GAMA Avocado Trial

Effect of Bioamino-L Usage in Avocado Trees. Panquehue, Fifth Region, Chile. 2018/2019 Season. (GAMA)

The trial was carried out by GAMA in a Hass orchard on a hillslope. Mexicola rootstock, 2009 was the planting year. Planting framerwork: 3 × 3. The aim was to assess the effect of different dosage of Bioamino-L on avocado trees. 

Two doses of Bioamino-L were tested (160 L/ha and 80 L/ha), and were applied in two partial applications during the first and the second root flush.  

Results show a powerful root formation (new, active and healthy roots) on the area where Bioamino-L was applied.  Moreover, a large number of earthworms and other beneficial insects can be seen, demonstrating an activation of soil life. Regarding yield, it shows an increase in the number of fruits per plant and a higher yield in kilos per plant, and the effect being greater at the highest dose. When reviewing size distribution, a greater amount of fruit was observed in sizes ≥ 50 in contrast to control. The 160 L/ha dose achieved a 70% increase in the total yield and a 64% increase in the sizes ≥ 50, against control without applications. 

Fruit quality analysis at harvest and post-harvest showed how the increase in yield had no adverse effects on quality.  


By activating soil life and strongly enhancing root development, Bioamino-L achieved yield increases, a greater number of kilograms harvested in the most profitable sizes, and thus preserving fruit quality.  Being the 160 L/ha dose the one that got the best results.

Stronger cherries this season with Aminochem’s nutritional program

The last two seasons have represented the most challenging export programs for cherry production in our country, both marked mainly by the Covid 19 pandemic, which generated significant logistics problems in the arrival of our fruit in the main destination markets, causing serious problems in the condition of the fruits of those varieties produced in semi-late and late zones, where Lapins – the main variety planted in our country – together with Regina – the main variety established from the Ñuble region to the south, were the ones that were mostly seen affected by long waits at destination.
