Get better results from glyphosate We always knew that Wetcit greatly enhanced the performance of glyphosate – but we never knew why or by how much. This past year, the University of Illinois was given the job of answering both of these questions. Dr. Dean Riechers and Dr. Anatoli Lygin from the Department of Crop Sciences conducted a series of experiments to investigate the effect of Wetcit on the performance of Roundup®

In comparison, Roundup PowerMAX alone was still yet to distribute throughout the leaf and no translocation had begun. • 12 hours after application, the Wetcit plus Roundup PowerMAX combination had completely moved through the plant including the roots. Roundup PowerMAX by itself was still localised in the leaf tissues. The study looked at other wetting agents, including non-ionic surfactants and oils. In all comparisons, the combination of Roundup PowerMAX with Wetcit showed superior distribution through the plant and in a shorter amount of time.

CROP PROTECTION

Biostimulants Psa-V management with Actigard™ post-harvest The period between harvest and leaf-fall is a high risk for Psa-V in kiwifruit, with cooler and wetter weather favouring Psa-V infection in the autumn. Wounds created at harvest provide ideal entry points for Psa-V and late season growth (especially in male vines) is particularly vulnerable to Psa-V. The application of approved protectant sprays is recommended immediately post-harvest to help protect fruit stalks, leaves and late season growth from Psa-V infection. This includes copper, with the addition of Actigard where there is no risk of spray drift onto fruit. The benefit of applying Actigard early post-harvest is that leaves are in better condition to absorb the systemic active ingredient (acibenzolars-methyl), to provide up to 21 days protection. It can take 4 to 7 days for Actigard to fully activate kiwifruit vines, so the addition of copper is recommended for immediate protection and also for multiple modes of action against Psa-V.

To avoid the risk of residues when applying Actigard post-harvest, extreme care must be taken to avoid spray drift onto fruit in unharvested areas of the orchard or neighbouring orchards. Sprayer tanks must also be cleaned thoroughly before any other products are applied to unharvested vines. The precise mode of action of Actigard on Psa-V is not fully understood. However, Actigard has consistently shown to reduce the symptoms of Psa-V by stimulating the natural self-defence system of kiwifruit via a response known as Systemic Acquired Resistance (SAR). Trials in kiwifruit have shown that reducing the level of Psa-V infection in the autumn can help to reduce the symptoms of Psa-V in the following spring. For more advice on the use of Actigard for Psa-V management, contact your Farmlands Technical Advisor.

Actigard should be applied at a rate of 200g/ha as a dilute spray in conjunction with copper as soon as practical after harvest, with good coverage of leaves, fruit stalks and leaf scars required to optimise efficacy. Actigard can be applied to kiwifruit up to four times per season. Depending on how many Actigard sprays have been applied previously, up to two applications of Actigard can be applied at 21 day intervals post-harvest if canopy condition allows (i.e. leaves are still green). Actigard is likely to be less effective when applied to leaves at an advanced stage of deterioration or after a significant frost event. Growers should avoid applying Actigard to vines already stressed due to frost, high winds or excessive moisture. This means applying Actigard prior to, rather than after, high risk weather events.

Biostimulants KiwiVax

Kriss

1.5B CFU/G ACTINIDIA TRICHODERMA

• Kriss stimulates cell division in young fruitlets and increases the biosynthesis of auxins and polyamines, natural promoters of cell multiplication, by supplying their precursors (tryptophan and arginine). The effect is corroborated by plant extracts highly rich in natural auxins. • To support fruit growth, Kriss also supplies vegetal amino acids and macronutrients, which improves plant metabolism.

• WP Root Drench for use throughout the kiwifruit industry. • Active ingredient: isolated by Lincoln University and developed in partnership with Zespri. • These strains colonise vine roots, priming plant health and helping to provide a natural resistance to environmental stress through improved nutrient uptake and photosynthesis. • Apply 2-3 times per year for best results, ideally after rain and with soil temperatures over 12 degrees. • Application rate is 200g/ha in the open orchard with a water rate of around 1,000 litres. • In the nursery a concentrated mix should be made using 200g per 100 litres as a root dip or via irrigation.

Sunred

• Growth activator and anti-stress, based on vegetal extracts. • Ensures vegetative developments, production increase, antistress action and improves the absorption of vital nutrients. • Stimulates the anti-stress gene marker AT4G10270.1 by 62 times. • It is safe, natural, highly innovative and easy to use with no residue issues. • Is a step beyond organic certification, because it is developed according to Geapower vision. • Can be used on plants to overcome low temperatures. • Can be used to improve and accelerate the absorption of fertilisers and vital nutrients.

• Sunred® contains plant extracts rich in oxylipins, natural enhancers of many ripening-related processes that act on fruit DNA directly. • Sunred® stimulates pigment accumulation and supplies both precursor (phenylalanine) and enhancer (oxylipins) of the biosynthetic pathways of anthocyanin, the pigments mainly responsible for fruit colouring. It also contributes to sugar accumulation and monosaccharides serves as a carbon and energy source for plants’ primary metabolism. • Sunred’s oxylipins induce the natural synthesis of lignin and monolignols, phenolic compounds able to reinforce cell walls. As a result, Sunred® does not alter flesh firmness and fruit storability.

CROP PROTECTION

Fungicides Post–harvest ‘clean up’ in grapes The main driver of grape vine powdery mildew Erysiphe necator is the quantity of inoculum carried over from the past season. The aim of a post-harvest “clean up” is to stop the production of cleistothecia, so that the infection can’t overwinter. Good disease control can prevent cleistothecia production. However, it is generally produced in the late summer to early autumn period, post-veraison, when powdery mildew preventative practices historically have ceased.

Appl. Microbiol. Biotechnol. 30:415-421. Gadoury, D.M. and Pearson, R.C. 1990. Ascocarp dehiscence and ascospores discharge in Uncinula necator. Phytopathology 80:393-401 Gadoury, D.M., Pearson, R.C., Riegel, D.G., Seem, R.C, Becker, C.M. and Pscheidt, J.W. 1994 Reduction of powdery mildew and other diseases by over the trellis applications of lime sulphur to dormant grapevine. Plant Disease 78:83-87. Gadoury, D.M., Wakefield, L.M., Cadle-Davidson, L., Dry, I.B. and Seem, R.C. 2012. Effects of Prior Vegative Growth, Inoculum Density, Light, and Mating of Conidiation of Erysiphe necator. Phytopathology 102 65-72.

Developing cleistothecia The initiation of cleistothecia sees the asexual sporulation stop in powdery mildew colonies. Once initiated, cleistothecia start out white, turn yellow, brown then finally black and once there is necrosis of the anchoring hyphae they are considered mature. Erysiphe necator cleistothecia can contain up to 36 ascospores. Once detached, the fruiting bodies are dispersed by rain splash onto bark, trunk, leaf litter and soil. Ascospore survival is consistently higher in exfoliating bark. Excel Oil, Lime Sulphur and HML32 + Nordox eradicate the mycelium network on the leaf surface and kill the developing cleistothecia. They will not kill the matured cleistothecia, so eradication before they mature is essential for the management of inoculum. This improves the long-term control of powdery mildew.

Pre-spray

An autumn eradicant fungicide followed by a pre-flowering eradicant can be critical in the effectiveness of a season long preventative fungicide programme. “Action taken to eradicate cleistothecia can reduce significantly the incidence and severity of powdery mildew” – Gadoury et al.

CROP PROTECTION

Herbicides Activated Amitrole

Arietta

400G/L AMITROLE 100G/L AMMONIUM THIOCYNATE 230G/L SULPHAMIC ACID • Broad spectrum herbicide used to control many grass and broadleaf weeds in orchards and vineyards and non-cropping areas. • Readily absorbed and fully translocated within the plant, providing excellent control of hard to kill weed species. • Ideal for use in vineyards and orchards where continued use of glyphosate has resulted in lack of control.

336G/L TOPRAMEZONE • Arietta is a post-emergence herbicide for the control of a range of broadleaf and grass weeds in maize (silage and grain) and sweetcorn. Arietta is taken up by both leaves and roots and transported within the plant where it interferes with the synthesis of carotenoids. This leads to bleaching (chlorosis) of leaves and weeds typically die within 14 days of treatment. Although Arietta is systemic, thorough coverage of the target weed is necessary for optimum results. Application to small, actively growing weeds when conditions are conducive to maximum photosynthesis (moist, warm, bright sunshine) is ideal.

Glyphosate resistance? Glyphosate was originally discovered by Swiss chemist Henri Martin in 1950 but it was not until 1970 that another scientist, John Franz, synthesised the molecule “glyphosate”. This was then patented by Monsanto as the active ingredient for the herbicide Roundup®. Prior to the introduction of Roundup to the market, Paraquat, Amitrole and cultivation were the main weed control options for horticulturalists. Roundup offered growers a broad spectrum perennial herbicide, which had a much safer environmental and user toxicity than those being used at the time. However, the cost of the brand Roundup remained relatively expensive, so many growers continued to use a mix of herbicide options in their programmes. When Monsanto’s glyphosate patent expired in 2000 and many generic suppliers came to the market, the price plummeted, turning this highly effective but expensive product into the cheapest broad spectrum option for horticultural use. Its cheapness is one of the main factors that has contributed to its downfall – the development of resistance. Glyphosate is now the most widely used herbicide on the planet. In recent times, glyphosate has given effective control with a low cost per hectare and many growers have just used glyphosate and glyphosate mixes with application rate spikes designed to increase control. Often little alternative chemistry is being used during the season, or from year to year. If we are to keep this chemistry working for us in the future, we must now introduce a sustainable resistance

management programme, just like those used for other pesticides. There are two main points that must be considered if we are going to keep glyphosate in our programmes: Rate per hectare: Under-dosing is a leading cause of resistance development. Often an application rate is selected that kills many of the weeds present but some individual weeds survive and grow back. They are then re-treated with a sub-lethal dose of the same chemical. When deciding on the correct application rate per hectare, it is critical that all of the species in the area being treated are identified. The application rate chosen must provide complete control of the hardest to kill weed. In the photographs, glyphosate resistant ryegrass was identified so Vixen (glufosinate + oxyfluorfen) was chosen. At 4.0L/ha the Vixen was ineffective at controlling this species, however at 6.0L/ha it was controlled. Mixing up chemistry: All growers, regardless of whether resistance has been identified or not, should be implementing a programme of mixing herbicide groups throughout the year. The options will vary depending on the crops and the weed species present. Farmlands Technical Advisors are trained to assist growers with a planned approach to using a mix of chemistry to control all weed species in an economical and sustainable manner.

Using Mineral Oils: How does mineral oil work? Mineral oils work by blocking the breathing holes or trachea of insects, smothering them. Unlike most chemistry this is effective at all stages of the lifecycle, including the eggs.

Excel Oil 848g/L – is for dormant/out of season use. Excellent clean up spray for scale and mites. In grapes we recommend the use of oil with a suitable insecticide to obtain optimum control of mealy bug.

Mineral oils kill only those insects it covers on the initial spray application. No residual effect on insect populations exist.

Excel Organic Oil 832g/L – is the same high quality oil as Excel Oil, with a new emulsificaion system that meets all international standards for organics and is proven to be effective and safe to use on the most oil sensitive crops. BioGro approved.

Excel Oil’s effect on beneficial insects is short lived or non-effective, maintaining balance within the orchard. Mineral oils have no fumigant, translaminar or systemic properties so they rely on full dilute coverage to be effective.

single product without a Resistance Management Strategy can lead to development of resistance.” With a focus on research, Dow AgroSciences has an impressive track record of developing new insecticides. Nick warns that where new products are brought to market and sensible Resistance Management Strategies are ignored, the result could be insects developing resistance to these products. Inappropriate use of new products is simply not sustainable in the long term and will inevitably result in companies not registering products in markets where they are likely to be abused. “The cost and time taken to bring new active ingredients to market is enormous. Companies have always counted on being able to recover those costs over the life of the product. Should the effective life of products be dramatically reduced, then the retail costs of the product would have to be dramatically increased to achieve the same result. The overuse of any insecticide, which results in resistance, ultimately limits growers’ options. Remaining products are likely to be less effective, less selective to beneficial insects and/or more expensive.”

Transform™ and Sparta™ are both great options to use in rotation with other insecticides with different MOA. They are friendly to most key beneficial insects, which makes them ideal for early use in the season so beneficial insect populations are preserved and increase. This is particularly important as beneficials can prevent emergence of secondary pests, reduce the selection pressure on pests and thereby help delay the onset of resistance. They can also keep the pest population below threshold level and reduce the need for spray applications later in the season. As the tables show, both Transform and Sparta have no reported incidences of resistance to any pest, and, use of Transform or Sparta will kill pests resistant to other insecticides. In addition the quick knockdown of Transform on aphids (first symptoms can be seen in just 20 minutes) has been identified as a key factor in reducing the spread of viruses which have aphids as a vector. GPA is known to be a vector of over 100 viruses including Beet Western Yellows Virus (BWYV) and Cucumber Mosaic Virus (CMV). Article supplied by Dow AgroSciences NZ, 2016.

Be more selective.

Be more selective - get rid of the pests while choosing something that’s IPM friendly and safe to use. Your first priority has to be diamondback moth, white butterfly, leaf miner and looper. But if you can do that in a way that’s safer for you and for the beneficial insects, you’re onto a winner. That’s Sparta™. It’s easily the best caterpillar product on the market. That’s because nothing kills caterpillars better than Sparta, and it does it without harming the good guys. Now you can be pest-free and eco-friendly.

Plant Nutrition Fertigation Within horticulture, fertigation is used to supply additional nutrients or to correct nutrient deficiencies. Fertigation is generally used on crops such as vegetables, fruit and ornamentals.

• A reduced need for fertiliser, chemicals and water to sustain growth.

The benefits of fertigation compared to conventional or drop-fertilising methods include:

- Water consumption is reduced due to the plant’s increased root masses that amplify the plant’s ability to trap and hold water.

• An increase in plant nutrient absorption.

• Nutrient application can be controlled.

- Decreased chemical use reduces leeching of chemicals into the water supply.

• The risk of roots contracting soil borne diseases through contaminated soil is minimised.

B Boron

Boron is essential for cell wall formation and rapid growing points within the plant, such as reproductive structures. While higher plants require boron, animals, fungi and microorganisms do not need it. Boron improves seed set under stressful conditions.

• Boron uptake by plants is controlled by the boron level in soil solution rather than the total boron content in soil. Boron uptake is a passive (non-metabolic) process. It moves with water in plant tissues and accumulates in the leaves – boron uptake and accumulation are directly dependent on the rate of transpiration. • Crops vary widely in their need for boron and the line between deficiency and toxicity is narrow compared to other nutrients. Boron should be applied carefully, especially in rotations involving different sensitivities to boron. It is important that fertilisers containing boron are applied uniformly in broadcast applications rather than in-furrow situations. Boron placed close to the seed greatly reduces stand counts.

• Calcium replaces hydrogen from the surface of soil when limestone is added to reduce soil acidity.

Ca Calcium

• It is essential for microorganisms to turn crop residues into organic matter, release nutrients and improve soil aggregation and water retention. • Calcium improves the absorption of other nutrients by roots and their translocation within the plant and activates a number of plant growth-regulating enzyme systems. • It helps convert nitrate-nitrogen into forms needed for protein formation, which is required for cell wall formation and normal cell division. • Calcium deficiencies mostly occur in acidic, sandy soil, where calcium has been leeched by rain or irrigation. It is also likely to occur in acidic peat and muck soils. • Calcium, magnesium and potassium help to neutralise organic acids that form during cell metabolism in plants. An equal supply of calcium, potassium and magnesium should be available to balance plant nutrition. An excess of one can lead to a shortage or uptake (antagonism) of another.

Fe Iron

Iron is essential for crop growth and food production.

• Iron is involved in the production of chlorophyll and iron chlorosis is easily recognised on iron-sensitive crops growing on calcareous soils. Iron also makes up many enzymes associated with energy transfer, nitrogen reduction and fixation and lignin formation. Iron is associated with sulphur in plants to form compounds that catalyse other reactions. • An iron deficiency is demonstrated by yellowed leaves that result from low levels of chlorophyll. Leaf yellowing first appears on the younger, upper leaves in interveinal tissues. Severe iron deficiencies cause leaves to turn completely yellow or almost white and then brown as leaves die.

Mg Magnesium

• Magnesium has an important role in the process of photosynthesis, as it is a building block of the chlorophyll that makes leaves appear green. • A magnesium deficiency, like any deficiency, can lead to yield reduction and can also result in higher susceptibility to plant disease. • Magnesium deficiency is more likely when conditions such as low soil pH, low temperatures, dry soil conditions and high levels of competing elements, such as potassium and calcium, reduce the availability of magnesium. • The visibility of symptoms is greatly dependent on the intensity to which leaves are exposed to light – magnesium deficient plants that are exposed to high light intensities will show more symptoms. The first symptom is pale leaves, which then develop an interveinal chlorosis. In some plants, reddish or purple spots will appear on the leaves. Since magnesium is mobile within the plant, deficiency symptoms appear on lower and older leaves first.

FERTILISERS

Plant Nutrition Mn Manganese

• Manganese functions as part of enzyme systems in plants, activating several important metabolic reactions and playing a direct role in photosynthesis. Manganese speeds up germination and maturity and increased availability of phosphorus and calcium. • Manganese is immobile in plants, so symptoms of deficiency appear first on younger leaves, with yellowing between the veins and sometimes a series of brownish-black specks. In small grains, greyish areas occur near the base of younger leaves. Manganese deficiencies are common in soils with high organic matter and in soils with naturally low manganese content and neutral to alkaline pH. Delayed maturity in some species, whitish-grey spots on leaves of some cereal crops and shortened internodes in cotton are other symptoms of manganese deficiency. • Manganese deficiencies are often associated with soils of high pH, which can be the result of an imbalance with other nutrients such as calcium, magnesium and iron. Soil moisture also affects the availability of manganese. Deficiency symptoms are most severe in soils with high organic matter during cool spring months, when soils are waterlogged – and can disappear as soils dry and temperatures warm. • Manganese deficiencies can be corrected in a number of ways, such as keeping soil pH below 6.5 (if liming caused the deficiency) or mixing soluble salts (e.g. manganese sulphate) with starter fertiliser and applying in bands. A field deficiency symptom can be corrected by foliar application. • An extremely acidic pH in some soils may cause manganese toxicity to crops. Soil pH must be 5.0 or lower before there is a threat of significant toxicity. Liming will eliminate this problem.

Mo Molybdenum

• Molybdenum (Mo) is a trace element found in the soil and is required for the synthesis and activity of the enzyme nitrate reductase. Molybdenum is vital for the process of symbiotic nitrogen (N) fixation by rhizobia bacteria in legume root modules. Considering Molybdenum’s importance in optimising plant growth, it’s fortunate that Molybdenum deficiencies are relatively rare in most agricultural cropping areas. • Symptoms of deficiency can vary across crop species but similarities exist for how nutrient insufficiency impacts plant tissue colour and appearance. Nutrient deficiencies are commonly associated with the physical location on the plant (i.e., whether the symptoms are primarily observed on older versus newly formed plant tissue) but these symptoms can spread as the severity of the deficiency progresses. • Molybdenum deficiencies show up as general yellowing or stunting of the plant, and more specifically in the marginal scorching and cupping or rolling of leaves. A Molybdenum deficiency can also cause N-deficiency symptoms in legume crops such as soybeans and alfalfa, because soil bacteria growing symbiotically in legume root nodules must have Mo to help fix N from the air. • Molybdenum deficiencies occur mainly in acidic, sandy soils in humid regions. Sandy soils, in particular, more typically lack Molybdenum than finer-textured soils. Molybdenum becomes more available as soil pH goes up, the opposite of other micronutrients. Since Mo becomes more available with increasing pH, liming will correct a deficiency if soil contains enough of the nutrient. However, seed treatment is the most common way of correcting Mo deficiency because only very small amounts of the nutrient are required. • Heavy P applications increase Mo uptake by plants, while heavy sulphur (S) applications decrease Molybdenum uptake. Applying heavy amounts of S-containing fertiliser on soils with a borderline Molybdenum level may induce Molybdenum deficiency.

N Nitrogen

• Nitrogen is vital in successful crop growth as it is a major component of chlorophyll, the compound required by plants for photosynthesis. This means that the plant will not utilise sunlight to form essential functions such as nutrient uptake. • Nitrogen is a major component of amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins that are vital in plant life. •

It is a significant component of nucleic acids such as DNA, the genetic material that allows plant fertility.

• Nitrogen fertiliser rates are determined by the crop to be grown, yield goal and quantity of nitrogen that might be provided by the soil. Rates needed to achieve different yields with different crops vary by region and such decisions are usually based on local recommendations and experience.

Plant Nutrition P Phosphorus

• Phosphorus is an essential nutrient because it is part of a number of key plant structure compounds. Phosphorus is well-known for its role in photosynthesis. • Phosphorus is a fundamental component of ATP, the “energy unit” of plants. ATP forms during photosynthesis, has phosphorus in its structure and processes from the beginning of seedling growth through to the formation of grain and maturity. • Phosphorus is vital for general plant health and also contributes to specific growth factors such as root development, stalk and stem strength and flower formation and seed production. • It speeds maturity and increases disease resistance. • Sufficient supplies of other plant nutrients can increase the absorption of phosphorus from the soil. For example, application of ammonium forms of nitrogen with phosphorus increases phosphorus uptake from a fertiliser, compared to applying the phosphorus fertiliser alone or applying the nitrogen and phosphorus fertilisers separately.

K Potassium

• Potassium is essential in almost all processes needed to sustain plant growth and reproduction. Potassium deficiencies in plants can affect root growth and cause plants to become less resistant to fluctuations in water level and temperature. Potassium improves the overall health of growing plants by helping to build resistance against pest, disease and nematode attacks. • Potassium affects size, shape, colour and vigour of the seed or grain. • Aids the plant in photosynthesis and food creation by helping to move sugars and starches. • Uptake times for potassium vary with different plants. Although, plants generally absorb the majority of their potassium at an earlier growth stage than they do nitrogen and phosphorus.

Zn Zinc

• Zinc was one of the first micronutrients recognised as essential for plants and the one most commonly limiting yields. Although zinc is required in small amounts, high yields are impossible without it. • Zinc is heavily involved in enzyme systems that regulate the early growth stages and is vital for fruit, seed and root system development, as well as photosynthesis, formation of plant growth regulators and crop stress protection. Zinc teams up with nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium in many plant-development processes. • Compared to nitrogen or potassium, soils require zinc in very small amounts – but a lack of zinc can limit plant growth, just like nitrogen or potassium, if the soil is deficient or crop uptake is restricted. In addition to being an essential component of various enzyme systems for energy production, zinc is required in protein synthesis and growth regulation. Zinc-deficient plants also display delayed maturity. Since zinc is not mobile in the plant, zinc deficiency symptoms occur mainly in new growth. This lack of mobility in plants suggests the need for a constant supply of available zinc for optimum growth.

FERTILISERS

Foliar Macro and Micronutrients Micronutrients Micronutrients including boron, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, zinc, nickel and chloride are vital for the growth of plants and play a significant role in balanced crop nutrition. They are just as important to plant nutrition as primary and secondary nutrients, although plants do not require as much of them. A deficiency of any micronutrient in the soil can limit growth, even when all other nutrients are present in sufficient amounts.

B 2000

Due to increased use of soil testing and plant analyses, many soils have shown micronutrient deficiencies. Reasons limiting the incidental additions of micronutrients include: • High-yield crop demands remove micronutrients from the soil. • Increased use of high-analysis NPK fertilisers containing lesser quantities of micronutrient contaminants. • Advances in fertiliser technology reduces the residual addition of micronutrients. These factors contribute to the substantial increase in the usage of and need for micronutrients in order to achieve balanced nutrition.

Moana Iron is an organic proteinated chelate and more bio-available than iron sulphate. Moana Iron Chelate is non toxic, feeds soil micro-organisms and plants. Iron draws energy to the leaf by absorbing heat from the sun. It makes the leaf darker, thus absorbing more energy. Iron is necessary for the maintenance and synthesis of chlorophyll and RNA metabolism in the chloroplasts.

Essential component of chlorophyll. Acts as a carrier of phosphorus. Suppressed by potassium. Low sunlight hours (low plant energy levels) reduces the plant’s ability to lift magnesium levels. Foliar feeding helps overcome this imbalance. Tissue between leaf veins become chlorotic (pale green, yellow). First observed in older leaves. As the magnesium content lifts in the leaf, the potassium level declines and nutritional balance is achieved.

Biostimulants Fylloton •

Fylloton promotes the synthesis of proteins and natural growth substances, it is rich in Tryptophan, the precursor of auxins, which stimulate plant vegetative growth. By promoting plant energy savings and metabolic activity, the result allows plants to keep growing in environmental stress conditions and to overcome growth arrests due to agrochemical application. Fylloton uses the synergy between amino acids of vegetal origin (deriving from enzymatic hydrolysis, a process that does not alter their structure and functionality) and seaweed (rich in natural growth promoters) to encourage plant growth.

K-BOMBER 55 •

K-Bomber 55 is a speciality fertiliser that can stimulate plants’ ripening processes, resulting in improved quality and uniform production. The high solubility of the formulation speeds up foliar uptake and assimilation of potassium. It also controls excessive vegetative growth and induces the plant to produce strong and turgid cell tissues, which can assist in increasing fruit size, improvements in fruit quality, colour, consistency, sugar content and shelf life.

Kriss •

Kriss stimulates cell division in young fruitlets and increases the biosynthesis of auxins and polyamines, natural promoters of cell multiplication, by supplying their precursors (tryptophan and arginine). The effect is corroborated by plant extracts highly rich in natural auxins. To support fruit growth, Kriss also supplies vegetal amino acids and macro nutrients, which improves plant metabolism. The effect of Kriss is magnified by “uptake b ioenhancers”, high performance surfactants that combine the tensioactive properties of chemical wetting agents with the carrier action of biological macro molecules.

SunRed •

FARMLANDS

SunRed® contains plant extracts rich in oxylipins, natural enhancers of many ripening-related processes that act on fruit DNA directly. SunRed® stimulates pigment accumulation and supplies both precursor (phenylalanine) and enhancer (oxylipins) of the biosynthetic pathways of anthocyanin, the pigments mainly responsible for fruit colouring. It also contributes to sugar accumulation and monosaccharides serve as carbon and energy rgy source for plants primary metabolism. SunRed’s oxylipins induce the natural synthesis of lignin and monolignols, phenolic compounds able to reinforce cell walls. As a result, SunRed® does not alter flesh firmness and fruit storability.

FERTILISERS

Solid Fertilisers RPR •

Organic Boost

RPR (reactive phosphate rock) is a slow-release phosphate fertiliser ideal for maintaining levels of phosphate in the soil. RPR breaks down under acid soil conditions, releasing phosphate to the soil over time. Using RPR has a number of benefits, including minimal phosphate losses through leaching and run-off.

40kg: 114473 Bulk: 181017

No. 4472

Organic Boost is a complete soil and plant food crafted entirely from Bio Gro certified products – including fishmeal and humates for soil biology and natural phosphate, potassium and magnesium. Organic Boost was developed to be the perfect multi-purpose organic fertiliser for fruits, vegetables and pasture. Organic Boost will not only deliver the nutrients that your plants require but also protects and encourage soil’s natural biodiversity.

Fishmeal •

* Product registered with BioGro.

Sulphate Of Potash - Sop

Organic nitrogen fishmeal contains approximately 63% protein and is biologically broken down into plant available nitrogen. The protein content equates to about 10% nitrogen. Proteins are at the start of the mineralisation process within the soil, breaking down initially into amino acids that when broken down, release energy and ammonia, which is is eventually converted to nitrate, whilst the energy is used by soil micro-organisms.

Sulphate of Potash (or potassium sulphate) supplies two key plant nutrients – potassium and sulphur. A fast-acting fertiliser, it is commonly used in intensive farming situations to correct potassium and sulphur deficiencies. Sulphate of Potash has a low chloride content, making it ideal for use on chloride-sensitive crops.

Biological Protection and Natural Pollination Natural Biological Control

Bumble bees are exceptionally effective pollinators of crops both in greenhouses, under covered crops and in open-air situations.

Cleaner cultivation process, naturally good Zonda Beneficials provide biological crop protection by using beneficial bugs for the natural controls of plant pests and diseases. We offer solutions for the protection of your crop, for your own interests and those of your employees, your customers and the environment.

In recent years there is evidence and research to show that the bumble bee is very effective in a range of outdoor crops, particularly kiwifruit, blueberries, avocado and other stonefruits.

More and more people are becoming aware of what they buy and what they eat. An environmentally friendly production process, food safety, and a quality end product are the key issues for consumers. Zonda Beneficials helps growers in the food and ornamental plant cultivation sectors to meet today’s demands and legal requirements. When natural enemies are used to control pests, the use of crop protection chemicals can be reduced and sometimes even eliminated altogether, which of course is also beneficial to the grower and their environment. Pollination using bumble bees. Greater yields, better fruit quality and better returns In the past, naturally occurring pollinators were abundant. However over time with the extensive use of broad-spectrum insecticides by growers, along with the wide decrease in the wild honey bee population, the situation has changed. Growers are now seeing the many benefits of using bumble bees, as well as using bumble bees in conjunction with other pollinators. Many growers are finding a diminished size in the fruit they grow and the number of fruit per plant is reduced. In most cases, this can be directly attributed to the lack of proper pollination.

Why bumble bees? In comparison with other pollinating insects like honey bees, bumble bees are very effective pollinators. They are fast workers, visiting twice as many flowers per minute than honey bees. Because of their size they can carry much heavier loads, which allows them to be out foraging for longer periods at a time. Their larger size also allows them to have better contact with the stamens and pistils than smaller insects. Bumble bees make relatively few demands on the circumstances under which they work. They feel more at ease in greenhouse/tunnels than honey bees for instance, particularly in restricted areas. Bumble bees will still work in low temperatures and low light levels – even strong wind and drizzle will not deter them. Bumble bees lack the sophisticated communication system that honey bees have. This is an advantage as they will be less likely to leave your crop for more attractive flowers. Should an individual bumble bee find an attractive food source elsewhere, it cannot inform its companions. Buzz pollination Bumble bees pollinate flowers through a method called ‘buzz pollination’. This is when the bumble bee grabs onto the flowers and anthers to vibrate and dislodge the pollen. This allows a bumble bee to pollinate a flower in a single visit, whereas the honey bee may need to visit the flower 7-10 times before it is fully pollinated.

Proper pollination is essential for optimal fruit set and production. Article supplied by Zonda Beneficials.

HORTICULTURAL TEXTILES

Protective Cloth Reducing the impact of wind damage Even moderate wind causes loss in productivity and quality through:

• Artificial windbreak/shelter cloth is instant.

1. High evapotranspiration rates (plant stress). 2. Physical damage to plants.

• Windbreak shelter cloth can be designed to give predictable performance.

3. Disruption of sprinkler distribution patterns.

• They don’t harbour pests and diseases.

4. Time and cost to replace damaged plants.

• Minimal maintenance with a minimum 10 year pro rata UV life.

5. Reduced yield.

• Minimal shading of the productive area.

The ideal windbreak should filter the wind, reducing the velocity in the protected area by pushing the bulk of fast moving air above that zone. In intensive horticulture situations, artificial windbreaks have distinct advantages over natural trees. The speed of the wind is reduced as it filters through a windbreak, giving numerous beneficial effects. Although plant species react differently to wind protection because of their different forms, windbreaks generally give increased and earlier crop yields. Without a windbreak, leaf surface can be damaged sufficiently to reduce yields.

The bottom line: Windbreaks reduce wind speed and modify the microclimate of sheltered areas. Overall, these changes improve plant quality and growth. Empak stock a comprehensive range of knitted artificial shelter cloths in white, black or green colours, from 0.91 metre widths right through to 5 metre, in three porosity (percentage of wind block) options depending on load requirements. Typically white shelter cloth is the preferred option for use in kiwifruit blocks, as the colour enhances light reflectivity reducing the effects of shading.

Waste Management Sanizyme Winery waste management is an international problem and Connell Brothers – Enzyme Solutions have worked closely with Australian wineries to develop a specific blend of microbes and enzymes that will assist in the breakdown of organic matter, reduce harmful effects on the environment and reduce mal-odours around the winery. The degradation of organic matter in septic tanks and industrial ponds traditionally relies on the activity of the inherent microbes present in the input feed. This biological activity is easily thrown out of balance when excessive or changing organic loads and harmful chemicals enter the system. The imbalance in the microbial system results in suboptimal breakdown of organic contents, producing unpleasant odours, high sludge and scum levels, frequent clogging and cleaning difficulties.

Activity Sanizyme is a specially designed combination of concentrated enzymes with billions of microbial spores to help restore this natural microbial balance and promote a more efficient system operation in a chemical free, eco-friendly and natural way. The high activity, multi-enzyme system in Sanizyme quickly breaks down the organic material such as fats, proteins, starch and cellulosic material into nutrients that help the billions of spores to rapidly germinate into active bacteria. The increased bacterial activity further results in the continual production of additional enzymes, which go on to liquefy and digest the sewage contents. Results The end result is an increase in liquefaction and reduction of solids, reduction of odour, easier disposal of waste and a safe and easy maintenance system. Regular use of Sanizyme thus rejuvenates tired systems and maintains efficient operation of septic tanks and waste pond water systems. Article supplied by Farmlands Horticulture.

Enzymes

The Enzyme Solutions business segment delivers unique, innovative, biotechnology-derived products and technical services that provide environmentally positive solutions to customer needs. Enzyme Solutions provides dedicated customer and product support and on-site training through tailored programmes of technical expertise in optimising enzyme selection and process parameters.

ENZ YME SOLUTIONS

Enzymes Enzymes can deliver numerous benefits in the wine making process. On the processing side, they help achieve significantly higher recoveries, increase pressing efficiencies, maximise free run and throughput, improve juice clarity, reduce lees losses and facilitate easier flotations and racking. Specialty enzymes can also improve wine quality by releasing increased volatile aromatics and extracting and stabilising higher levels of colour. Technically, enzymes are naturally derived proteins that act on specific organic compounds and speed up biochemical reactions. In the wine making process, enzymes, especially pectinase blends, break down the biochemically complex

grape cell walls, releasing more juice and softening the grape matrix. This in turn leads to the several process benefits mentioned earlier. By effectively breaking down the grape skin and cell structure, pectinases also make it easier to process challenging ‘slip skin’ grape cultivars. Pectinases are best added at the crushing stage, so that they get sufficient reaction time. More importantly, instead of adopting a ‘one size fits all’ approach, the complex biochemistry of the grape cell wall and the different types of pectinases makes it vital that the right type of enzymes are selected, to achieve the desired process objectives and to maximise cost benefits.

* Do not pre-mix enzymes with PMS or add simultaneously. Enzyme failure may occur.

Optivin Pectexel •

Optivin Bruce

A special pectinase blend designed specifically to aid the manufacture of Sauvignon Blanc in typical New Zealand conditions. The combination of different non-GMO pectinases delivers efficient depectinisation at low temperatures and helps release and retain aromatics.

Oleo Flo

An enzyme system that breaks down glucans contributed to by botrytis infections. Left untreated, these glucans increase the viscosity of wine, making filtration extremely difficult or impossible. The application of the Optivin Botry significantly reduces the viscosity and aids easy filtration, thus serving as a safeguard in an infected crop year.

5kg: 178015

A high activity blend of select pectinases and cellulases to help break down the pectin and non-pectin biochemical polymers in oil rich fruits such as olives and avocados. The application of Oleo Flo in the oil extraction process leads to enhanced oil yields with easier oil–water separations and lower residual oil in pomaces.

WINE MAKING INPUTS

Fermentation Aids

Fermentation Aids Sluggish or stuck ferments remain a major concern for winemakers during any vintage. Ensuring good hydration of budding yeast and adequate nutrition of fermenting yeast are some of the most critical steps in ensuring a healthy fermentation. Budding and fermenting yeast differ in their nutrition requirements.

METHOD Addition: Make a slurry of the product by dissolving the product in water or fermenting juice. Add the slurry slowly to the fermentation tank as the presence of solids could cause foaming. Timing: Ferm Boost – add at the beginning of fermentation at the yeast hydration stage.

Budding yeasts The cell walls of budding yeast are highly permeable and hence readily ingest any nutrients provided at the hydration stage.

Ferm Assist and Ferm Classic – add on second or third day of fermentation at approximately 1-2 Baumé drop.

Fermenting yeast These show lower nutrient ingestion capabilities, especially towards the later stages of fermentation. An appropriate supply of micro and macro nutrients including nitrogen and carbon sources, vitamins and inorganic minerals provided at the right growth stage can thus ensure strong yeast growth and complete fermentations.

Ferm Assist •

Ferm Boost

A unique blend of a high efficiency protease combined with yeast nutrients to help ferments continue to completion. The protease breaks down complex proteins into amino acids and peptides, thereby providing multiple sources of YAN for the growing yeast to assimilate and use during the later alcohol stressed stages of fermentation, when the capacity to ingest external nutrients is low. By ensuring nutrient availability at such critical stages in the fermentation, Ferm Assist allows the yeast metabolism to continue towards a smoother and complete ferment.

Designed for budding yeast, this blend of inactivated yeast has been specially formulated to meet the nutritional requirement of the growing yeast. While the yeast sacs and hulls provide a rich source of vitamins and amino acids, glutathione protects the young yeast cells from being killed through osmotic shock. Together, this results in a healthy yeast hydration and a rapid increase in yeast numbers.

Winery Waste Management Sanizyme Winery waste management is an international problem and Connell Brothers – Enzyme Solutions have worked closely with Australian wineries to develop a specific blend of microbes and enzymes that will assist in the breakdown of organic matter, reduce harmful effects on the environment and reduce mal-odours around the winery. The degradation of organic matter in septic tanks and industrial ponds traditionally relies on the activity of the inherent microbes present in the input feed. This biological activity is easily thrown out of balance when excessive or changing organic loads and harmful chemicals enter the system. The imbalance in the microbial system results in suboptimal breakdown of organic contents, producing unpleasant odours, high sludge and scum levels, frequent clogging and cleaning difficulties.

Activity Sanizyme is a specially designed combination of concentrated enzymes with billions of microbial spores to help restore this natural microbial balance and promote a more efficient system operation in a chemical free, eco-friendly and natural way. The high activity, multi-enzyme system in Sanizyme quickly breaks down the organic material such as fats, proteins, starch and cellulosic material into nutrients that help the billions of spores to rapidly germinate into active bacteria. The increased bacterial activity further results in the continual production of additional enzymes, which go on to liquefy and digest the sewage contents. Results The end result is an increase in liquefaction and reduction of solids, reduction of odour, easier disposal of waste and a safe and easy maintenance system. Regular use of Sanizyme thus rejuvenates tired systems and maintains efficient operation of septic tanks and waste pond water systems.

Wine Making Inputs ES 181 •

ES 488

ES 181 is recommended for reductive wine making and fermentation at low temperature. It has a good production of fermentative aromas, which integrate better with varietal tipicity. Alcohol tolerance to 16.5 percent v/v. Optimum fermentation temperature range 10 to 20°C.

500g: 908501

ES 488 is a strain recommended for the production of new world style red wines destined for aging. It enhances and intensifies the varietal characteristics of very ripe red grapes. In particular, it enhances red fruit aromas (raspberry, cranberry, red currant and kirsch cherry) and increases complexity by adding mineral, spicy (licorice) and floral (violet) notes. The resulting wines are already aromatically expressive at the end of the alcoholic fermentation.

500g: 908503

ES 454 •

EZFerm

ES 454 is recommended for the production of wines from very ripe grapes destined for medium – long-term aging. It has controlled and regular fermentation kinetics, which render it suitable for long fermentations and macerations. Given its great extraction capacity, it gives wines with intense colour, stability, great structure and smooth mouth feel.

This blend of two different strains is highly performant in preventing and curing sluggish and stuck fermentation. It can also successfully produce wines from dehydrated grapes. Alcohol tolerance up to 16.5 percent v/v. Optimum fermentation temperature range 12 to 34°C.

Oak Products Established in the Barossa Valley in South Australia in 1990, Suber Oak began research into the production of toasted oak products in a form that could be used in wine making as an alternative to barrels. The use of these oak adjuncts gives winemakers great flexibility in extracting a range of flavours from the oak at considerable savings to the winemaker. Oak source – forests of Jupilles Bercé, Tronçais, Jura and Pennsylvania. Seasoning – dried at the place of origin and in Australia prior to processing. CODE

Cleaners and Sanitisers Cleaners, Sanitisers and Terminal Disinfectants Best food safe practices require all surfaces to be rendered hygienically clean and bacteria free. Within wineries this is accomplished by using an alkaline source to clean, a sanitiser or terminal disinfectant to kill bacterial microbes, followed by a pH check and microbial swab testing for confirmation of hygiene assurance.

To ensure your facility achieves the highest hygiene and FDA, Codex and FSANZ standard, we have also scientifically developed a broad range of oxidising/food grade acids that work synergistically with our cleaning range to provide the quality assurance you require.

Due to the staining attributes of heavier wines or the sticky nature of sweeter wines, there can often be difficult to remove protein/tannin fermenting stains and general soiling. After a decade of research and development, Easy Clean introduced several unique and exclusive products into the market. These products have proven themselves over time in Australia to be extremely successful in cleaning stubborn soils. Our unique and exclusive range for wineries consists of technologies that reduce chemical usage as a substitute to liquid caustic by 46 percent, additives that enhance cleanliness, specialised solutions for crossflows/presses and chlorine replacement technology.
