Realization of new hazel implants " keys in hand".
We provide manpower and specialized companies for working the soil, tracking, preparation of holes and planting of plants.
The installation of a new hazel is a task to which we must pay special attention because, at this stage, you make choices that could affect the entire production and economic cycle of our future hazel. The low productivity of some hazel, is a direct result of plant works poorly executed or made in an approximate way, without proper knowledge and technical skills.
To create a new hazel grove, the soil must be prepared in mid-summer (July-August), when it is dry, using a deep recess (plowing or deep Ripping the ground).
Depending on the characteristics of the terrain, it must be made of a recess of at least 50/60 cm up to max of 80/90 cm. If there is an irrigation system in the hazel grove, the plant operations can also be done in the spring. When the recess in made, we proceed to the surface treatments of the soil with disc harrows or other, to make it fine. Thus prepared the soil is ready for planting new hazel grove.
After finishing the preparation of the ground, we proceed to the tracking system in relation to the chosen planting layout (distance between the rows of plants and distance on the row).
Once the tracking is done we prepare the handmade hole with a shovel with a diameter of 40- 50 cm and a depth of 35- 40 cm, or with special mechanical drills or mini excavators. Normally are positioned rods at the side of each seedling, which have the function both of support, both signaling.
It’s necessary the incorporation of some pollinators, in order to enhance the pollination and therefore the production capacity of the hazel grove.
Thanks to the mechanization of many cultural practices, such as pruning and mechanical harvesting, has been obliged to increase the distances between the rows. It is therefore recommended planting layout with distance between the files m. 6,00-5,5- and 5,00 m. 4,50-4,00-3,50 on the row.
HAZEL, UNIQUE CULTURE CONTRIBUTION TO THE PSR
The hazelnut is the only woody agrarian cultivation financed by 4.1.1 and 4.1.2 measure of the RDP 2014-2020.
SPECIAL HAZEL PLANT
The hazel plant has a characteristic bushy structure, with the very extensive radical apparatus and with a depth that varies depending on the characteristics of the soil. On the same plant has both male flowers, called catkins, pollen producers, both female flowers recognizable by the distinctive red “tuft”.
