After carrying out an intensive study of the plot and knowing the agronomic characteristics of the area, an economic study of the plantation will be carried out where the installation costs of the surface to be planted will be known (work of machinery, labor, raw materials, etc.), as well as the estimated income from production in each period.
Aptitude and potential test
It is very important to know the existence of limiting factors in the plot, both bioclimatic and agronomic (water availability, ponding, physical-chemical composition, Verticillum infection, frost …), since in this way the potential of the plantation in each terrain and we will be able to anticipate possible problems that may arise and apply quick solutions, thereby reducing risks.
Analisys and Interpretation
From NOCCIS we do the necessary analyzes to carry out the plantation in the best possible conditions, evaluating all the variables and perfectly knowing the conditions and particularities of each plot. For this, different analyzes of the elements that can affect the plantation are carried out, such as water analysis, where the properties of the water to be used for irrigation (salinity, heavy materials, organic and inorganic compounds), will be studied.
In the same way, soil analyzes are made, where the edaphic characteristics where the planting is to be carried out will be revealed. Thus, not only will the texture of the plot be known (permeability, edaphic characteristics, etc.), but it will also be possible to know, for example, the presence of fungi such as Verticillium (knowing the concentration if applicable). If desired, NOCCIS also covers services such as the analysis of plant organs (foliar, petiolar …) for the knowledge of the nutritional status and requirements of nutritive substances, thus making known the possible deficiencies that the plant may have. The information provided by these analyzes identifies nutritional alterations and helps to propose subscriber plans. Phytopathological analyzes are also carried out where the problem is diagnosed, the pathogen is isolated and identified. The identification of phytopathologies helps attack and prevention through appropriate action plans against pests or diseases.
All the analyzes carried out by NOCCIS rely on our experienced interpretation of the results, offering possible solutions and recommendations to our clients.
Advice and design
All our clients have an advisory service for their plantations, both when starting the plantation and once it has started, where the study of the particularities of each plot will be carried out. NOCCIS will develop a rational design of the plantation, adapted to each plot, where various factors will be taken into consideration, such as the area of the plantation, the variety or varieties suitable for the area, the plantation framework or its orientation, among others. . Various alternatives are offered depending on the need of each client, where the total mechanization of the crop, the establishment of drip irrigation or the possibility of incorporating a fertilizer system through fertigation, among other options is proposed.
All kinds of advice with reference to the plantation, is contemplated by our agronomic expert technicians, such as advice on fertilizers and phytosanitary treatments (periods, quantities, types of treatments …) , methods and periods of collection, measurements and evaluations, etc., offering solutions to possible problems that may arise.
Setting out and marking the plantation
In order to offer our clients the best plant material, NOCCIS supplies a quality plant, with maximum health and the best genetics, from the selection of the best genetic material and thanks to plant propagation methods based on the most advanced techniques.

In the same way, we advise on the realization of the most suitable plantation framework for each terrain, thus achieving greater use and management of the plantations.
