    a thorough knowledge of the edaphic parameters is necessary to install a profitable cultivation. Depending on the location, the cultivation site (outdoor, tunnel, greenhouse), the availability of fresh and/or saline water... an adapted irrigation program has to be scheduled. That's why we insist on a first year guidance on the establishment of a saline crop.
