CDTI PROJECT IDI-20200831

NATURAL FORMULATIONS FOR PEST CONTROL OF NEW PSEUDOCOCCID SPECIES

Budget: EUR 457.130,00

CDTI financial assistance (partially refundable): EUR 388 560.50

This project has been executed during the years 2020 and 2021 with the main objective of (1) carrying out an exhaustive investigation of the biological cycle of Delottococcus aberiae and Pseudococcidus longispinus, two species of pseudococcids from Sub-Saharan Africa and South America, respectively, which have recently been introduced into our country and that are causing significant damage to citrus and persimmon crops, and (2) design and develop, for their control, new phytosanitary formulations of a biological nature, based on synergistic mixtures based on active ingredients of different essential oils prepared specifically for this purpose. Proposed as a logical combination of field work (in experimental plots) and in the laboratory for the development and testing of properties of formulations, the project has been a success.

This project has been audited by the CDTI in 2022.

Floral induction and differentiation in nut crops

In nut crops, as with fruit trees, the buds that give rise to flowers and shoots are formed in the year before the period in which they develop, distinguishing several processes, initiation of induction and floral initiation and, subsequently, floral differentiation. Floral initiation can be considered the beginning of the induction process and comprises the […]

BROTOMAX® induces defence mechanisms

BROTOMAX® boosts one of the fundamental cycles of plants, that of shikimic acid, which is responsible for the synthesis of important groups of metabolites among which are polyphenols, which are very important for the life of plants and their defence mechanisms. BROTOMAX® does not directly introduce polyphenols to the plant, but influences their biochemical modulation, […]
