The aim of treatment was the prevention and control of soil borne diseases Fusarium oxysporum and Botrytis, as well as increase the yield of fruits.
Two applications were made with a mix of both experimental products during 4-5 leave stage in a time interval of 15 days. Each application was made with a rate of 1 kg Sanbio EPSOMIT in 500 liters of water per hectar in foliar spray and 1 kg Sanbio PLANTA in 500 liters of water onto ground. As a result the fruit yield has increased at 2.3 t/ha, resp. +23.4%.
Almost no weeds were found on the treated plot. The plants on the treated plot were healty and well-developed with absence of Fusarium wilt or Botrytis.
