Spain: Benicarlo wants to grow organic artichokes under PDO
Salcedo warned that the first necessary step is to convert the fields to make them suitable for the planting of any organic product. To achieve this, they must have been free of chemical treatments for a long period of time, allowing the soil to recover and be in the best conditions.
According to Salcedo, one of the basic differences between traditional and organic cultivation methods is that "80% of the success of an organic harvest is determined by what is done before and during the planting." When growing them conventionally, the stakes are disinfected. In organic plantations, there are several alternative methods, such as planting in August, reducing the temperature ceiling through irrigation (watering the soil before planting), or resorting to thermotherapy, solarisation and rotations. All of this can be done in fields that do not contain traces of previous crops.
