Sulphur is an ecological product. Its main applications include those related to agriculture, due to its activity as fungicide, acaricide, nutritional product and soil conditioner, as well as those related to industry, such as tyres, the rubber industry, animal feed and pyrotechnics.
In a 2,800-year-old document, Homer describes the typical use of sulphur for pest control. The product of its combustion has been for many years the disinfectant used in closed spaces (ship holds, warehouses, barrels to age wine....).READ MORE
However, its specific use for controlling oidium (Uncinula necator) is not described until the early 19th century, when an English gardener (Forsyth,1802) recommended its use for the control of oidium in fruit orchards. This composition with sulphur to remedy the diseases of these plants is found in the Treaty on the cultivation of fruit trees.
In the middle of the 19th century, this disease spread to the rest of Europe, where it caused a sharp drop in wine production and quality. Its development and spread require humid and warm weather, between 20º and 27º and can only be controlled by the preventive application of SULPHUR, a remedy that was advocated by (Berkeley, 1846) in England, as well as (Duchatel, 1848) in France.
Since then, it has been the universally used product for the control of oidium in general, being used massively even today and being one of the most effective fungicides.
It acts when it comes in direct contact with spores and other fungal tissues, preventing and inhibiting their germination and growth.
It acts as a nutrient for plants, improving the quality of the substrate and stimulating vegetative growth.
It works by improving the physical, chemical and biological properties of the soil or substrate so that plants can develop under better conditions.
Biostimulants increase the efficiency of the plant metabolism, improving both yield and quality of the harvest.
