Experimental field for the biological cultivation and varietal selection of the carob tree.
CAROB SA has its own experimental field of carob trees in Manacor, Mallorca. The plantation is designed to study the different varieties and the behavior of the tree in a care and irrigation system. The extension of the plantation is 40 hectares with 5 separate 8-hectare plots where 5 varieties will be studied.
Our plantation will be free of pesticides and other chemicals. We are also developing a natural fertilizer based on the remains of the skin of the locust bean seed, this being one of our objective, as well as minimizing the waste generated and recycling the waste from our locust bean gum manufacturing process.
We want to promote, study and improve the cultivation of the carob tree, increase the productivity of the trees along with the yield of the pods and seeds.
