First trial with improved wicks started in El Bruc

As part of the improvements of the Cocoon, our partners from Volterra and CREAF set up the first trial for the testing of alternative types of wicks (the wicks ensure effective water transport by capillarity from the Cocoon to the roots of the tree) , during the execution of the spring plantation in El Bruc. The new wicks are fully biodegradable and the technicians of Land Life Company foresee that they will further improve the functionality of the Cocoon.

The first trial is executed in a stand of 50 Cherry trees.

The wicks of the Cocoon feed the plant with the vital water to survive its first year in the field.Se ubicó la parcela de ensayo en un terreno homogéneo, para minimizar las influencias de factores exteriores en los resultados.
