Bioiberica - Plant Health consolidates its commitment to the almond tree
- The company actively participates in three national and international forums with presentations focused on this crop.
- The global increase in temperatures, as a consequence of the climatic emergency, complicates the crop yield more every day.
The lack of rain and high temperatures complicate this year's almond production in the Californian market, with productions 10% lower compared to the previous year. This condition turn into drops in the average yield of fruits per tree (-18%), and in kernel weight (-3%). A situation that marks the prices in almond production worldwide and that seems to be repeated next year.
Bioiberica – Plant Health, always at the forefront in the search for solutions to overcome plant stress, has focused on almond cultivation, to which the business unit has spent several campaigns dedicating research efforts.
Mauro Bernal, Crop Manager of Bioibérica, and a specialist in the cultivation of nuts, has presented the paper "Improvement of almond production through the use of biostimulants", in three national and international forums on a study in collaboration with the CEBAS-CSIC in which it is shown how the innovative biostimulant Equilibrium® is a good tool to increase the average weight of almonds in varieties characterized by low kernel weight (such as var. Penta) .
Mauro Bernal, Crop Manager of Bioiberica, in the different forums in which the Equilibrium® novelties have been presented.
The use of Equilibrium® biostimulant can be an effective and profitable strategy to increase the kernel yield of nuts such as almond, walnut, hazel or pistachio, especially in situations of crop stress caused by unfavorable weather.
