Together with Cooperativa Virgen de Las Nieves, in Los Palacios and Villafranca, Seville (Spain), we have recently developed a test on zucchini in a horticultural greenhouse. Under a comprehensive management strategy with Econatur products, highlighting the disinfection of soil with SOIL to control soil diseases such as Fusarium, Nematodes, Pythium, etc.

Objective: To condition a soil subjected to a high degree of agronomic wear, recovering the productive potential of the plantation. Control the population of soil pathogens.

Test design

The test was carried out in a 1500 m2 greenhouse, planted on September 16 with Lucía variety zucchini, with previous problems of Fusarium spp. and nematodes.

Applications of SOIL were made, in pre-plantation and NEMICIN and FUSARUM during the crop cycle to maintain control of these pathogens.

Regular soil samples were taken to quantify the population of Fusarium spp. and nematodes. Two neighbouring greenhouses and the same greenhouse in the previous year were taken as a reference. This neighbouring greenhouses received applications with commercial references.

Evolution of the population of Fusarium spp. and nematodes after the application of ECONATUR products in the different evaluations:


SOIL provided the ideal conditions for the development of the crop, being complemented by FUSARUM and NEMICIN. The ECONATUR strategy achieved:

  • More balanced microbial flora in the soil.
  • Control of soil pathogens.
  • 130% increase in production.
  • Soil in a favorable agronomic state for the next planting.
