Curly Wurly VineDisease Resistance

Dry fungal biomass of dried mycelium (Biosol)  is not only an organic fertilizer providing nutrients to crop plants and improving humus in the soil, but also a good inducer of resistance against root diseases such as Fusariem wilt.  Its application may have multiple effects for both crop nutrition and crop protection.  It was recently reported that dried mycelium applied to the soil protected corn plants against fusarium.

Nematode Control

Dry fungal biomass of dried mycelium (Biosol) seems to provide partial control of nematodes under natural conditions.  Partial control may gradually build up to almost complete control of the nematode in the following season if treatments of dry mycelium are repeated.  Such a strategy may well fit in with nematode control in Organic farming.

Vineyard Viticulture experiments:

1988-1994: Viticulture experiments with Biosol, Prof. Solar, Institute of soil science and geological engineering, the University of Soil Cultivation, Vienna
1995-1998 Examinations of the Medium-term Effect of Two Humus Fertilizers on Soil and Vine, School of Vine Growing, Wiener StraBe 74 3400 Klosterneuburg / Austria
1998-2001 McGourty, Viticulture and Plant Science Advisor, UCCE Mendocino and Lake Counties, January 2002

During the ten years of these experiments, Biosol was proven to increase sugar yields in the grapes. The average yearly sugar yield during these experiments was approximately a 13% increase.

Areas of the world where Biosol is currently used in Viticulture:

  • Burgund, France
  • South Tyrol, Italy
  • Lower Austria, Austria
  • Nordrhein-Westfahlen, Germany
  • Eger, Tokaj, Palaton, Hungary
