Green leafhopper in vineyard: how to deal with this pest

Mosquito verde en viña

The detection of green leafhopper pests in vineyard has put wine growers on alert at a key moment of the grape season, just a few weeks after harvesting time begins. Several official bodies have warned of the substantial increase of mobile forms of green leafhopper in vineyard, as high population scenarios have appeared in which it is foreseeable to exceed the treatment thresholds.

In Spain, the Department of Plant Protection of the Generalitat Valenciana (Valencia) has issued warnings to producers in the central area of the province. The same occurs with the Network of Alert and Phytosanitary Information of the Junta de Andalucía  as several spots have been detected in the province of Malaga. In Toledo, ASAJA  has also confirmed the presence of this pest in vineyards in the district of Méntrida and La Torre de Esteban Hambrán. In these areas, caution is even greater after the devastating plague that farmers suffered last crop.

Green leafhopper in vineyard results in an insect between 2 and 3 mm in length. It is placed on the underside of leaves and is used to fly at the slightest movement. Green leafhopper attacks the nerves of leaves, as it feeds on the plant sap. Its effect is extremely detrimental because it stops the vegetative development and, consequently, the fruit ripening. Visually, the most evident consequence is the marginal desiccation of leaves, which turn yellow.

The most intense presence of green leafhopper in vineyard usually occurs during summer because of high temperatures, warm and dry weather conditions. Economic losses for growers can be significant because the effects can be extended in the post-attack season, with a possible decrease in sprout vigor and crop yield.

Treatments for green leafhopper in vineyard

The scenario caused by the proliferation of green leafhopper in vineyard (Empoasca vitis Goethe) in Spain has also occurred in Europe, as a substantial increase in the population of cicadellidae has been observed in recent years. Seipasa has produced Pirecris®, a natural biopesticide showing an excellent performance in the control of several species of cicadellidae in vineyard.

The active ingredient of Pirecris® guarantees its efficacy and knock-down effect. In addition, the formulation of a high technology product has allowed Seipasa to obtain the product, guaranteeing a ‘green’ profile based on a plant matrix that enhances the action.

Pirecris® efficacy against the green leafhopper has been tested through more than 18 field trials conducted in several countries. One of them is the one carried out in the south of France during the summer of 2014. For this trial, a complete randomized block with 4 repetitions and 5 treatments was unfolded: an untreated control, Pirecris at 3 different doses (1; 1.5 and 2l / ha) and a reference chemical pyrethroid (0.125 l / ha). Two applications (A and B) were performed: the first one, on July 2014 and the second 7 days later. The number of larvae in 50 inner leaves was evaluated at 3 and 7 days after each application.

As shown in figure 1, the first application of Pirecris® significantly reduced E.vitis populations. These populations were lower than the ones in the control treatment for all doses tested.

Figure 1.- Evolution of the number of E.vitis larvae found in 50 leaves. A: first application; B: second application. Samples made at 0, 3 and 7 days after each application.

Green leafhopper populations remained low in all treatments with Pirecris during subsequent samplings, especially after the second application. The results are similar to those obtained by the reference treatment. The efficacies obtained in this trial were high (about 90%), especially with the medium and high doses (1.5 and 2 l / ha), surpassing those obtained by the reference pyrethroid (see figure 2).

The results prove that Pirecris® is a solid and efficient alternative for the treatment of the green leafhopper in the vineyard. This solution, 100% natural and free of chemical residues, is fully aligned with the needs of producers and consumers towards a rational, sustainable and environmentally friendly agriculture.

Strategies for grapevine trunk diseases

 

Enfermedades de madera de la vid

Grapevine trunk diseases are among the most serious problems affecting crops at the present time. When summer comes, cultivation of grapevine enters a decisive period. Preserving it in optimal conditons is fundamental, as it results in a pivotal element supporting many local and regional economies.

This is the reason why studies on grapevine trunk diseases proliferate at a key moment for the sector. Farmers are struggling to look after the current harvest, but cannot overlook the following season. In July, the city of Reims (France) hosts an international conference with a large group of experts on this subject.

Grapevine trunk diseases have become more evident in the last decade because of the advances in knowledge concerning fungal species taking part in the process of wood deterioration.

Intensified production, the aging of vineyards and the long period of time that may elapse between the penetration of fungi and the display of the first symptoms (in some cases, grapevine trunk diseases may already exist in those seedlings coming from the plant nursery) are factors that may explain why farmers are increasingly being affected by these diseases.

The absence of registered fungicidal active substances capable of dealing with these pathogens leads to reinforce preventive measures to restrain fungi from entering or penetrating wood. Practices and knowledge developed for years suggest farmers to use a pruning system that minimizes cuts, since the transmission of grapevine trunk diseases is produced through pruning wounds.

In addition to avoiding thick wounds, not only do cultural practices recommend pruning in dry weather conditions but it is also important to let a few days pass after an episode of rainfall.

Advances in grapevine trunk diseases also point to use hot-water treatment as a method to reduce infections caused by wood fungi in propagating material. Application of hot-water treatment has been approached by David Gramaje, researcher of the Instituto de Ciencias de la Vid y el Vino (ICVV) at the international meeting promoted by Phytoma in March 2017.

Grapevine trunk diseases: activation of the defense system

Preventive actions also recommend using treatments capable of stimulating plant’s defense system. Superbrotal is a natural solution produced by Seipasa. This product performs as an activator of the processes involved in sprouting and plant structuring. Superbrotal stimulates the defense mechanisms due to its main compound, which induces the synthesis of those proteins involved in the immune system.

Not only does Superbrotal activate self-defenses, but it also strengthens the vascular bundles of the plant, generating a better translocation of nutrients in favor and against the gravitational gradient. It results in a balanced crop, with a powerful, structured and efficient plant development. Crops gain in size and foliar architecture, improving its ability to overcome stresses.

To set an example, there is a trial conducted by Seipasa in grapevine between 2014 and 2016 (see figure 1). The results show the inducing effect of Superbrotal. The trial was performed on a plot where vascular diseases had been experienced before. After the first campaign in 2014, disease incidence increased in the control area. However, as observed in figure 1, Superbrotal was able to improve sap flow by reducing the percentage of affected vineyards in the following campaigns (2015 and 2016).

Figure 1.- Incidence of grapevine trunk disease.

Stimulation of the defense system helps to prevent stresses. Prevention may become a suitable strategy to avoid the penetration or progression of fungal diseases.

Bioestimuante radicular

Root biostimulant in spring vegetable crops

Bioestimuante radicular

Applying a root biostimulant in spring vegetables crops for a powerful development results in a pivotal factor to ensure an optimum yield.

Crops must cope with a wide range of unfavorable situations so as to achieve optimum performance. Together with pests and diseases, and within the context of climate change, there are more and more situations of environmental stress occurring. These factors lead to production decline, both in quality and quantity. Thus, regulating plant growth ends in a highly important factor, which will mark the productivity of crops.

In crops, a powerful starting is always synonymous with safe harvesting. Therefore, the treatments applied in initial stages play an essential role in the later development. With the calendar well into the month of May, the last frosts of spring have been left behind. The weeks that arrive ahead will take us into summer.

Thus, hot days with many hours of sunshine begin to become common, creating a favorable scenario to obtain the maximum yield in summer crops like tomato, pepper, eggplant, melon or watermelon. The cultivation of vegetables in spring has begun during winter months by preparing the seedbeds. Later, in spring, we proceed to field transplantation.

In southern regions like Almeria, this calendar is slightly modified when it comes to greenhouse plantations. Seedbeds have been prepared in July, and transplantation is delayed until the months of August-September.

Irrespective of the calendar, the application of a root biostimulant is well recommended within the first stages of cultivation. By using it, a broad, dense and branched root development is promoted in the plant.

A better plant development results in crops being more tolerant to the most unfavorable environmental conditions. Crops are also more capable of resisting disease entry. In addition, it allows better absorption of nutrients, so that apart from achieving better yields (and fewer losses), the quality of the crop will be higher.

Root biostimulant: growth and nutrient uptake

Seiland is a biostimulant to be applied at the time of transplantation, just within the first stage of cultivation in the field. The solution produced by Seipasa contains a mixture of microorganisms colonizing the ecological niche that roots occupy and creating a biological barrier that is beneficial for crops.

Seiland is high in organic matter. It provides carbon and nitrogen to the soil. These elements are needed for the installation and development of microorganisms. Its action allows to colonize the root area so as to protect it from being attack by pathogens.

The microorganisms of Seiland provide substances activating defense mechanisms, as well as elements and substances beneficial to plant development. The application of Seiland also allows to stimulate the activity of the microbial flora of the soil. Therefore, nutrients are more accessible to plants, allowing a more efficient use of fertilizers.

The application of a root biostimulant in spring vegetable crops is especially visible from initial stages. Not only does this process contribute to a correct plant development, but it also helps the plant to complete its cycle properly. It means not being conditioned by the different stresses in initial stages, when crops are more vulnerable.

Calcium in crops: why proper assimilation is important

calcio en los cultivos

Calcium in crops plays a key role in agricultural development. Its existence guarantees firmer fruits. Agricultural calcium is necessary not only in structural strengthening of walls but also in the elasticity of the vegetal tissue. It is essential to have resistant and healthy plants.

Calcium shortage severely affects the quality of fruits and crop yield. This is the reason why an inappropriate assimilation can cause losses in the market value. Fortunately, there are treatments to improve calcium assimilation in crops. Its application is markedly necessary at the beginning of spring, when climatic conditions such as thermal amplitude between day and night can subject plants to stressful situations.

Calcium in crops is transported internally by xylem, but calcium has low mobility within the plant. Translocation results in a difficult process, since only a small percentage of calcium is translocated to the fruits from the surrounding leaves.

There are many climatic factors affecting calcium assimilation in crops. High temperatures on sunny days, wet and dry winds, and low relative humidity may become factors promoting high levels of transpiration. When this transpiration stream is too high towards the foliar organs, contribution of calcium to the fruit is restricted. In other words, for calcium is more difficult to reach those organs with low transpiration rate.

As we saw in an earlier entry, calcium deficiency in crops is observed in alterations such as BER (blossom end rot) in tomato and pepper. In strawberry or lettuce symptoms are perceived at the end of the expanding leaves (tip burn).

Guaranteeing contribution of calcium in crops

By evaluating calcium status in plants, it is possible to diagnose disorders like BER. In order to prevent such deficiencies, Seipasa has developed the Calcisei line of products. These products, formulated with calcium, play a pivotal role in crop development. Besides contributing to prevent deficiencies such as BER, tip burn or bitter pit in tomato and apple, the Calcisei line is specifically prepared for the structural strengthening of cell walls and membranes, as well as the management of soils with high content of salt.

Within this line, Calimax is a treatment designed to prevent calcium deficiencies in crops while confronting physiopathies. Calimax improves soil structure, promotes optimal root development and regulates imbalances due to lack of calcium.

Guadal Ca has been produced to avoid problems of internal decay and cracked fruits, as well as to confront apical rot, tip burn in horticultural crops. Lack of calcium usually concentrates on young leaves and fruits, since these are the organs having major transpiration difficulties. Guadal Ca is especially recommended for foliar applications in the second half of the crop cycle given the rapid absorption and total safety.

Apart from the contribution of calcium, the organic matter content of the Calcisei line brings significant benefits to the crop, especially in the post-harvest quality.

Soil correctors

Farmers are aware of how important is to have calcium in soils. Calcium deficiencies in plants can be observed in soils where there is an excess of nitrogen fertilizer, in substrates with alkaline pH, with episodes of water stress or with salt excess, among other factors. Within the Calcisei line, Miñosal is a corrector of saline and saline-sodic soils. It can be used both in soils having salinity problems and in areas where irrigation water quality makes it necessary.

Weed control in extensive agriculture

Control de malas hierbas en agricultura

Weed control in extensive agriculture results in an essential task to ensure a better crop yield. World cereal production in 2016 is 2.600 million tonnes. The latest FAO report forecasts that production will exceed 7.9 million tonnes (+ 0.3%) as predicted in February. Figures for the 2016/17 season exceed the record production obtained in 2014/2015 by more than one point, according to the International Grains Council.

In Spain, data from the Ministry of Agriculture, Fishing, Food and Environment indicate that an average of 6 million hectares of cereals are grown. This is the sector with greater territorial base and with a distribution throughout the whole territory. The Ministry considers that 42.8% of production is barley while 30.1% corresponds to soft wheat.

Because of its role in diet and food production, cereal farming is a key element on the board of the world economy. Due to its increasing importance, it is necessary to produce instruments for weed control in extensive agriculture, given its immediate impact on crop production and yield levels.

Seipasa a company specialized in natural solutions for agriculture with zero residues, has developed tools to guarantee weed control in extensive agriculture. Kynetic4 is a biostimulant produced to maximize the action of herbicides. It is based on the action of physiological intermediates and amino acids of plant origin. Being added to a herbicide program, Kynetic4 enhances absorption, taking action as a synergist and activator of herbicides, fungicides and foliar fertilizers.

Kynetic4’s ability to activate plant’s physiological processes not only results in increasing vegetative development but it also makes an improvement of the final production in extensive crops and cereals.

Reduction of stress caused by herbicides

Kynetic4 also reduces stress caused by herbicides. When herbicides are applied, crops are subjected to abiotic stress. The plant suffers from metabolic wear and requires an extraordinary energy supply to recover. Kynetic4 acts as a supplement to overcome episodes of higher stress.

An example of how Kynetic4 performs is observed in the trial conducted in Blairville (France). It was based on the efficacy of the product within a herbicide program. The results obtained revealed that the efficacy of Kynetic4 together with a herbicide program was 94.5%, compared to 90.4% of a herbicide program without any enhancer being applied. Other weed control programs were also measured, but lower efficacies were observed.

Yield increase with each of the treatments was also evaluated in this trial. As shown in figure 1, the best results were obtained when Kynetic4 was applied.

Figure 1.- Harvest evaluation with each of the treatments

Weed control in sugar beet farming

Applying Kynetic4 together with herbicides in sugar beet farming allows to obtain higher efficacies in weed control in extensive agriculture. Global production of sugar beet in the 2016/17 season is forecasted at 171 million tonnes, according to International Sugar Organization Brazil, India and the EU are the main producers. The importance of this crop requires the implementation of tools ensuring optimum performance.

Seipasa researched on the supply of Kynetic4 together with a herbicide program on sugar beet farming. The test, conducted in Belgium (Faimes), aimed to assess the benefits of a normal program of herbicide treatments together with Seipasa’s biostimulants. The purpose was to enhance the herbicide effect at the time the crop received biostimulation in its growth. The test was also applied to reduce the stress effect caused by chemical elements.

Four post-emergence applications of the usual herbicide program used in the region were carried out. The active ingredients of the 3 products were ethofumesate + fenmedifam + desmedipham; metamitron and clomazone.

Also, 3 products were included to evaluate compared effectiveness not only on weed control but also on the effects they could produce in the crop. Two additional evaluations were performed during the time elapsed between applications. An addition, a third evaluation was conducted 27 days after the last application of the 3 herbicide programs.

Kynetic4 shows similar performance compared to the reference product, but better than using animal amino acids. Efficacy of the combined use can be observed in figure 2. Kynetic4 in sugar beet cultivation improves the assimilation of treatments and stimulates the development of the crop, producing better and higher yields.

Fertilizers for tomato fattening

Fertilizers for tomato fattening

 

Best fertilizers for tomato fattening contain organic matter, potassium, fulvic and humic acids, and microelements.

Fertilizante para engorde de tomate

Achieving the highest harvest percentage with proper size and color is the goal of all farmers. This is very important to market the products. Hence the importance of assessing the application, at the appropriate time and following the needs of the plant, of fertilizers for tomato fattening and, where appropriate, specialized biostimulants.

When the fruit setting phase, the plant requires an extra contribution of potassium. Deficiency of this element can lead to an irregular maturation, preventing the full formation of the fruits in many cases.

Symptoms of potassium deficiency can be observed by small fruits with non-uniform coloration being produced, with yellow spots in areas that do not mature enough. It also leaves weak stalks, chlorosis and scorched edges on the leaves, poor resistance to pests and diseases, as well as increased susceptibility to frost and droughts.

Fertilizers for tomato fattening: potassium and much more

The relationship between potassium, fruit growth and maturation shows the importance of this macro-element in the quality of crop production. However, other factors must be taken into account to ensure the size, color and flavor of the tomato, without harming the characteristics of each variety.

Besides the need for a nutrient balance, with an adequate balance of other macro-elements and micro-elements such as Boron, Molybdenum, Calcium or Magnesium, environmental factors such as temperature must be taken into account. Between 24 and 28 degrees (Celsius) or solar lighting are  optimal for maturation. The characteristics of the substrate significantly influence the process, since this is the natural source of nutrients.

Fertilizers for tomato fattening: the importance of the substrate

The most demanding agricultural producers look beyond the specific application of mineral nutrition. They pefer to ensure not only the size of the fruits in that campaign, but also the richness of the soil that gives them greater guarantee of success for the next crops. What is key is to take advantage of all nutrients in the substrate while maintaining the balance of the substrate for short and long term benefit.

The most suitable tomato fattening fertilizers are those combinig organic matter with high content of potassium. Some very specialized references even contribute fulvic and humic acids, vitamins and microelements. This is the case of Terrasei Fruit, from SEIPASA.

The role of organic matter in tomato fattening fertilizers

Potassium fertilizers with high content of organic material such as Terrasei Fruit, significantly reduce potassium fixation inside the clays and its leaching loss in sandy soils. They increase both the concentration of potassium available and in solution in the soil. Its use favors the structure of the substrate, but also improves the absorption of potassium provided by conventional fertilizers.

Fulvic and humic acids contained in this reference are essential to regulate the physical and chemical properties of the soil and also to favor the development of beneficial microorganisms. This fertilizer has an immediate and slow release effect, helping to provide nutrients gradually.

Early maturation by applying fertilizers for tomato fattening

With the same conditions of temperature and illumination, it is possible to obtain a greater precocity and organoleptic quality in the process of maturation. This is because of fertilizers for tomato fattening. When it comes to Terrasei Fruit, results of the studies reveal considerable advance in maturation. As shown in figure 1 (corresponding to an experiment in which four applications of the product were carried out from fruit setting to harvesting) harvesting of the first fruits after maturation (days to first pick) was advanced 21 days.

Figure 1.- Days to first pick.

Fertilizers for tomato fattening

Fertilizers for tomato fattening: performance, size and color

Apart from favoring fruit maturation, field studies confirm that Terrasei Fruit ensures high performance (see figure 2) and a marked improvement in size (see figure 3), color (see figure 4), plant growth, length root and sugar content. Additional test data can be found here.

Advantages of liquid format in tomato fattening fertilizers

Organo-mineral fertilizers in liquid form such as Terrasei Fruit reach deeper soil profile compared to solid organic matter.

Biostimulants for tomato maturation and fattening

Biostimulants result in a specialized option so as to induce maturation and fattening of fruits and, depending on the characteristics of the crop and needs, could be combined with fertilization.

A reference specially addressed to this purpose, foliar and root application, is Sweetsei. This is a biostimulant of rapid assimilation. Besides advancing maturation, it increases fruit size while achieving uniformity and excellent color. Furthermore, it obtains greater elasticity, hydration and firmness due to an organic polymer incorporated in its composition. In the same way, it improves fruit behavior in post-harvest and favors the formation of sugars, improving the index of Brix degrees.

Seipasa produces natural treatments for agriculture with zero residues.

The passage of SEIPASA along Fruit Attraction 2016 has concluded exceeding expectations. With large numbers of visitors throughout the whole fair, which was held from 5 to 7 October at the IFEMA fairgrounds, SEIPASA says goodbye satisfied by the great success of their products and new developments.

The new natural insecticides of SEIPASA Nakar and Pirecris have aroused great interest among professionals in the sector, given its high capacity to control pests – demonstrated with diverse independent tests – with the added value, with regard to the conventional products, of obtaining ‘Zero Residues‘ crops.

 

This was evidenced by the success of call in the technical talk devoted to explaining the properties, field efficiencies and integration strategies IPM (Integrated Pest Management) of new insecticides solutions Nakar and Pirecris by SEIPASA technical director, Javier Nácher.

During the event many attendees were interested in the SEIPASA latest developments.

The future of the agricultural sector was also present at the SEIPASA’s stand represented by a group of students from the Polytechnic University of Madrid. The director of R&D+i department, Francisco Espinosa, responded to their concerns and showed them the great potential that natural treatments  can reach, most of them of botanical origin, after a thorough research and development to achieve the ideal formulation.

SEIPASA’s stand was also the scene of a meeting of all partners making up the consortium responsible for carrying out the ambitious European project Life+ Zero Residues (LIFE12 ENV/ES/000902: LIFE Zero Residues: towards a sustainable production and supply chain for stone fruit). The conclusions of this initiative, aimed at improving the quality and sustainability of production, conservation and marketing of stone fruit with the guarantee to be free of residues, speak of success.

Biostimulant Kynetic4

Biostimulant for flowering and fruit set: Kynetic4® acts in this way

Kynetic4® biostimulant represents a significant energy boost that gets better bloom, an optimal pollination and fertilization, and an excellent fruit set. It also acts as a protective barrier against possible plant stress conditions

Watch in this video the spectacular results of  the application of  this latest generation biostimulant

The action of the SEIPASA’s specialized biostimulant Kynetic4® on vegetable and fruit evidence a significant increase in the harvest. This cause and effect relationship has been demonstrated in research by agronomists. In the almond crops tested, productivity increases between 8% and 15%, reaching values even higher in vegetables. In fact, the application of Kynetic4® in zucchini reduces the use of hormone in about 60% with no significant differences between the different tested treatments.

These are just some of the results of the various tests carried out with this biostimulant, which have reported excellent results, a fact that farmers who have used it are already showing their crops.

But what is what brings Kynetic4® to get these quotas profitability? Based on the action of a studied combination of physiological intermediaries and vegetable amino acids, this biostimulant provides crops short chain substances rapidly assimilated by the plant, and peptides of long chain that improve adherence and effect of the product.

Flowering, fertilization  and flower set

Since its application involves an energy stimulation at times of peak demand, its employment is key in important stages such as flowering, fertilization and fruit set.

Kynetic4® manages to increase its vegetative growth and improve final output, not only in terms of quantitative parameters but also qualitative. Color, smoothness, size and taste are favored by the application of this biestimulant created thanks to recent advances in natural technology.

Effective pollination

With the application of a this formulated, the crop can achieve an effective pollination less determined by the natural factors that influence it, such as air temperatura (heat accelerates and cold retards the growth of the pollen tube, although it should be noted that high temperatures also accelerate the degeneration of stigma and decrease the longevity of the egg), rain (rain can wash the stigma and prevent the continuation of the process of fertilization), the amount of pollen captured or nutritional status of the plant.

In spite of the fact that the latter aspect requires appropriate management of fertilization since the beginning of cycle to avoid deficiencies during fertilization, the use of Kynetic4® manages to take advantage to the most of the nutrients in this stage.

Powerful action against crop stress

Also, Kynetic4® provides greater adaptability of the plant to stress conditions: drought, frost, transplants, extreme temperatures, diseases, pests…

This biostimulant keeps crops in excellent health vegetable to successfully face these situations and, once overcome the circumstances of stress, stimulates the recovery of the plant, since it promotes the restoration of plant tissues.

Furthermore, as an added value, it has high efficiency as a natural chelator, unblocking soils and facilitating absorption and assimilation of other compounds.

Promotes the effect of foliar fertilizers and herbicides

In this regard, polypeptides compounds in Kynetic4® formulation reduce surface tension and facilitate its use as a synergist in applying foliar fertilizers, facilitating their absorption, and herbicides, promoting their effect.

Specially selected amino acids in this biostimulant play its action on interest routes improving nutrient uptake and inducing protein and phytohormone synthesis .

This way, glutamic acid stimulates the growth of root, leaf and floral meristems, favors the opening of the stomata and plays an important role in plant nitrogen as a nature reserve.

Glycine, glutamic with, is essential in the formation of plant tissue and chlorophyll synthesis, and promotes the transport of micronutrients by the plant. Other amino acids as lysine and proline are essential in the flowering stage since, the first one increase pollen germination, and the second one improves fertility and regulates water balance.

But, in addition, Kynetic4® is enriched by organic matter and nitrogen. Nitrogen is vital to increase the longevity of the eggs.

Meanwhile, fulvic acids influence the health of the rhizosphere through its ability to multiply beneficial microorganisms, which are of great importance to keep out pathogens and pests.
