From Plant Biostress
In this test, three applications of micocel at a dose of 3 kg/ha were carried out. The results were compared to those of a control treatment and of a standard chemical treatment. On days 7, 14 and 21 after each treatment, the state of the crop was determined by assessing the degree of infection by the pathogen Pseudoperonospora cubensis. The results indicated that micocel has a very positive effect on the state of the crop.
Efficacy of micocel on lettuce
After 4 applications of micocel at a dose of 3 kg/ha and intervals of 7-10 days, the state of the crop was determined by assessing the degree of infection by Bremia lactucae. The test demonstrated that micocel is able to optimise the state of the crop in the presence of pathogens.Efficacy of micocel on leeks
When applied every 3 weeks from September to March (9 treatments in total), micocel significantly reduced biotic stress, which resulted in a lower percentage of infected plants as compared with the control treatment. After 9 applications, no significant differences with the standard chemical treatment were observed. Moreover, plants treated with micocel had a higher yield.
