SOIL is an improver for agricultural soils subjected to high productive stress.
As an allelopathic biostimulant, it is indicated for application to the soil to achieve a perfect physical, chemical and biological balance in accordance with the ideal requirements for the best development and maximum productive capacity of the implanted crop.
This product is composed of seaweed extract, a variety Ascophyllum nodosum. Its main functions are to improve the soil and recover the microbiome in soils subjected to high productive pressure thanks to its prebiotic capacity.
It is characterized by its prebiotic capacity, which reestablishes the microbiological balance in disease-conducive soils. It also has the capacity to disinfect soils, in addition to favoring crop implantation by improving the physicochemical properties of the substrate.
As a final result, the implanted crop shows greater vigor in its development and less susceptibility to pathogens that cause wilt and root rot.
In order to verify the effectiveness of SOIL, we have carried out numerous trials, the following two of which were carried out on tomato and zucchini crops.
The tomato trial took place in Puebla (Mexico). The strategy carried out is the application of SOIL by drip irrigation at different doses before transplanting. As a final result, 15 days before transplanting, up to 92% control of Rhizoctonia was observed, depending on the dose applied (see graph).
On the other hand, a trial was carried out on zucchini, located in a greenhouse in Ruescas (Almería). The strategy was to apply SOIL to the soil before zucchini planting at 15 L/ha. with soil analyses contrasted by public and private laboratories. As a final result we obtained a reduction of the Fusarium spp. population from 4700 colony forming units to 140, observing a 97% control of Fusarium.
It is important to highlight that SOIL is indicated for all types of crops before planting in soils with high agronomic wear. Its recommended doses are 15-20 L/ha.
Steps to follow for its application:
- Preparation of the soil by superficial tillage to obtain a well-mulched soil (avoid agglomerations).
- Irrigate at full field capacity by localized irrigation. Whenever possible, seal the soil with plastic.
- Apply the product by localized irrigation.
- Irrigate again with water to favor incorporation and diffusion in the soil.
- Allow the product to act before planting.
