GALICIA-VILLANUEVA, Silvia et al. Experimental plantation of nopal for evaluation of fertilization and mucilage extraction systems. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.5, pp.1087-1099. ISSN 2007-0934.

This paper analyzes aspects related to the cultivation of nopal in the Milpa Alta Delegation in México City. First a comparative study of treatment types for nopal fertilization was carried out, which was carried out through an experimental process where yields and characteristics with different fertilizers were analyzed, which allowed to identify a system based on leachate as an alternative with greater efficiency. On the other hand, a methodology was established for the extraction of nopal mucilage through selection, drying and grinding to elaborate an additive for laboratory test that allowed to estimate sugars content and acidity level. In order to carry out the sampling process, an experimental plot was build that allowed to cultivate the nopal with the climatic conditions and soil properties of the region, as well as in different fertilization modalities to evaluate yields and quality.

Palavras-chave : compost; fertilization; substrates.
