Treatments for olive trees after winter

Tratamientos-para-el-olivo

Treatments for olive trees after winter are widely recognized to prevent diseases and to obtain a homogenous harvest each season, thus forgetting the feared alternation of production. Preparatory treatments are applied at an early stage and aim to adapt the olive tree to achieve a good flowering.

The months of January and February are suitable to apply pruning work at the olive tree, allowing to set a proper structure within the production of the following campaign.

Although depending on climate and varieties, towards the end of March the flower buds have already begun to appear. In this second phase, the buds gradually thicken until the generation of the floral bud begins to be observed. Henceforth, the plant will continue its development with the formation of the cluster.

At this point, treatments for olive trees after winter recommend the use of products such as Kynetic4. Its use allows to enhance the flowering of the crop, an essential step to assure the harvest of the following year. Kynetic4 produces an energetic stimulation at times of increased crop demand. Its application contributes to obtain a better flowering and the following setting.

Treatments for olive trees: fungal diseases

At this stage of the harvest, it is utterly necessary to pay attention to the possible occurrence of fungal diseases such as repilo. Treatments for olive trees after winter also include the application of preventive products based on copper.

The copper placed on the leaf creates a protective barrier that precludes the spore from germinating when it appears. The use of Glucosei favors the creation of this protective barrier and stimulates the generation of self-defenses. Due to its formulation, Glucosei minimizes the possible negative effects caused by the copper on the soil.

March results a time of the year when the latest winter rains and the earliest of the spring may become commonplace. The use of Glucosei also helps to ensure that crops are protected when spring budding occurs.

Micronutrient correctors

Specialists also recommend the application of a micronutrient corrector as a treatment for olive tres after winter. The plant assimilates them during the budding, overcoming any shortage of micronutrients that may occur and reinforcing the subsequent phase of flowering. Based on a combination of zinc, manganese, iron, boron and molybdenum, Seipafol Mix has been specifically designed to beat any shortage of micronutrients that may occur during the different stages of plant growth.

Not only does the use of natural solutions bring greater energy to the vegetable, but It also contributes to maintaining the balance of the agricultural ecosystem, respecting sustainability and revitalizing the environment. Thus, besides contributing to the development of the crop, natural treatments help to guarantee the conditions in which both olive trees and fields are left in proper conditions for future campaigns.

Quality and quantity, the goals to reach growing olive groves

Profitability, both in the short and long term, is determined by the balance given by natural products specialized in vegetative growth and pest control

Quantity and quality in the olive production are not conflicting parameters. Advances in natural technology for agriculture by companies with a major background in the R&D field just like SEIPASA have led to specialized products available to the farmer that imply a boost to the health and vigor of plants – either by activating their metabolism or by protecting them from pests and diseases that curb and hurt them- and result both in the harvest’s weight and final quality.

They are completely natural inputs that not only offer more energy to the plant, but also maintain the natural balance of the agricultural ecosystem, regenerating and revitalizing the environment. Thus, present profitability is improved while tuning the crop while, and perhaps this is more important, future profitability is also improved thanks to the favorable conditions in which the olive trees and land is left.

What are these natural tools?

Starting with the rhizosphere, olive trees need a base that promotes the activity of beneficial soil microorganisms, boosting a barrier against pathogens at the same time it stimulates root development. These benefits can be obtained with reference products such as Seiland, a root protector that strengthens the plant’s defense system and promotes the generation of lateral roots and root hairs, and nutrient assimilation.

Without neglecting the importance of balanced irrigation and fertilization, there are crucial stages in the olive tree production cycle that require special care if qualitative and quantitative targets want to be achieved. Especially on sprouting, flowering and fruit setting. They are moments of high energy demand; times when the action of Kynetic4 becomes pillar to ensure success.

Its bio-stimulating effect not only favors a good development of all these processes, which will brand the year’s harvest and part of the next’s, but also prepares olive trees to cope with immunity with abiotic stress such as frost. It should be kept in mind that olive tree buds, unlike almost all woody plants, are not protected by scales and hence are more sensitive to cold.

Nutrition and flowering in olive groves

Olive inflorescence occurs over last year’s buds, and rarely on the new ones. It depends on what the tree has experienced over the previous year in terms of water supply in the soil, nutrients or temperature, but this can also be boosted by the enhancing effects of Kynetic4..

This next-generation bio-stimulant also has an important role in the fruit setting process, since it increases pollen germination and thus optimizes the setting.

Fighting pests and diseases naturally

Achieving optimal production parameters also means knowing how to fight pests and diseases while maintaining crop health intact. In this sense, it is vital to follow guidelines of integrated pest control, maximizing natural resources for biodiversity, the environment and your own future profitability.

That is why is necessary to maintain and enhance the pests’ natural enemies jointly with other physical and cultural methods and, especially, with the use of natural treatments compatible with biological control. SEIPASA constant research in this area has led to obtain clever formulations that are highly effective against insect pests and other harmful agents.

That’s the case with Pirecris, which features a quick action on different types of populations, including olive fly, olive moth (prays) and glifodes. These are three of the pests that most damage are inflicting over olive groves in Jaén, that require effective fighting tools, capable of avoiding resistance and sensitivity in olive trees.

Pirecris’ natural effectiveness not only answers to the pyrethrum extract’s active ingredient: its activity is enhanced by the botanical-based, green co-formulants, unlike many pyrethrin-based based references that include synthetic compounds. This is a unique, perfectly balanced combination which not only protects olive trees from pest attacks, but also guarantees the protection of this crop.

Producers can also use natural formulations alternative to copper such as Glucosei, which implies a great support to prevent fungi proliferation.

In short, optimal management of olive crops derives from the application of biological, cultural and biotechnical measures, backed with specialized treatments that are as effective as respectful of the agricultural system that receives and animates them. It is a path open to long-term profitability.
