Olio Vegetale is a natural product based on soybean extract. The production process uses the patented Supercote® technology, which involves the use of technologically advanced physical processes and supplementing the product with specialized formulatory additives. Olio Vegetale streamlines the process of plant transpiration, thus regulating the water management of plants.
Based on many years of research, it has been proven that vegetable oils are effective against powdery mildew, scab, gray mold, spider mites, aphids, thrips and whitefly. In the case of pests, the action is typically mechanical by covering insects and mites with a viscous coating, which in effect may prevent breathing, movement and feeding, thus causing the disappearance of vital processes. As for fungal diseases, vegetable oils act rather fungistatically, inhibiting their development and causing dehydration, deformation of mycelium cells and fungal spores.
The advantage of such preparations, unlike paraffin and mineral oils, is undoubtedly the lack of any harmfulness for plants and avoiding the risk of plant damage at any stage of development. They are also completely safe for both humans and the environment.
Olio Vegetale is a great addition to commonly used agrochemicals, because it improves their activity and intensifies the obtained effects. In addition, the possibility of using Olio Vegetale as an additive allows to effectively reduce the phytotoxicity of mixtures. It is a perfect complement to a conventional protection program as an accompanying preparation or substitute in anti-resistance strategies, and due to its natural origin and safe formulation, use is possible just before harvest.
