Conclusions

Description

The farmer tells us that he has a sandy farm with nematode problems. This raises the interest of Professor Becky Westerdahl who raises the possibility of carrying out a joint trial with our product for nematodes after the good results obtained in her carrot trial.

Trial design

As a protocol, it is recommended to make alternate applications of Lombrico Nemat-x at 0.5 gal / acre and Lombrico Mol 75 at 0.6 gal / acre, every fifteen days alternating product applications. (odd weeks Nemat-x, even weeks Mol75). As controls, Movento treatment is used at its normally recommended dose and frequency and an alternation between Nemat-x and Movento

Conclusion

In the lines treated with the Lombrico Nemat-x + Lombrico Mol75 protocol, a better color shift is observed. The grape cluster is much more homogeneous and has no development problems. Although measurements are not made periodically, the farmer comments that the taste and level of sugars in the area treated with Alfredo Iñesta products is higher than in the rest of the areas. From the conclusions of the trial, it can be affirmed that it really is important is not the amount of nematodes in the soil, but the ability of these to damage the plant. Thanks to the application of the Lombrico Nemat-x + Lombrico Mol75 protocol, these nematodes are paralyzed, which allows the plant to develop its root system and continue to nourish itself, resulting in a more vigorous crop and a better developed fruit in terms of quality. .
