SEIPASA presents new tools for integrated control of vines

December 1, 2015
SEIPASA has developed bioinsecticides and biofungicides that have demonstrated great efficiency against some of the principal pests and diseases in vines. Different tests conducted in this crop in various parts of Europe corroborate the effectiveness of the latest natural treatments that SEIPASA is working on, while ensuring a harvest free of residues. These advances have been disclosed in the International Meeting "The vine and wine: Quality wine through Integrated Vineyard management” organised by the magazine Phytoma-España with the collaboration of the Polytechnic University of Valencia.

The Director of the Technical Department at SEIPASA, Xavier Nácher, and the agronomy engineer, Dr. Altea Calabuig have unveiled 'New tools for integrated control in vines' in a meeting with experts from Italy, France and Spain, and which has been sponsored by the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV).

Adopting Integrated Management in the vineyards as a system for quality crops requires the availability of tools to maintain good plant health without neglecting environmental aspects that this type of management incorporates. One of the main objectives is to reduce the risks and adverse effects of pesticide use on human health and the environment, and promote agro - ecosystem biodiversity.

In this sense, SEIPASA has developed various biopesticides that help farmers to establish effective, rational and respectful treatment programmes and whose efficacy studies were presented at the symposium Phytoma -Spain. Among the new formulas, the result of the company's latest research, we find a bioinsecticide and fungicide, which, for their excellent efficacy results, are a good choice to be incorporated into the Integrated Management Vineyard cultivation. Tests have analysed the potential of these products, their respect for the environmental and guarantee of obtaining a final result without residues.
