For optimal production, Durian should be grown under specific and well managed conditions. Durian trees, as do all trees, require specific nutrients in order to develop properly. While many of these nutrients come from fertilizer or compost that is added after planting, the natural makeup of the soil is imperative to know. Tree roots absorb nutrients as well as water and oxygen with root absorption key to feeding a tree. Sand soil conditions must be appropriate for a good root system to develop. Soil sample tests measure soil pH, texture, and structure, as well as what nutrients are there and which are lacking, all of which are important to growth. According to the content of nutrients in the soil obtained by chemical analysis, it is easier to determine the post planting activities required in order to achieve high and quality Durian yields. This information along with site surveys including an analysis of topographical maps, elevation levels and other business related factors allows Durian Harvests to effectively judge the business feasibility of sites.
