How does CAOLINO NATURAL WHITE work?
CAOLINO NATURAL WHITE has an exclusively physical action, because it covers the leaves and fruits, creating an inhospitable environment for insects and fungi. In addition, the white color reflects solar radiation, lowering the temperature of leaves and fruits: the dangers of burns of the fruits and dehydration that occurs at the leaf level is significantly reduced.
When should CAOLINO NATURAL WHITE be applied?
Especially during the hottest and sunniest season (from mid-June to the end of August), but it is also good, in smaller quantities, in the spring months, to inhibit the attack of insects.
Is it effective against the olive fruit fly?
Yes, it is very effective in PREVENTING oviposition inside the drupes: kaolin acts exclusively physically, creating a film that covers leaves and fruits. Therefore, the olive is hidden and protected from the insect. The fly is also bothered by the presence of dust, both from a respiratory and tactile point of view.
On which crops can I apply CAOLINO NATURAL WHITE?
It is possible to apply CAOLINO NATURAL WHITE on any type of crop: olive tree, vine, fruit growing, horticulture. It was found to be particularly effective in preventing olive fruit fly attacks, as the dust creates a highly inhospitable environment for the deposition of eggs inside the drupe and therefore the development of the disease.
What is CAOLINO NATURAL WHITE?
CAOLINO NATURAL WHITE is a micronized rock powder, obtained 100% from kaolin, used in agriculture as a corroborant. It is a substance of completely natural origin that improves the resistance of plants to biotic and abiotic stresses. It is a permitted product in organic farming.
How much CAOLINO NATURAL WHITE should I apply?
We recommend applying at 3 or 5%, therefore 3 or 5 kg per 100 litres of water. We recommend application every 28 days or so. However, it is important to consider the weather conditions: if abundant precipitation occurs ( > 40 / 50mm), the treatment must be repeated after each precipitation. Remember that the plant must always appear completely white.
What benefits does CAOLINO NATURAL WHITE bring?
Its white colour, together with its low cost, make it ideal for countless uses in organic and conventional agriculture. Chemically inert, it constitutes a form of prevention of undoubted effectiveness against numerous agronomic problems in total respect for the environment. Protects from thermal and water stress. It repels insects (as the olive fruit fly). Reduces leaf burns. It improves the quality of the fruits, grapes and wine. It increases the polyphenol content and the quality of the fruit. It is a substance of natural origin that improves the resistance of plants to biotic and abiotic stresses.
How should CAOLINO NATURAL WHITE be applied?
As a highly micronized powder (50% of the particles is <2 microns), it is possible to create a suspension in water and distribute it on plants even with the same spears used for green copper. Being highly micronized, it does not cause any problem of suspension or clogging of the atomizer.
