Gijnlim is ideally suited to fertile sandy and clay soils. The more fertile the soil is, the longer in the season the spear thickness remains good. Extensive practical experience has shown that the best results for white asparagus cultivation are achieved with a planting density of 3 – 3.5 plants per linear metre. This plant density can be increased by approximately 30% if the asparagus is harvested green. Higher planting densities give a higher yield, but can lead to a more rapid decrease in spear thickness. Gijnlim appreciates irrigation if drought occurs while the foliage is developing. Thanks to its natural earliness, Gijnlim is ideally suited to extra forcing techniques, such as anti-condensation covers, mini tunnels and plastic mulch.
