The heat wave that ravages the Iberian Peninsula, planting an intense summer ahead of time, is the type of changing and uncontrolled climate that can greatly affect some types of crops. And it is in these cases that the powdery mildew grows on the vine. We had already talked about Oidio in the past, but what is it about?
The mildew affects the vineyards
The vineyard is a disease caused by a fungus that winter in the buds, in the branches, in the leaves, and even in the bark of the strains. The oídio is also known by other names according to the geographical region, such as ash, ash, cendrada, cendrosa, dust, dust, sendreta, malura, blanqueta, rust, oidi, oidium …
With the action driven by an ozone generator, we achieve the most effective method to combat this fungus. That will be especially effective in abnormally warm months, which is when the powdery mildew grows stronger, making it a reliable solution to protect these types of crops.
- The powdery mildew is prepared to attack any green part of the vine.
On the leaves: The symptoms can appear both on the underside and on the beam, in both cases an ashen white dust is usually observed, which can be limited to some areas, or even occupy the entire surface of the leaf.
- Outbreaks and branches: the symptoms are manifested by diffuse spots of dark green color, which are growing and that go to darker tones as the vegetation progresses, which, as the vineyard lignification increases, can appear blackish.
- Clusters: at first it is detected by a certain dust that covers all the grain. In fact, the most important damages are in the clusters, since the mildew of the powdery mildew stops the growth of the skin of the grain, reason why it is usually caused to crack, producing direct damages in the quantity and quality of the harvest .
