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.

Organic fertilizers to improve soil in intensive crops

Organic fertilizers Multisei and Terrasei are the greatest impulse for horticultural soil fatigued by the intense activity and poor quality of the water

Organic fertilizers Terrasei y Multisei

Calcareous soils, saline waters and two or three crops per year on the same land. These conditions that combine the horticultural crops of the southeast of Spain carry the risk of soil fatigue, which implies loss of vigor and productive yield of the plants.

The degradation of the structure and physical properties of the substrate accelerates the incidence of chemical and biological factors, such as nutrient deficiency due to exhaustion or blockage, contamination by phytotoxic ions or by pathogenic organisms, competition between microorganisms and cultivated plants, or loss of the biological balance of the soil by the use of disinfectants.

Being aware of this problem, producers are looking for solutions that maintain productivity and quality in their fields, and find great support in specialized organic fertilizers for this purpose such as Multisei and Terrasei.

Organic fertilizers to regenerate soils and increase fertility

Multisei line products of SEIPASA are specially designed to regenerate punished soils due to their high content of organic matter of vegetal origin and of fulvic acids, optimal C/N ratio and incorporation of molasses. “Molasses are the main source of energy of the microorganisms involved in the fermentation of organic fertilizer. So they favor the microbiological activity of the soil, and contain micronutrients, too”, underline the technicians of the area”.

All this leads to an improvement of the structure and composition of the soil, increasing the porosity and, therefore, the capacity of air and water retention, as well as the availability of elements.

The Technical personnel especially emphasize the high solubility of this liquid organic fertilizer, with a high degree of refinement of its raw materials, which avoids problems of obturation in the drip irrigation systems.

Stimulation and root protection

Multisei also enhances the action of biostimulants and root protectors such as Seiland, a product of great capacity in the biological activation of the rhizosphere that becomes essential in the planting phase: “Promoting beneficial microorganisms of the soil provides a protective barrier and a reinforcement of the root system against pathogen attacks and root diseases”.

With the decrease in temperatures, horticulture especially need this boost to activate the plant. “Seiland encourages the crops to emit new roots and acts as biofertilizer because of its ability to fix nitrogen or solubilize phosphorus and because it provides beneficial substances and enzymes”, explain the technicians of SEIPASA.

Nutrition Bioactivators

In addition, the action of Terrasei as a bioactivator of nutrition is essential. As the technical personnel explain, although the references of the Terrasei line (liquid organomineral fertilizers) contain NPK, the true value of their complex formulation lies in the conjugation of these elements with other molecules that complement nutrition and facilitate nutritional absorption, provided that they are capable of unblocking the substratum and liberating the nutrients.

Terrasei products improve the efficiency of chemical fertilizers by increasing the cation exchange capacity and, consequently, the storage of nutrients in the soil. This represents a saving in the long run for the farmer since it allows to reduce the amount of pure synthetic fertilizers to apply.

“They incorporate, in addition to organic matter, fulvic acids and amino acids, which translates into a jolt of energy that allows the vegetable to dedicate metabolic resources to physiological functions”. The possibility of foliar use, besides irrigation, allows a rapid assimilation of nutrients.

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.
