World Soil Day

Today is World Soil Day ✨

Today we want to repeat the reasons why we must ensure a healthy soil with a #sustainable management of its resources.

➡️ Greater biodiversity: Soils host a quarter of our planet’s biodiversity.
➡️ Increased Food security: 95% of food is produced in our soils.
➡️ Cleaner water: Soils are key to a supply of clean water.
➡️ More medicines: most medicines originated from microorganisms in the soil.
➡️ Fewer greenhouse gases: Soils help to combat and adapt to climate change.
➡️ Better livelihoods: Healthy soils can ensure food security, provide better livelihoods and reduce forced migration.

At IQV, we are committed to products that protect crops and respect the environment and consequently the soil.

Cuidados de vid contra temperaturas bajas

Empieza el frío y con él, el momento de preparar la vid contra las heladas y temperaturas bajas!❄️ Uno de los cuidados más conocidos y efectivos es la poda de invierno, necesaria una vez pasada la vendimia cuando la savia desaparece, las ramas comienzan a secarse y las hojas terminan por caer?

Con tal de proteger al viñedo es necesario realizar tratamientos de prevención fitosanitarios que protejan la salud de la vid una vez realizada la poda. En IQV aconsejamos utilizar productos cúpricos para eliminar las esporas y evitar la aparición de enfermedades??

IQV – Los suelos

Los suelos hacen cosas increíbles de las que a veces no somos conscientes✨Se necesitan más de 1000 años para que se cree un centímetro de suelo, por lo que no es considerado un recurso renovable. Son muchas las razones por las que debemos cuidarlo, hace unos años la FAO compartió algunas de ellas:

➡️ Más diversidad: los suelos albergan la cuarta parte de la biodiversidad de nuestro planeta
➡️ Mayor seguridad alimentaria: el 95% de los alimentos se produce en nuestros suelos
➡️ Agua más limpia: los suelos son clave para el suministro de agua limpia
➡️ Más medicina: la mayoría de medicinas, antibióticos más conocidos se originaron a partir de microorganismos del suelo
➡️ Menos gases efecto invernadero: los suelos ayudan a combatir y adaptarse al cambio climático
➡️ Mejores medios de subsistencia: proporcionan mejores medios de subsistencia y reducen la migración forzada

En IQV, apostamos por productos que protejan a los cultivos y sean respetuosos con el medio ambiente y consecuentemente con el suelo

Paulo Mendes

Paulo Mendes is an agricultural engineer working and developing sustainable agriculture in Vinho Verde sub-region for more than 20 years. He explained us that at Anselmo Vinhos Lda they try to use the less number of products as they can and our copper fungicide products are one of those?

They specially use VITRA in vine final growth stage due to it’s excellent properties. ➡️High quality copper hydroxide made from pure raw materials.
➡️Vitra40WG guarantees safety to the farmer while is applying the product
➡️The product disolves well and does not produce foam, obtaining an homogeneus mixture.

Organic farming in Spain - iqv matholding group

Organic farming in Spain

Did you know that Spain is currently one of the countries with most hectares dedicated to organic farming? ? Currently organic farming in the EU represents between 8 and 9% of the total agricultural surface area. One of the objectives proposed by the European Commission is to ensure that by 2030, 25% of the EU’s agricultural land is dedicated to organic farming.

At IQV we believe it is important that sustainable agriculture must find a healthy balance between ecological responsibility and our phytosanitary products. That is why our processes and products respect the environment and optimize the use of natural resources?✨

World Agriculture Day - iqv matholding group


?Today we want to talk to you about biopesticides, natural substances to control plagues and diseases of crops. Compared with chemical synthesis products, they present very notable advantages:

➡️ They have lower toxicity.
➡️ They induce resistance due to their multiple mode of action.
➡️ They don’t generate residues in food.
➡️ They don’t require setting maximum residue limits or safety periods for cultivation.
➡️ They also act as biostimulants for the plant.

If today we are talking about a boom in biopesticides, it’s because these advantages provide enormous value in the current social and legislative framework in which the use of sustainable solutions is favored. Biopesticides also contribute to achieving the objectives of the European Green Deal and it’s no coincidence that their use is increasing among farmers around the world.

The olive tree, a symbol of the Mediterranean - iqv matholding group

The olive tree, a symbol of the Mediterranean

Olea Europeae is an ancient crop distributed mainly along the Mediterranean arc and known worldwide for the organoleptic properties of its fruit and derivatives. That is why year after year it has become more technical and together with it the need to control the diseases and pests that affect it.

Speaking of diseases, the Olive leaf spot is the one that generates the greatest harvest losses and in which our copper products present an excellent efficiency. With our agricultural vocation and thanks to close contact with producers and actors in the sector, we have managed to improve and provide the most effective solutions for the olive grove with the greatest sustainability and respect.

Recently, on the 1st of March 2019, our Laboratory in Valencia (Spain) has obtained a Good Laboratory Practice certification (GLP) by ENAC, the Spanish National Accreditation Body.

In compliance with the principles of GLP certification by the European Union and OCDE, nowadays, we are able to issue fitosanitary products characterization studies and analysis certifications (stage one: Copper Salts). These are strictly necessary for the purpose of filling the registration with the relevant official bodies.

Thanks to the GLP certification obtained and to the renovated and large laboratory facilities that we carried out in 2016, we have strengthened our commitment to accuracy and reliability in order to achieve continuous improvement in all our activities, improving services such as: toll manufacturing, logistic platform and laboratory (GLP certifications).

nanocu bactericida nanopartículas de cobre

IDI-20151243 « Nanopartículas de cobre y otros metales como nuevos fungicidas y bactericidas en protección vegetal – NANOCU »

El proyecto NANOCU tiene como objetivo principal la obtención de formulados a base de nanopartículas de cobre como nuevas aportaciones a la protección vegetal, concretamente para el control de enfermedades causadas por hongos y bacterias. La hipótesis es obtener formulados con cantidades más reducidas de cobre, baja fitotoxicidad y menor impacto ambiental, pero manteniendo una eficacia equivalente a los existentes en la actualidad.

A través del presente proyecto se desarrollan nanopartículas de diferente tamaño y composición, y se evalúa su actividad antimicrobiana y su capacidad de inducción de defensas o promoción del crecimiento en las plantas.

Los resultados obtenidos hasta el momento indican que varios prototipos de nanopartículas obtenidos mantienen las mismas propiedades que el cobre metal convencional (diversas sales), pero presentan una elevada actividad antimicrobiana, tanto in vitro como en plantas, contra un amplio rango de bacterias y hongos fitopatógenos, a la vez que se mejoran los aspectos de fitotoxicidad e impacto ambiental.

El proyecto se ha liderado des de las instalaciones de IQV en Cheste y el proyecto ha tenido una duración de 33 meses. El presupuesto aprobado por el proyecto fue de 715.063,00€. El proyecto ha sido cofinanciado por el Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER) a través del Programa Operativo Pluriregional de Crecimiento Inteligente 2014-2020 y por el Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial (CDTI), apoyado por el Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad (CDTI IDI-20151243).
