Biostimulants for the zucchini setting. Flowers

The process of fruit setting in zucchini cultivation is especially complicated compared to other horticultural crops because the opening and development of male and female flowers do not coincide. Male flowers usually appear earlier.

As this is a crucial phase to achieve an abundant and quality harvest, farmers often resort to hormonal treatments to induce the development of fruits.

However, both the social demand and the evolution in the regulation of products are increasingly directed at trying to dispense with any chemical in plant foods, thus prioritizing the use of natural processes and substances. The market requires minimizing the use of hormones and synthetic products.

In this context, the use of specialized biostimulants for the zucchini setting and even their combination with hormonal treatments in low proportions has been shown an efficient alternative to obtain high productivity and, most importantly, quality. KYNETIC4 is one of the biostimulants that achieve high levels of fruit setting with top quality crops.

Biostimulants for the zucchini setting that avoid fruit malformation

A bad process of zucchini setting can produce malformations in the fruits such as the so-called sucking, crooked or low-developed fruits.

Crooked fruits: 

Zucchinis that bend by the centre due to a bad setting of the fruit

Low-developed fruits:

Fruits that stop their development in an early stage and that finally abort. Possible causes are depletion of the plant, lack of vegetative vigor or phytosanitary treatments.

Sucked fruits: 

Fruits that do not develop evenly and are usually sucked by the apical limb. Precisely this defect has been traditionally attributed to hormonal treatment; However, there is a conjunction of factors that can provoke it, since it usually occurs in the moments of plant stress (scarcity or excess humidity, dry winds, abrupt climatological changes or phytosanitary treatments). When pollination is natural, the fruit is better able to withstand stress, and this problem does not occur.

Products for the zucchini setting that give the plant the energy boost it needs to overcome situations of plant stress are fundamental to avoid any type of malformations of the fruits.

Influence on flowering and fertility of biostimulants for the zucchini setting

Since the development of the male and female flowers of the zucchini crop do not match, it is very important to achieve sufficient quantities of flowers and, more importantly, with abundant pollen and high fertility. If a natural pollination is carried out, this allows the pollinating insects to carry out their work more successfully.

Specialized biostimulants such as KYNETIC4 are specially designed to increase flowering, pollen fertility and fruit setting levels. In addition, it is an essential solution to deal with all types of plant stress conditions.

Biostimulants for zucchini setting: Minimizing the use of hormones

The constant demand for increased yields and quality of crops and the need to reduce the use of hormones led SEIPASA to be involved in studies aimed at the organic activation of plants in the cultivation of zucchini decreasing the use of hormonal products. The KYNETIC4 biostimulant was used for this purpose.

LINK TO THE TRIAL “Effect of KYNETIC4 on zucchini quality, fruit set and yield”: http://en.seipasa.com/trials/kynetic4-zucchini/

For this trial, four different treatments were proposed: T1, corresponding to the usual application of two hormones (ANA + ANA amide); T2, with the application in irrigation of KYNETIC4; T3, with the foliar application of KYNETIC4; and, finally, T4, which consists of combined applications of the hormone and KYNETIC4, reducing the amount of hormone used in T1 by almost 60%.

According to the results of the study, it is possible to reduce the use of hormonal products (T4) up to 60%, increasing the average weight of the marketable fruit with respect to the single use of hormones. (Graphic 1)

Organic fertilizers for olive trees

Organic fertilizers for olive trees. Advantages versus manure and conventional fertilizers

Organic fertilizers for olive trees

The organic fertilizers for olive trees are an essential element for the soil health of these crops. The advantages of an organic bottom fertilizer, used in the first cycles, versus manure or conventional fertilizers, are not only observed in the most immediate campaign, but also in the plant health and the quality of the long-term production.

Although nutrients are naturally found in the substrate, they are not replenished fast enough to maintain soil fertility. Hence, it is necessary to make additional contributions. But which fertilizer to use?

Before choosing one or the other to include in the subscriber plan it is advisable to carry out a soil and leaf analysis to know the exact needs of each crop. Some parameters such as soil characteristics and composition, type of plant, age, agricultural practices, water status or planting density should be taken into account.

Nowadays, one of the most advanced organic formulations for the basal dressing is Organitro, from SEIPASA, rich in nitrogen and 100% organic.

Organic fertilizers for olive trees vs. dung

– The dung contains high humidity and is not stable. Thus, in contrast to the dung variability, the complete organic fertilizers guarantee the fertilizer units (N, F, K).

– Dung can contain seeds of weeds or pathogens that can be transferred to the crop.

– If some dungs rich in macronutrients such as nitrogen are not mixed with other poorer or plant remains, they tend to be imbalanced despite composting.

– In organic farming, many dungs are not allowed: Those from intensive farms may be contaminated with residues of pesticides, antibiotics or heavy metals.

Organic fertilizers for olive trees vs. conventional fertilizers

– Conventional mineral fertilizer gives the plant nutrients available immediately, but it is easier to apply in excess or deficiency. It does not amend the soil, simply feeds the vegetable.

– The organic fertilizer is less aggressive to the soil. Conventional can salinize the substrate. It can increase toxic salts if applied in large quantities.

– With the use of chemical fertilizers there is a risk of contamination of the underground and surrounding water.

– The application of synthetic fertilizers can also lead to degradation of soil life by eliminating microorganisms useful for plant nutrition.

– Applying organic fertilizers allows the action of the soil microorganisms to degrade the fertilizer to form water soluble compounds, which the plant takes advantage of.

– Organic fertilization also favors the proliferation of bacteria and fungi that benefit the soil and help the best use of nutrients by the plant.

– In short, they improve the structure of the substrate, allow carbon fixation and favor the ability of the crop to retain nutrients and water.

Organic fertilizers of reference for olive trees

Organic fertilizers for olive treesFor the basal dressing, one of the best options is the complete fertilizer with Organitro.

The high organic matter content of this fertilizer substantially improves the physical, chemical and biological properties of the soil.

It is easy to handle in the application thanks to the pelletizing. It is distributed with great uniformity in the soil, allowing an immediate availability when disintegrating in only five minutes in the presence of water and dissolving completely in no more than four hours.  It achieves a maximum valuation of the supplied fertilizer units.

It has a dual nutritional effect: the combination of fast-release nutrients and elements that ensure fertility in the medium term after undergoing mineralization processes. It allows the formation of organo-metallic complexes. Thus, it stabilizes micronutrients of the soil that would otherwise not be usable.

Organitro increases the cation exchange capacity and acts as a buffering agent by reducing the tendency to a sudden change in soil pH when acid or alkaline reaction substances are applied.

To have an oxygenated soil, with good structure and balanced in its nutrients is the ideal thing so that the farmer can obtain good yields, and references like this are basic.

Organic solid and liquid fertilizers

In addition to Organitro, belonging to the Seivital line (solid organic), SEIPASA offers another type of 100% organic fertilizers, guaranteed with the corresponding ecological certificate, and ideal for integrated production.

The liquid organic fertilizers of the line Multisei are also placed as regenerative models of soils for their ability to balance the nutrient substrate, improving its structure, its composition and microbial activity.

They promote the formation of aggregates in the soil that improve the friability of the land facilitating agricultural work and avoiding flooding and root suffocation.

They incorporate in their formulation raw materials of vegetal origin with a high degree of refinement that avoid problems of precipitates and seals in systems of drip irrigation.

The Terrasei line is the answer of SEIPASA to the nutritional needs of crops in different phenological states, since it combines mineral nutrition and the energy and soil structure of organic fertilization.

Organic fertilizers company

SEIPASA is a leader company in R+D+i research, both in phytosanitary products and in organic fertilization, making organic fertilizers available to farmers to improve the yield of olive and other crops.

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.
