Tinder, a disease of the vine commonly treated with sodium arsenite, saw an upsurge in its presence in crops after the European Union banned this product in 2003.As it is a pest of fungal origin, it is a disease that is easy to spread and difficult to eradicate and transmits very quickly. A natural protection against the disease of the vineThe Spanish company Nostoc Biotech has found a natural and very efficient solution against this condition that devastates vine crops. It is a product created from liquid earthworm humus which results in an ecological biopesticide that respects the natural balance of the plant and its environment, efficiently preventing the spread of the fungus. This humus is presented as an enormous advance in the technology to fight against parasites in crops and that aims to find the most appropriate formulas to combat diseases in a safe way for humans and animals but with a percentage of effectiveness able to compete with the old chemicals so denigrated today because of its toxicity.
Innovation and biological progress The company seeks to transform agriculture into a much more sustainable formula that approaches natural methods and leave aside the excessive use of pesticides and chemicals to result in food products much healthier for human consumption.With this objective in mind, Enrique Cat's company seeks to produce different types of fertilizers and soil protectors with formulas that are totally based on natural, ecological elements and respectful of the natural balance of the earth and nature.prevention vs. cureThe fertilizer and protector products created by this Madrid company have a basically preventive function that seeks to avoid contamination of the plant with the fungus that causes the disease. In this way, contamination never occurs and the condition is not present in the crop, making the control of the possible plague much more efficient, healthy and simple.the absence of the disease due to prevention allows considerable savings in treatments and specific care to avoid contamination between affected and healthy plants. The absence of the disease due to prevention allows considerable savings in treatments and specific care to avoid contamination between affected and healthy plants, and also significantly reduces the possibility of total loss of elements in each crop, since the disease is never present, keeping the health of each plant intact.
