Science - Agriculture / Tomato growing
Portuguese term or phrase: condução das plantas usadas
The context is as follows: Outro fator importante a considerar é a capacidade dos agricultores brasileiros para potencializar todos estes fatores, pois em sua maioria usam ainda formas rudimentares de produção, tais como irrigação por sulcos, CONDUÇÃO DAS PLANTAS USADAS há mais de 30 anos e uso de fertilizantes nitrogenados de forma indiscriminada.

Is this something to do with the behaviour of the plants grown over 30 yrs ago?

Suggestions would be much appreciated.

English translation:plant growing techniques
Explanation:
I read this as: plant growing techniques used over 30 years ago.
Or in other words, they are way behind the times.

In this context condução can refer to many aspects of tomato growing such as staking or caging the plants, training their growth pattern, etc.
