While the origin of rice is in Asia, it is nowadays cultivated in wetlands and river deltas worldwide, being the second most cultivated cereal on a global level. Furthermore, it is a fundamental part of the diet of many countries. There are more than 10,000 known variants, with the Bomba variant the one best known in Spain. The most common diseases affecting rice are those caused by fungus infections-their incidence and severity may cause the loss of up to 70% of crops. This makes it a prerogative to take preventive measures during the entire cultivation cycle.
This past week, Bioiberica presented the beneficial effects of their product Armurox on rice crops to more than 100 people in Managua, Nicaragua.
An important Bioiberica delegation, along with representatives from their main distributor in Latin America and several sugarcane mill technicians, attended the congress of the Association of Sugar Technicians of Mexico (Asociación de Técnicos Azucareros de México, ATAM).
Downy and powdery mildew are the most prevalent fungal diseases affecting garlic and onion crops. This is why Bioiberica has developed a complete eco-friendly strategy against both diseases that can replace the standard chemical treatments; leaving no residues and do not need restricted entry intervals.
Armurox® is a product certified for ecological agriculture. It is composed of an active peptide complex combined with soluble silicon which mechanically reinforces plant tissue against mechanic and pathogen-caused stress.
Phytopathogenic fungi rank among the most common causes of diseases in economically important plant crops worldwide. They not only damage the crops-fungal diseases also weaken the plant’s ability to resist biotic or abiotic stress factors. The new approaches to plant protection against fungal disease have aroused interest because of environmental concerns and norms restricting use of pesticides.
Bioiberica presents Armurox®, the product against pathogen-induced plant stress. Armurox® is a dual-action product: creates a physical barrier under the plant cuticle and boosts the plants’ inner defenses.
