Drought stress

23 April 2020

The dryness in certain regions is causing extreme problems again this spring. At this year’s P/K Symposium, Dr Novotny told us what we can do about it. We have two solutions:

1. Overcoming drought stress
  • 200 l water
  • 150 g citric acid (for 200 l water)
  • 1 l AKRA Plus 9
  • 3 l AKRA MSB if necessary – to stunt growth from GS35
  • 1 l AKRA Sulpur+ if necessary (fungal infection)
2. Induce dormancy for 14 days
(in long periods of drought)
  • 200 l water
  • 150 g citric acid (for 200 l water)
  • 1 l AKRA Plus 9
Do not mix with any other treatment! Do not use N!
Quantities given are per hectare. Crops still need to be green when applying. Apply in the morning!
Can provide up to 14 days longer protection against drought.

Picture description:
  • 2 years ago half of the field was treated with AKRA straw R+P+K (2016 after WG)
  • No treatment (Grey straw - blackleg disease)
    Harvest 2018 with WG in comparison 1.6 t/ha less yield!!

Blackleg 2018

In agriculture, the symptoms of blackleg are often not recognised and are confused with the effects of pre-summer dryness (shrivelled grains). Damage symptoms: after harvesting, the cereal stubble can easily be removed from the soil. Blackleg is the most widespread crop disease worldwide - no fungicides are effective.

Wheat Yellow Mosaic Virus on the rise!-

Wheat Yellow Mosaic Virus on the rise!

April 16, 2018

Wheat yellow mosaic virus (WYMV) is breaking out severely among wheat crops in Hungary (see picture from April 16), sometimes resulting in total infestation, and isolated cases have also been seen in Austria. We can expect the disease to break out here within a few days/weeks. It is, therefore, important to monitor crops closely today.
Combatting the disease directly is impossible. However, it is noticeable that crops treated with the AKRA formula are significantly less affected, whereas affected wheat can be helped with an anti-stress treatment:
All data per hectare. Remember to adjust the spray mixture to pH 5.5! This treatment can be combined with a fungicide treatment according to our instructions for use.
