Experimental field for the biological cultivation and the varietal selection of the carob tree..
Carob SA has its own experimental field of carob trees in Manacor, Mallorca. The plantation has been designed to study the different varieties and behavior of the tree in a system of care and irrigation. The area of the plantation is 40 hectares with 5 separate plots of 8 hectares where 5 varieties will be studied. Our plantation will be free from pesticides and any other chemical treatments. We are also developing our own compost made from the skin of the carob seeds. This will contribute towards our goal of recycling all waste from our manufacturing process of the locust bean gum.
We want to encourage, study and improve the cultivation of the carob tree, increase the productivity of the trees along with the yield of pods and seeds.
