Sample text

Mixtures of water-soluble or liquid nitrogen, phosphate and high strength potassium fertilizers, single or in various ratios, are employed in the practice and are also added to by secondary elements (Mg, Fe) and microelements (B, Zn). Such solutions, in strengths defined by fertilization plans, are conveyed in the watering system, using fertinjectors that work using the water flow to aspirate, by the Venturi principle, dilute and carry the nourishing solution (Fig. 7) [32]. Figure 7: Fertinjector.

Cutting stimulates metabolism and growth and reduces the cold resistance of the plants favoring diseases from fungi or other parasites. However, pruning should not be delayed until after full bloom, since it will remove tissues towards which nutrients and carbon reserves have already been remobilized, resulting in a net loss for the plant. The time of pruning also influences the plant response. Removing shoots at bud break results in a much more vigorous growth of the remaining shoots than if the same operation were performed at the beginning of the summer.

Control: Prevention is the main control method for this disease. Planting cultivars with low susceptibility [121, 122], sterilisation of pruning tools and of wounds 54 Agricultural and Food Biotechnology of Olea europaea and Stone Fruit Toscano et al. after pruning or after unfavourable climatic events are important for reducing the incidence of the disease. Particular attention should be paid to the selection of propagation material and in the disinfection of tools during propagation. Conventional control against this disease is not easy, because antibacterial products are prohibited in several countries in agricultural practices and because compounds with antibacterial activity are hardly translocated to the plant.
