Weeding of cereal crops: Ilsa's Splinter New helps against stress in this delicate phase


Post-emergence weeding represents a particularly delicate moment for the cultivation of cereal crops. The weeding, although it is selective towards the infesting plants, has however a hostile effect on the plant, slowing down its development momentarily or creating a stressful situation that can negatively affect production.

To improve its effectiveness and, at the same time, promote a quick recovery from stress due to chemical treatment, Ilsa recommends Splinter New, a nutritional specialty based on natural amino acids, which has a positive action on the plant metabolism. It is a liquid organic fertilizer, indicated for foliar treatments on plants, subject to chemical, environmental, or physiological stress.

The organic component provides organic nitrogen in a highly assimilable form, which can improve the seedlings’ physiological and productive processes.

Moreover, the presence in its organic matrix of specific amino acids (Hydroxyproline, Proline, Glutamic Acid, Glycine, etc.) obtained by the enzymatic hydrolysis process has a positive effect on protein synthesis favouring the recovery of the plant’s normal physiological and metabolic functions. Splinter New is compatible with all the phytosanitary products on the market, used in association with post-emergency treatments at a dose of 2-3 (Kg/ha). It can optimize the time of action of the mixed active substances, improving the effectiveness of the herbicides. It can also increase the wet surface of the sprayed drops, slowing down the desiccation while favouring rehydration. It contributes to a rapid overcoming of the “stunted” phase, post-weeding, or due to cold and environmental stress.

Thanks to its amino acid component, it can also favour the processes of cell division and distension, accelerating the raising phase, and increasing the plant’s tolerance to abiotic stress. Finally, it helps chlorophyll photosynthesis with the increase of the leaf surface and of the productive potential of the plant.
