Advanced cultivation, natural know-how
The apple is a precious good for Styrian apple farmers. Family farms and orchards, most of them small in scale, carefully pamper the apple from the blossom to the harvest. The experience of many generations in combination with the latest scientific findings ensure that Styrian apples receive the best possible treatment. To protect the valuable fruit from thunderstorms, about 90 percent of the orchards are equipped with hail-protection nets. Cultivation follows the guidelines of integrated production. The lowest possible use of chemical agents, use of beneficial organisms, targeted cultivation and the observance of optimum harvest windows are all fine tuned to each other. A significant achievement of the successful cultivar policy was the relocation of the individual varieties to those areas that offer the best conditions for them.
