Results of Albit application on olive trees you may see in the film made by
our foreign dealers
Although olive trees are cultivated not in all regions, Albit
application on olive trees is a good illustration of anti-stress properties
of the product, because these trees almost always are in drought
conditions. When using of Albit, plants consume water more economically.
As a result, yield of olive trees is up to 3 times over control.
For example, in Spain (Benameji, Andalusia) yield increase of olives in variant
with Albit was 58 kg per tree (+200% to control). Below you can see the photo
of harvest of this trial (Fig. 1).

land. Control (standard system of protection without Albit), 2 and 3-fold
sprayings with Albit (cooperative Olivarera Nuestra Senora de Gracia SCA,
Benameji, Andalusia, Spain, 2017)

Another important property of Albit is clearly manifested on
olive trees – accelerating of plant development (Fig. 2).
Productive olive trees grow up already on the 3rd year but not on the 4th-5th
year as usually.

for accelerating their development (Malaga, Spain, 2017)
The same property of Albit leads to the fact that yield of cereals,
maize, soybean, sunflower and other field crops ripens by 3-14 days
earlier, which allows you to start harvesting earlier.

Albit has been successfully used for 5 years on olive trees in
Greece, Turkey and Spain. The Spanish dealer positions Albit as “the
biological product ¹ 1 on the effectiveness in Europe” (Fig. 3).

Albit is exclusive Russian product used by Spanish farmers. Therefore,
they simply name Albit “el Producto Ruso” (the Russian product).
Overall, based on the conducted field trials, the optimal method of Albit application
on olive trees is following:
method, processing time, application rate of working solution
of growth and development, formation of additional sprouts and accelerated
annual regrowth (especially young olive trees); increase the number of
flowers and seed-buds, increase of yield, improvement of crop quality
(olives with a standard size and quality, oil content); increased resistance
to drought, high temperature and disease infestation (Cycloconium
oleaginum, Spilocaea oleaginea etc.)
L of working solution (125-500 mL/ha)
first – at the stages of budding/beginning of blossoming, second – at
the end of blossoming stage (10-14 days after first spraying), third
– at the stage of olive pit forming (15-20 days after second spraying),
forth – at the stage “forming of olive density (oiliness)” 2-3 weeks
later. Also, application may be used with standard recommended treatments
with insecticides and other pesticides with 2-3 week intervals. Terms,
application rate of working solution – according to the recommendations
for pesticides (500-2000 L/hà).
(fruit-bearing) olive trees;

the stage of economic
It is more
efficient to apply Albit as antidote in tank mix with pesticides. Albit
is recommended for irrigated plantations and also in rain fed conditions.
Efficacy of Albit increases in more arid conditions. After Albit treatment
accelerated development of young olive trees is observed: on third year
(instead of forth-fifth year) olive trees may be used for economic purposes.
For accelerating of development and annual growth, increased amount of
treatments per season of young olive trees is used
