We evaluated a new integrated pest-management system for Anastrepha fraterculus (Wiedemann, 1830), the mainWe evaluated a new integrated pest-management system for Anastrepha fraterculus (Wiedemann, 1830), the maininsect pest of apple crops in Brazil. Our strategy combined mass trapping and application of toxic baits in cropsystems without (Area 1) and with (Area 3) anti-hail netting. The treatments were compared with the conventionalmanagement (applications of toxic baits ...

The following article shows the results of an exhaustive comparative study of both analytical characterization and agronomic efficacy of four biostimulant products based on amino acids from different sources of raw material (animal and plant origin) and methods of obtaining (chemical hydrolysis or enzymatic). Regarding the analytical characterization, the results show a greater degree of hydrolysis (greater amount of free amino acids) and a more complete and balanced amino acid profile of th...

Mass trapping and bait station techniques as alternative methods for IPM of "Ceratitis capitata" Wiedmann (Diptera: Tephritidae) in citrus orchards

Malathion bait sprays to control medfly, Ceratitis capitata  (Diptera: Tephritidae), in Tunisian citrus orchards is expected to be phased out in the near future due to low residue tolerance inthe fruits by consumers. Attract and kill strategy that encompasses mass trapping and bait station techniques has become  awidespread method for controlling medfly. Effectiveness of two bait station methods (AAL&K® and Ceranock®) and two attractants for mass trapping (Ce...

Photosynthetic performance of young maize (Zea mays L.) plants exposed to chilling stress can be improved by the application of protein hydrolysates

Biostimulants offer a novel approach for the regulation of crucial physiological processes in plants. Recently, it has been observed that the application of biostimulants on both seeds and plants may ameliorate to some extent the negative effects of abiotic stresses such as drought, heat, salinity, and others. In the climate conditions of Bulgaria, the early developmental stages of warm climate crops, like maize, often occur under suboptimal temperatures. Although the mitigation of abiotic s...

Demonstrative trial of the properties of the Inicium® peptide biostimulant

April 2019
Bioestimulantes | Scientific articles | Inicium®

In order to characterize the effect of the INICIUM® product, the aerial and underground development of pepper plants treated and untreated with the root application biostimulant was monitored. The results showed an incentive effect of growth in the post-transplant phase in plants treated with INICIUM®, which is visualized in an early growth of the root system. This effect seems to be associated with the production of thinner and longer roots that would provide a greater surface area of wat...
