Estudo de viabilidade de utilização de Fertisol em plantações de castanheiro

Zeolite, the magic rock also for chestnut
This study was supported by the stakeholders Ana Antunes S.A. and ServiRuri Ld. with the aim to analyse the effect of zeolites (Fertisol®) on chestnut growth. Under the zeoponic conditions of this trial, chestnut increased their gas exchange rates, namely photosynthesis and transpiration more than 50%, suggesting that the aplication of zeolites during plantation (or alternatively in cultures already installed) could be highly recommended due to the positive effect on water retention.
