Utilización de Fevillea cordifolia L., como planta trampa para el control de Anastrepha grandis (Macquart, 1846) en Panamá.

September 2016
Posters | Cera-Trap®
Antecedentes: Anastrepha grandis es una plaga restrictiva al comercio internacional de frutas de la familia Cucurbitácea. Adultos de esta especie fueron detectados en Panamá en 2009, específicamente en la provincia de Darién, a través del Sistema de Vigilancia Fitosanitaria (SVF) del Ministerio de Desarrollo Agropecuario (MIDA). Fue necesario aplicar medidas fitosanitarias para la contención de la plaga, a fin de cumplir con las exigencias del mercado internacional. En 2012 y después d...

Enhancing foliar iron uptake with amino acids complexes

June 2016
Posters | AminoQuelant®
Foliar fertilization is an alternative tool in the treatment of iron chlorosis and other micronutrient deficiencies, especially in conditions where the correction through the soil is limited: immobilization of nutrients in the soil (high pH, organic matter or clay), high nutrient lixiviation or crops with no irrigation. Among iron fertilizers, synthetic chelates applied by foliar spray do not necessarily represent and advantage for Fe fertilization. They are costly for farmers, environmentally ...

Identification of Ceratitis capitata electrophysiological and field responses to Cera Trap®

April 2016
Posters | Cera-Trap®

Fruit flies such as Ceratitis capitata and Bactrocera invadens are notorious worldwide for their destructive impact on agriculture and particularly difficult to control effectively. Pesticide treatment have historically been used against theses pests, but nowadays it is necessary to develop alternative strategies due to an increase in insecticide resistance, but also to toxicological and environmental consequences. Mass trapping techniques are currently one of the most common control methods...

CERA TRAP as alternative to standard fruit fly control in fruit crops of South Africa

April 2016
Posters | Cera-Trap®

Three endemic tephritid fruit fly species, Mediterranean fruit fly (Medfly) (Cerratitis capitata), Natal fly (Ceratitis rosa), Marula fly (Ceratitis cosyra) and a fourth species of Asian origin, the Oriental fruit fly (Bactrocera dorsalis), are considered pests of significant economic and quarantine importance in South Africa (Manrakhan et al. 2011). Fruit flies are notoriously difficult to control due to their polyphagous nature and high number of generations per year (Llorens et al. 2008)....

Effect of Silicon Fertilization on Growth, Yield, and Disease Development in Wheat Plant

December 2015
Posters | Armurox®

Silicon (Si) is known to enhance crop’s ability to withstand biotic and abiotic stress therefore can help crop maintain productivity even in adverse environmental conditions. In Louisiana, wheat production is commonly challenged by high disease pressure. A field study was conducted at two locations in Louisiana in 2014 to evaluate the effect of Si fertilization on wheat productivity using yield, nutrient uptake, grain protein content, and disease severity as metrics. Rust infection rate ta...
