NEW BIOSTIMULANT Boron & Amino acids: FORTACELL

Current year 2018 is being a great and very important season for MAFA Vegetal Ecobiology, due to we are seeing how the efforts and time invested in research and development is bringing excellent results.

Thanks to our agricultural engineers team and technical laboratory staff, added to the different test made into our particular crops to optimize any new formulation, we have developed new successful compounds in several categories.

That is the case of our new product placed into BIOSTIMULANTS section, a complex calcium-calcium acetate solution – which we have called FortaCell

Fortacell is a fertilizer based on calcium acetate with Boron and Amino Acids

It is a fertilizer that provides a dose of Calcium irreplaceable by other essential elements.

With the action of this element the organic compounds and the mineral salts are retained by the membranes in the most convenient way

It is also fundamental for the development of the roots, in which it has a triple function:

  1. Cell multiplication
  2. Cell growth
  3. Neutralization of hydrogenations

roots development

It contains Boron, which is very important since it is essential to mobilize the hydrocarbon reserves of the leafs towards the flowering points. This type of complex is able to traverse semipermeable cell membranes and where such a micro-nutrient is not present into the cells, sugars are immobilized in the plant.

Boron contribution comes from the boron-ethanolamine complex which gives to the compound a greater solubility.

It is a product that can be used both in foliar applications and in fertigation, also suitable for organic farming

It is especially recommended for:

  • Fruit trees of bone and nugget
  • Citrus
  • Vineyards and table grape
  • Horticultural

What is Biotechnology? Definition and its application

Nowadays, biotechnology concept is an increasingly popular term due to it is a scientific field with multiple applications in different sectors.

Benefits and uses resulting from the research are found daily in the markets in the form of improved harvests, in pharmaceutical industry and in the fight against climate change among other varied utilities.

DEFINITION OF BIOTECHNOLOGY

If we stick to the internationally accepted definition:

Biotechnology refers to any technological application that uses biological systems and living organisms or their derivatives for the creation or modification of products or processes for specific uses (Convention on Biological Diversity, Article 2. Use of Terms, United Nations, 1992).

Biotechnology is understood as a multidisciplinary area by employing both biology, chemistry together with various processes to provide different uses in areas such as agriculture, pharmacy, food science and health.

Thanks to this and the result of research we get healthier foods, improved medicines, more resistant or less polluting materials, more productive crops, renewable energy sources and even systems to eliminate pollution are obtained.

In other words, biotechnology consists precisely in the use of the biological machinery for the benefit of the human being. Possibly, the first person who has evidence in using this term was the agricultural engineer Karl Ereky of Hungarian nationality, in 1917.

APPLICATIONS OF BIOTECHNOLOGY

There are multiple applications for this area of science but the main ones are:

  • Agricultural: for the development of crops and improvement of crops and food, resistance to pests and diseases.
  • Environmental: with applications for biofeedback, resistance to contamination, conservation of species.
  • Biosanitary: for the obtaining of drugs, genetic therapies, obtaining vaccines, monoclonal antibodies and cellular therapies are some examples.
  • Industrial processes: for cosmetics, food, chemical substances, fuels.

TYPES OF BIOTECHNOLOGY

Biotechnology can be classified into different types according to its applications:

  • Red biotechnology: that refers to the use of bio-organisms in medicine, such as the creation of antibiotics, the cultivation of bacteria ..
  • White biotechnology: also known as industrial biotechnology, since it is applied to industrial processes.
  • Green biotechnology: that applied to agricultural processes, for example, obtaining solutions to control diseases and improve crops.
  • Blue biotechnology: in charge of biotechnological processes related to the sea.
  • Gray biotechnology: focused exclusively on finding solutions to environmental problems such as climate change.

FUTURE OF BIOTECHNOLOGY IN THE AGRICULTURAL SECTOR

The research that is carried out in the biotechnological area of crops, focuses on the study of nature and the perfect balance that each plant, microorganism or insects.

Biotechnology applied to agriculture is a tool that uses living organisms or substances obtained from these organisms to create or modify a product for practical purposes.

Through biotechnology applied to agriculture, biopesticides are obtained based on biological origin, where organisms or substances are synthesized. With a high degree of effectiveness, they only attack pests and do not affect other organisms that are beneficial or the fruits of crops.

In the case of biofertilizers, are products made from a biological process with the aim of providing nutrients to crops without altering natural conditions and maintaining a natural microbiological environment.

This is the premise of the whole catalog of MAFA Vegetal Ecobiology. We work with the objective of helping farmers, take care of the health of the field and make crops more profitable and healthy.

LEADING ECOLOGICAL CERTIFICATIONS IN EUROPE

The importance of Ecological Certifications and Zero Waste Products is becoming increasingly relevant and interesting both in the final consumer and companies.

Concretely in Europe, the organic sector is developing speedily. On average over the past decade, the area of organic farmland in the EU increased by half a million hectares, and it is happening every year. There are now over 186.000 farms cultivating organic farmland across the EU.

Also has been increased the consumption of organic products, which has experienced a notable rise in recent years, given the growing awareness of consumers, who demand products of the highest quality obtained under production systems that respect the environment.

Ecological Production is a set of agricultural techniques that exclude the use, in agriculture and livestock, of certain synthetic chemicals in order to conserve the environment, maintain or increase soil fertility and provide food with all its natural properties . In addition to promoting rural and environmental development, it is possible to offer healthy food to the final consumer.

In Ecological Production, only fertilizers, soil conditioners and nutrients included in the regulations established in this regard at European level are used, and the exclusion of certain active substances is analyzed by the certifying bodies before granting the corresponding certification seals.

Farmer and other intermediary companies, have a great confusion when using fertilizers or phytosanitary regarding the type of products and allowed to meet the requirements of Organic Certifications. That is the reason why, bodies as CAAE and SHC between other Brand Certification of Supplies, are key for manufacturers to choose among the available supplies in the market.

To ensure the consumer confidence, companies such as MAFA Vegetal Ecobiology, works to meet these quality standards. Proof of that is the different seals of ecological certification into European level we have as:

  • SHC → SOCIEDAD HISPANA DE CERTIFICACIÓN S.A.

  • CAAE → INPUTS FOR ECOLOGICAL PRODUCTION (European Standard -Reg (CE) 834/2007)

Both certification seals are based on the European Regulations that establish the requirements to be met for agricultural production based on the respect of natural cycles, maintenance of biodiversity, obtaining agricultural products without the use of chemical synthesis products.
