Agri-Tech Express with Itaka International - Innovative vegetable production; successful introduction of natural products to improve plant resilience
Itaka International will be sharing how their successful introduction of natural products is improving plant resistance in innovative vegetable farming. Through reviewing crop production systems Itaka aim to reduce predisposition to common threats on vegetable crops while also decreasing the dependence to agrochemicals.
Examples on how to address issues of growing concerns on vegetable crops such as:
- soil pathogens (fusarium, rhizoctonia, sclerotinia)
- foliar diseases (powdery and downy mildew, early blight)
- foliar insects (aphids, white flies)
- And how to decrease their occurrence, in view of ongoing reduction of available solutions.
This event would be of relevance to anyone looking at production quality and residue free solutions for added value which could include, but not limited to: farmers; technicians, consultants and institutes.
