Alzogur® and Perlka® in focus at AlzChem field crew and sales conference

The annual sales and field crew conference of the agricultural business unit took place once again in Trostberg. In addition to business development issues the latest findings on the technical and economic benefits of AlzChem products were presented. Experience in the practical application of Alzogur® in pig sties shows that this is an extremely effective and comparatively very affordable way to combat flies on a permanent basis. The systematic use of Perlka® in maize cultivation in an optimized system of fertilization results in significant increases in productivity.

Leading crop cultivation experts recommend calcium cyanamide for soil rehabilitation

Economic constraints mean crop farms today are mostly choosing to grow just a few crops. However, more frequent crop rotations allow the pathogens that cause certain plant diseases – harmful fungi, usually – to accumulate in the crop soil. Because these pathogens cannot be tackled in the soil directly the crops grown on them are increasingly contaminated with the diseases these pathogens cause, leading to reduced yields and serious economic losses.
