Influence of a new biostimulant on flowering, fructificationd and yield in coffee

May 2021
Bioestimulantes | Scientific articles

One of the limitations that have been presented in the cultivation of coffee in the Central American region have been climatic variables, in which high temperatures, together with ultraviolet light levels, as well as rainfall and its intensity, have caused serious problems for the development of the crop. There are physiological imbalances that cause losses in stimulation and flower setting, reaching losses of more than 60% depending on the variety. The objective of this work was to evaluate...

Comparison of attractivs and traps for the capture of fruit flu in orange (Citrus sinensis L. osbeck)

May 2021
Scientific articles | Cera-Trap®

Despite management programs and control systems established to date in citrus for fruit flies, it remains a major phytosanitary problem for orange crop in Mexico, mainly due to lack of viable alternatives and economic conditions for small farmers. In this experiment, a higher incidence of Anastrepha ludens was detected, followed by A. obliqua and in less quantity A. striata. The trap-attractant binomial with best capture effectiveness was Ceratrap-PET, followed by Ceratrap-Multilure. The fem...

Electrophysiological Responses of the Mediterranean Fruit Fly, Ceratitis capitata, to the Cera Trap® Lure: Exploring Released Antennally-Active Compounds

March 2021
Scientific articles | Cera-Trap®

The Mediterranean fruit fly (medfly), Ceratitis capitata, is a worldwide pest of agriculture able to use olfactory cues to locate habitat, food sources, mates and oviposition sites. The sensitivity of medfly olfaction has been exploited to develop olfactorybased attractants that are currently important tools for detection, control and eradication of its populations. Among these is Cera Trap® (BIOIBERICA, S.A.U.), a cost-effective bait. Here we ...

Mass trapping is a viable alternative to insecticides for management of Anastrepha fraterculus (Diptera: Tephritidae) in apple orchards 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 ...

Field efficacy of commercial food attractants for Ceratitis capitata (Diptera: Tephritidae) mass trapping and their impacts on non-target organisms in peach orchards

February 2020
Scientific articles | Cera-Trap®

The use of mass trapping in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) schemes targeting Ceratitis capitata Wiedmann (Diptera: Tephritidae) has proved to be efficient. However, there has been much disagreement regarding the potential undesirable impacts of such attractant on non-target organisms. In this study, two years field trials were conducted in two peach orchards to assess the efficacy of two synthetic food-based baits from different origins (one from vegetal origin and Continue Reading
