Abiotic stressors are stressors that are not solely created by “living” aspects of the soil. Periods of humidity, cold, drought or heat as well as high salt or PH values can also cause stress.
An often underestimated form of abiotic stress comes from herbicides and fungicides that are regularly applied to crops. . A dilemma for the farmer appears, either to see growth and yields decrease due to a disease or to spray with a phytosanitary product which will in turn increase this stress.
Let's start by saying that both situations are problematic for the producer. However, there are options to reduce the impact of chemistry on crop growth.
We can consider combining plant free amino acids with chemistry, by combining them we add plant-specific information chains that inform that the crop does not need additional energy to convert it into acids complex amino acids, proteins and complex sugars or hormones. This benefits plant growth and crop resistance.
Many crops are currently under pressure due to dry wind and persistent heat. No matter how large the growing crop, moisture evaporates and crops cannot absorb the water and minerals they need for growth due to limited root area. In places where there is more plant mass, evaporation is greater and therefore water requirements will be accordingly.
In bed crops, such as spinach and similar short crops, 10 l/Ha of F-Ferti 7-2-3 and 3 l/Ha of SolFulvi can now be used weekly. In doing so, you feed the crop and the soil via the free plant amino acids contained in F-Ferti, SolFulvi providing a chelating effect and therefore better absorption of the elements contained in F-Ferti.
In potato, sugar beet and onion crops, we can apply 3-5 l/Ha of F-Ferti 7-2-3 and 1-2 l/Ha of SolFulvi per week, depending on the vegetation development.
The harvests for 2023 are underway, due to a complicated climate in recent months, changes and adaptations remain difficult to manage. The trees are now in the growth stage of existing fruit, but also towards the formation of buds for the following year. Any form of stress (energy deficit) will manifest itself in weaker bud formation. Therefore, it is imperative in this phase to do everything possible to avoid an imbalance or even a mineral deficiency.
With a weekly application of 3-5 /=Ha of F-Ferti 7-2-3 and 1-2 l/Ha of SolFulvi, a reduction in stress can be achieved and the crop can continue to grow using the free amino acids of which F-Ferti 7-2-3 is richly composed, with fermented elements. The crop will also become more resistant to fungal attacks or bacterial diseases.
In arboriculture, the formation and production of flower buds has to struggle at the beginning of the season, it is necessary to ensure the greatest possible growth before the crops prepare for the autumn period. Here too, a weekly application of 3-5 l/Ha F-Ferti 7-2-3 and 1-2 /Hal SolFulvi is recommended to prevent stress. With this protocol, the crop is also more resistant to fungi such as mildew, powdery mildew and other cryptogamic diseases.
