be homogenous in terms of morphological characteristics, genetic characteristics and there is no difference of more than 5%.
  • Plants must be standard varieties, grow well and have been removed from pests and diseases.

Grapefruit planting techniques and care

  1. Garden Design

For new land, it is necessary to dig consecutive ditches for the purpose of releasing alum, saline and raising the cultivation layer. In particular, it is necessary to build more pond banks to protect crops, pay attention to stabilize water levels in ditches and gardens.

Note, there should be an additional water intake pipe and a water regulator to avoid waterlogging and insufficient water. Consecutive ditches should be dug in the north-south direction so that the plants receive more uniform light.

If it is an old soil garden, farmers need to pay attention to planting tissue in certain locations to avoid old pests.

Around the garden should be designed more windbreak trees to limit damage to plants in the season of high winds and storms.

  1. Grapefruit planting techniques

Green-skinned pomelo can be planted at any time of the year, however, planting pomelos at the beginning of the rainy season will take less time and effort to water.

Green-skinned grapefruit is most suitable when planted in May – June each year. If farmers have conditions to irrigate in the dry season, they can also plant pomelos after the rainy season has just ended.

Grapefruit seedlings must meet the standard conditions of growth and disease free. Especially the seedling must have a clear origin.

  • Planting density and spacing

Normally, the average planting distance is from 4m – 6m. Thus, 100m2 can be 35-50 trees.

  • Tissue preparation and planting method

Normally, the soil for the tissue will be alluvial soil or topsoil. You need to mix the soil backfill with organic fertilizer and lime. When planting, you need to dig a hole in the middle of the tissue and fertilize the bottom of the hole, covering with a thin layer of soil.

Then use a knife to remove the bottom of the potting soil to place the plant in the potting soil, paying attention to place the grafted eye of the plant in the direction of the wind to avoid splitting the buds. Farmers need stakes to keep the seedlings from being damaged by the outside environment.

  • Irrigation and drainage

Grapefruit needs to be provided with an adequate amount of water when it is in the seedling stage and at the time of flowering and fruiting. During the dry season, pomelos need to be watered regularly. In the rainy season, it is necessary to apply a drainage system so that the plants do not become waterlogged.

Grapefruit receive enough water for irrigation will grow and develop well, giving high yield
