Longtime evaluation of a Calcicum Cyanamide use at the Bavarian State Research Center for Agriculture

Over a period of 10 years the Bavarian State Research Center for Agriculture tested the effect of calcium cyanamide in potatoes. In 17 trials the effect of a fertilization with 400 kg/ha of calcium cyanamide was tested. The results showed, that in average approximately 5% of the potatoes did show less or no damage from wireworm infestations. The additionally marketable tubers payed off more than three times the additional costs incurred.

Fertiliser meets application technique

On the program of the yearly sales conference was a meeting with the company Horsch in Schwandorf. Horsch is a very innovative company in the sector of tillage and seeding and offers various machines to combine the seeding and fertilising process.

Target of the meeting was to combine the knowledge of both companies and be always aware of the most modern possibilities for application of Perlka®.

Dormex® - new registration on blueberries in Peru

Growing blueberries in the tropics is a big challenge. The plants do not get dormant and the lack of chill leads to an uneven and weak bud break.

Dormex® is the solution for such climatic conditions. This plant growth regulator manufactured by AlzChem was recently registered in Peru for improving the bud break of blueberries. The use of Dormex® is also registered in other major blueberries producing countries like USA and Chile.

Perlka® - when Yield and Quality needs Soil Health

During their field tour mid-April Hyphen Zhang and Dr. Malte Römer travelled through the North of China running sale presentations for Perlka® and meeting growers at their farm sites. Here in China, where Perlka® is also known as Zhuangbobo®, the grower's awareness for soil health and soil quality is in the learning process. Particularly, in cropping areas such as Liaoning province, intensified greenhouse cultivation with small areas -often 1000m2 only- are subject to higher pressure of productivity and quality.
