Effects of Fertiactyl on Frost Damage in Orchards

Frost damage in orchards has been all the talk this year. With many nights dipping below -2°C this spring, growers have started to notice how these frost events have wreaked havok in their fields, observing pistil damage in the flowers. Frost damage looks like brown edging, curled and shrunken leaves, as shown below.

 

Ontario spring can almost always have late, cool evenings well into May. Timac Agro Canada has spent two years looking for a solution to help mitigate the effects of these frost events, and it looks like Fertiactyl is our answer. A customer had used it last season and noticed a big difference in his orchard, so wanted to replicate those results again in 2021. Our Agronomic Technical Consultants (ATC’s) found other growers with similar concerns and put together three trials throughout the province.

The results really speak for themselves. In both trials, multiple blooms were sampled and frost damage was counted, resulting in 14% and 15% reduction in frost damaged buds.

The reports below outline the work done and show more visual differences. Take a look, and if you would like more information feel free to contact our Ontario Business Unit Manager at corinna.ward@ca.timacagro.com. Your email will be passed along to the ATC in your area who would be happy to work with you on improving different parameters in your orchard production.

Grapevines after Frost – what to do?

During dormancy, grapevine can support temperatures as low as -15°C. However, as soon as the vines  bud, they become more vulnerable. If frost occurs, the young shoots dry and die. The final yield is thus highly reduced, but this reduction may not reach 100%. In fact, good weather conditions, with rain and  good temperatures can relaunch the budburst. But the drying of the first bursts will impact this recovery.  As grapevine was already bud bursting, starch and N storage have been consumed by the plant for its  regrowth. Storage of starch and N are not at their maximum anymore for the second bud bursting. This has a direct impact on the energy of the crop and on the yield. Fertilizations and biostimulation must help the plant to sustain the coming flowering period to preserve the forming fruits.

TIMAC AGRO products can help grapevine trees to recover and protect the coming harvest. Click the link below to find out more.

We are very honoured to have received this testimonial from Howard Kuntze.  Howard has been working with our Regional Manager, Leonardo Lopes, throughout the 2020 season to see the effects of Excelis Maxx, Fertileader, Fertiactyl and Duo Maxx on multiple crops.

 

Howard’s multiple trials have shown increases in yield using the Biostimulants and Nitrogen Stabilizer. He did these trials on corn, soybeans, white beans and winter wheat. More information can be obtained by emailing Leo directly at leonardo.lopes@ca.timacagro.com.

 

A big thank you to Howard for his kind words but also for all of the support and help he has shown our team in Perth County.  We all look forward to another successful year working together.

Our Regional Manager in Southwest Ontario, Leonardo Lopes, put together this report on a corn silage trial he did in 2020. The results speak for themselves. He used our nitrogen stabilizer, Excelis Maxx, to improve nutrient availability to the plant as well as stimulating root development. He followed this with 2 applications of our Biostimulants, Fertiactyl and Fertileader, to improve the quality of the final product.

The trial was a success, showing increased roots throughout the growing season, increased yield at harvest, as well as an increase in the overall quality of the silage. For more information on this trial please see the report below.

We are very honoured to have received this testimonial from Ryan and Pete de Gouw. Our Regional Manager, Leonardo Lopes, has worked closely with the de Gouw family in 2020 to test the effects of Excelis Maxx and Biostimulants on corn silage in Parkhill, Ontario.

 

The results were significant and showed increases in both yield but also quality of the silage, increasing the efficiency of milk production/acre.  More information can be obtained by emailing Leo directly at leonardo.lopes@ca.timacagro.com.

 

Thank you to the de Gouw family for the kind words and help this past year. The team looks forward to another great year working along side these progressive growers.

 Thinking Different and Farming Better: Launch of TIMAC AGRO’s activities in Ontario

 

OTTAWA, October 2, 2019 – TIMAC AGRO, a world leader and innovator in plant and animal nutrition announces the launch of its commercial activities in Ontario, a first step towards an ambitious growth plan based on people, innovation and progressive agriculture.

 

An Ontario-based team and research hub devoted to innovation in agriculture

 

Effective today, various individuals with close ties to Ontario’s farming community have joined the ranks of TIMAC AGRO Canada with the objective of helping farmers improve their production, in pursuit of a sustainable and more profitable agriculture.

 

“We are very excited about the quality and diversity of the people who have chosen to join us. We all share the same motivation towards making a positive impact on Ontario agriculture. We seek to develop further relationships with both farmers and ag-retailers” said Simon Jolette-Riopel, General Manager of TIMAC AGRO Canada.

 

Simon Jolette-Riopel adds : “our conviction is that both the environment and farmers’ pockets can be better off by putting forward a reasoned approach towards crop and animal nutrition, backed by the science-based innovations such as the ones TIMAC AGRO has been developing since 1959”.

 

Part of France-based Groupe Roullier (a 8,000 employee company operating in 131 countries), TIMAC AGRO has appointed Ryan Brophy as in-charge of coordinating Eastern Ontario activities and to partner with V6 Agronomy to set-up a research development model across the province and a logistics hub in Eastern Ontario. The purpose will be to demonstrate the efficiency of TIMAC AGRO’s technologies on Canadian soil as well to optimize their response according to Ontario soils and crops.

 

This research hub will work in direct collaboration with Groupe Roullier’s Global Innovation Centre, a 85,000 sq. feet research facility based in St-Malo, France. It will also operate parallel to field demonstrations and university research work TIMAC AGRO has already begun conducting in Western and Eastern Canada.

 

Hub to attract agronomists and farmers who are ready to think different, farm better

 

“This is definitely an exciting time to be a part of agricultural progress in Canada” says Ryan Brophy. “I believe that soil health and new approaches to crop nutrient delivery are essential for sustainability and the bottom line. Partnering with TIMAC AGRO Canada will contribute to the important discussion, partnerships, and work needed around plant nutrition, especially in this era of 4R Nutrient Management.”
