The lack of adequate rainfall last year in the coffee-growing region of southern/MG, Brazil, “Sul de Minas – Controlled Denomination of Origin” meant that many crops were under severe drought stress.
Mr José Maria, a coffee producer in this region, unfortunately faced these harsh drought conditions, which brought on acute nutritional problems and the manifestation of some diseases during crop formation. Fearing the loss of the coffee crop, a treatment of OMEX Bio 20 was recommended by an OMEX technical advisor to promote the stimulation of rooting and vegetative development. The proven all in one combination of nutrients and a powerful biostimulant is excellent at maintaining coffee plant growth during periods of abiotic stress. An OMEX Zynergy treatment in conjunction with a fungicide was also recommended to enhance tolerance to drought stress and prevent new pathogens in the crop.
To the great satisfaction of Mr Jose Maria, the Bio 20 and Zynergy treatment positively affected his coffee crop development, withstanding the severe drought conditions.
