ORTIMAX, your biocontrol tool against the aphid plague in the apple tree.

The apple aphid is a common pest in apple orchards and can cause significant damage to trees and their fruit production. These sap-sucking insects feed on the leaves and young stems of the tree and, if left unchecked, can weaken the tree and reduce the quantity and quality of the fruit.

Apple aphids are small, soft-bodied insects and can vary in color from light green to dark brown or black. They reproduce quickly and can form colonies in large numbers in a short amount of time. Additionally, apple aphids can transmit diseases through their saliva, which can cause diseases and deformations in the leaves and fruit of the tree.

There are several ways to control and prevent apple aphid infestations in apple trees. One of the most effective measures is the introduction of natural predators such as ladybugs and parasitic wasps. These insects feed on the apple aphids and help to reduce their population.

Specific insecticides can also be used to control apple aphids, but it is important to note that some of these products can be harmful to other beneficial insects and animals. Therefore, it is recommended to carefully read the product instructions and follow appropriate safety guidelines.

Additionally, it is important to maintain a clean and well-cared-for orchard by regularly removing dead and diseased leaves and branches. This helps to reduce the number of places where apple aphids can hide and reproduce.

In summary, the apple aphid is a common pest in apple orchards, but there are effective measures to prevent and control their infestation. By introducing natural predators, using specific insecticides, and maintaining a clean and well-cared-for orchard, it is possible to prevent these sap-sucking insects from damaging trees and their fruit production.

In this sense, the use of other agricultural biocontrol products such as ORTIMAX is recommended, which are safe for the user and respectful of the environment and auxiliary fauna.

ORTIMAX present a triple insecticide action:

· Coumarins stop the pest from feeding
· Formic acid creates a corrosive environment that inhibits the respiratory mitochondrial chain of insects
· Benzoic acids and other volatile acids have a strong repellent action

ORTIMAX present also a fungicide action against Alternaria, Botrytis, Mildew, and others due to its Silice content



   • Reinforce the natural defense mechanism of plants
   • Acts as a fertilizer or as a plant stimulant
   • Rich content of secondary elements such as S, Si and Mg and other microelements such as Fe and Mn
   • Better caliber and quality of fruits
   • Farmer could reduce plant protection products usage
   • 100% organic and zero residue product
   • Safe for the user and environmentally friendly
   • Its inclusion in resistance management strategies is very useful


In a trial carried out by ADLER on a Golden Delicius variety apple crop in Girona, the efficacy of ORTIMAX in controlling the apple aphid plague was verified.


   • Apple trees treated with Ortimax present an 11% more yield regarding the control
   • Plants treated with Ortimax were significantly greener and healthier. Also, the apples had better caliber and quality
   • Six treatments with Ortimax helped keep the pest under control without needing any other plant protection product. Even the last application was expendable
   • Apple trees of the control treatment needed two treatments with Diazinon
   • Ortimax respects the auxiliary fauna. This issue explains why the growth of the pest in the case of Ortimax-treated plants is less aggressive

Fertilization during the flowering season in agriculture

Flowering is a brief period, since most of the flowers wither very quickly. However, it is a fundamental process in agriculture. Since the processes of pollination, fertilization, seed formation and initial fruit growth occur in it, which will define to a significant extent the quantity and quality of the final harvest.

Flowering is essential, especially in certain crops such as fruit and horticultural crops. Since the main commercial value of these crops are the fruits.

During flowering the following stages usually happen:

– Possible elongation of the floral peduncle

– Opening of the corolla followed by the appearance of stamens and pistils

– Dehiscence of the anthers and dispersion of pollen

– Receptivity of the pistils with frequent appearance of stigmatic fluid

The time of flowering depends mainly on the species, being able to develop earlier or late depending on the cultivated variety. Normally it is carried out between the spring and autumn seasons. Being the so-called long-day plants those that bloom between spring and early summer and the short-day plants the ones that bloom in the autumn.

In this way, the flowering process is closely related to four main factors:

– Hormonal activity

– Environmental conditions (light and temperature)

– Water availability

– Balanced nutrition

Regarding nutrition, flowering crops need to keep constant the level of nitrogen, and receive phosphorus and potassium. But not in excessive amounts, since excess nutrients can lead to a nutritional imbalance, decreasing the positive effect.

It is also important to provide micronutrients such as boron that participates in pollination, flowering and seed production and is of great importance for the hormonal regulation of plants. As well as the Molybdenum, whose lack in the crop produces a reduction of the growth of the plant and the flowering.

In addition, this process requires a lot of energy mostly for the production of amino acids involved in reproduction.

In this sense, ADLER AGRO has developed a specific nutritive solution for this delicate and transcendental phase of the crop. FLOWER is a biostimulant based on amino acids and micronutrients that improves the nutritional state of the plant, stimulating physiological functions that occur at this moment of the cycle.

Its high content of complexed boron and molybdenum ensures an easy assimilation of these nutrients. Thus increasing viability of pollen, flower fertility and promoting fruit setting.

Thanks to its high content of amino acids, FLOWER allows the plant to overcome adverse weather conditions or stress that especially affect pollination and fruit, increasing the germinative power of the pollen grain and the elongation of the pollen tube.

The ADLER AGRO formula guarantees an increase of the flowering and the setting, and therefore its production.
