HOLM OAK – CORK OAK

INTENSIVE HOLM OAK’S CROPS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF ACORNS

GRASSLAND DENSIFICATION

Irregular production of the traditional crops of holm oaks:
The traditional exploitation of grasslands presents serious problems that have a direct impact on their profitability.
baja_densidad
The average production in adult holm oaks its about 250 Kgs per hectare with huge interannual alterations. Oaks’ natural regeneration takes 20 years to bear fruit regularly.
The fungus of Phytophthora produces the disease commonly known as “la seca” that kills trees and spreads through every holm oak tree little by little (grassland).

Low density in holm oaks grasslands as a consequence of old trees, diseases, and very tough ecological and environmental conditions.
soluciones

Meristec, as a solution to the low and irregular production of acorns, came up with the development and implementation of an intensive crops of holm oaks and other Mediterranean Quercus with selected trees because of their great production. They would be new innovative crops with high productive capacity, with interesting implications in income increases for both the farmer and the owner of pastures. Densification with the best adult plants of the pasture previously selected and propagated on Phytophtora resistant clonal patterns is Meristec’s proposal to increase the current low density in the pastures.

Creation of an intensive acorn cultivation that will be able to produce acrons in 5 years.

7000 / 8000 kg of acorns will be produce each year.

Higher density of traditional crops of holm oaks repopulating with healthy and uniform productive varieties.

1

For its vigor and disease tolerance.

2

Creation of mother foot fields.

3

The productive varieties are grafted onto selected patterns to obtain fast-entering plants.

4

Plants available for intensive cultivation and for densification on farms. Quick entry into production with own materials.

WHAT IS MERISTEC OFFERING?
Meristec brings new options to improve management and profitability of pastures and other territories. In addition to intensive crops to produce acorns, we are able to offer selected cork oak plants for the production of cork in plantations, as well as mycorrhized oak plants with fungi of the tuber genus for truffle production.
