glutabion

Biostimulant of budding in fruit trees, berries and grapes.

It triggers the metabolic processes to obtain the necessary energy to break dormancy and promote budding in deciduous fruit trees and vine, so that uniform and early flowering, better fruiting and greater accumulation of sugar are achieved.

Effects, dosage and results of Glutabion

glutabion in table grapes

Dose

  • Cold winters (high number of chill hours): 25 kg/ha, 15–10 DBB (days before budding)
  • Warm winters (few accumulated chill hours): 30–40 kg/ha, distributed in two applications of 15–20 kg/ha, the first one at 25 DBB and the second one 7–10 days later.

Objective

  • Homogeneous budding, flowering and harvest times.
  • Increase budding.
  • Improve colour at harvest.
  • Reduce the number of passes at harvest.

Treatments with glutabion lead to more abundant harvests, higher percentages of first-quality grapes and to a lower amount of rotten bunches.

The use of glutabion gives rise to many medium-sized bunches, with a medium/high number of high-quality grapes.

Applications short before budding lead to greater bud development.

As regards fertility indices, the application of the product at an average of 15 days before budding gives rise to higher results in fertility indices, very similar to those achieved with hydrogen cyanamide.

glutabion in fruit trees

Stone-fruit trees (peaches and nectarines)

Greater homogeneity regarding budding, harvest, sizes and colouring.

  • Early varieties: 1.5 % , one application 15-20 days before budding
  • Late varieties: 1.5 %, one application 20-25 days before budding

Pip-fruit trees (apple and pear trees) and kiwifruit

Homogeneity at flowering, greater final yield with larger sizes.

  • One application at 2 %, 20 days before budding.

Cherry, doughnut peach and apricot trees

Homogeneity at flowering, greater final yield with larger sizes.

  • Dose of 1 %, carrying out one application 10 days before budding and another one 7-10 days afterwards.

Berries

  • Dose of 1%, carrying out one application 90 days before the start of the harvest and another one 7 days afterwards.
