Is often said that big things come in small packages. This may very well be said about Tradecorp´s new generation Biostimulant that was born in the Brazil Agroindustry and that is changing the way crop Biostimulants are viewed worldwide. Quikon indeed comes in a small package, yet 50ml /ac per application is more than enough to effectively fully biostimulate an acre of Table Grapes, enhancing both yield and quality. Bunch weight – increased by 28%, yield increases of up to an astonishing 20%… growers may look at the size of the Quikon bottle and be surprised. How is this possible? What is Quikon, the new ReEvolution in agriculture?

In this short article we will explain what the future holds for agricultural Biostimulantion, and what role new generation Biostimulants like Tradecorp´s Quikon will play in it.

 

Growers can help guarantee a good harvest, with produce of high quality via Quikon’s Biostimulation at a key development stage in the table grape crop, i.e. 2 – 3 applications at the fruit swell and development stage (BBCH 69 to 81, 100% cap fall, berries 10mm, veraison). Yield increases in grape have already been clearly demonstrated using Quikon, and quality parameters such as fruit coloration, berry size, sugar content, and even shelf-life should also not be overlooked and are also improved.

 

What is Quikon this new generation Biostimulant?

Quikon is an ultra-efficient new generation Biostimulant obtained from an exclusive plant fermentation process. The result is a liquid bacterial extract, this means that the product is composed of the liquids produced by the bacteria during fermentation, but does not contain living bacteria. The ultra-efficient Biostimulant is obtained by using a unique bacterial strain of Corynebacterium glutamicum grown using a natural source molasses from the Brazilian sugar agroindustry under strictly controlled conditions.

Figure 1. Conditions that are controlled during the fermentation process used to produce Quikon.

 

What are “New Generation” Biostimulants and how is Quikon different?

Quikon is quite different from other agricultural bacterial or microorganism products available in the market since its multiple modes of Biostimulant action do not rely on living microorganisms inoculating the plant, nor rely on just a single enzyme produced by a bacterium. Quikon is a complete extract that results from the complex interactions of both the food source used for the bacteria, and then the unique bacterial strain growing on this food source. All of this results in a product with a unique “biochemcial fingerprint” of primary and secondary compounds that cannot be replicated. Changing any parameter during the production of these type of new generation Biostimulants, for example changing the food source, bacterial strain or growth conditions would alter the shape of the fingerprint and thus alter the efficiency of the Biostimulant. These primary and secondary compounds that are naturally produced and used in Quikon are variable and complex, and will serve as the basis for a whole new generation of Biostimulants. Whereas current generation Biostimulants usually target generalised problems such as Abiotic Stress, like hot or cold climate conditions and are often applied across the agronomic cycle, new generation Biostimulants tend to be targeted towards a specific point problem or agronomic growth stage such as fruit swell and development in the case of Quikon.

Figure 2. Metabiolic fingerprint of Quikon, each peak represents an individual primary or secondary compound that combined result in Quikon ultra-efficiency.

 

What are these primary and secondary compounds?

Antioxidants, sugars, amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, osmoprotectants, other unique compounds… more than 200 identified compounds to date (and counting), all form the characteristic and unique biochemical fingerprint that powers Quikon. As no other product uses the same bacterial strain, nor the same feed source nor the same exclusive growth process Quikon is thus unique and its activity is a one-of-a-kind product. This type of uniqueness will be a characteristic of new generation Biostimulants which will often contain unique and proprietary combinations of primary and secondary compounds so that even if a copy of the product is attempted due to the unique interactions of the individual components and conditions during production the final fingerprint of the product new generation Biostimulants will be harder to replicate or copy.

How does Quikon work?

The unique fingerprint of Quikon, generated by the unique combination of primary and secondary compounds results in a potent plant Biostimulant, capable of improving crop performance – and at much lower doses compared to conventional generation Biostimulants. In particular a strong Biostimulation effect that enhances fruit swell and development is observed and all of this coming from an all natural product. Multiple plant metabolic and physiological processes are upregulated or enhanced via the multi action activity of the primary and secondary compounds, such as increased photosynthesis and improved antioxidant capacity, resulting in increased fruit swell and development with more fruits retained , all of which results in higher yield, quality, and profitability

 

How is Quikon used?

Quikon as an ultraefficient Biostimulant, is used at 10 to 40 times lower doses than many other Biostimulants available in the market. Mixed in normal spraying volumes in the application tank, it can be applied to the grapes at the beginning middle to end of the fruit swell and development stages. Like many other Biostimulants, more does not mean better, and Quikon doses, although low, have been proven through numerous trials to be more efficient at the set optimal dosages as per the label. This means there is no need to waste product and money with excessive usage! In general, 2 or 3 applications, at a 50 mL /ac dose with 14 to 21 day intervals, from fruit set through fruit swell, suffices to produce optimal results in Table grapes.

Growers all over the world, including India, are beginning to find out about new generation Biostimulants and about Quikon’s success story via the enhanced production in their own crops. Quikon had a registration process that took over 6 years in Brazil, where Quikon was born, and it achieved the first Biostimulant type registration in that country for any product, is now successfully registered in Europe and an increasing number of other countries. This means that Quikon has undergone the most rigorous global testing and scrutiny. This, combined with the internationally recognised Tradecorp reputation for quality and efficacy, will help Growers improve their grape harvest using an ultra-efficient Biostimulant product that is all natural.

 

New generation Biostimulants are here to stay, each will have unique characteristics in the agronomic cycle and in the case of Quikon this means big results in a small package. Table Grape agronomy will no doubt benefit greatly from these new tools will you join the ReEvolution!

2021 will be a new year by all means. The constant success of Tradecorp in India over the past years has notoriously shown how the country’s tremendous potential and the need for the quality nutrition that we offer.

The Tradecorp India team was founded in 2015, without a physical place and lots of effort over these 5 years, they have achieved a total integration in the country, bringing expert solutions and more than 35 years of experience to every corner.

Mr Badola, Regional manager of India, stated: “As we started growing, I was joined by my colleagues Bonde, followed by Rajesh and Ravindra. Needless to say, that our stakeholders (importers) played a very positive role in development of business.

Our strategy of dealing with regional importers, brand promotion and product performance contributed to good growth year on year”

 

Where will Tradecorp be?

The location chosen for the office will be at 713, 7th floor, City Avenue, Mumbai-Bangalore highway, near Sayaji hotel, Wakad, Pune 411057

This location wasn’t chosen randomly, as Pune in Maharashtra is one of the main points for business in agriculture, in a mid-point for transportation along the country and an open door for great nutrition market due to the size and variety of crops that surround the area.

This action will accelerate every process in the country, from product registration to a closer and more efficient customer service.

 

Meet the team

 As Tradecorp keeps growing, the team does so, Mr Badola, with his 30 year in crop nutrition expertise started the way alone, but many kept joining bringing different and great values to the team.

 

The India team with Global technical department

 

As mentioned before, Bonde, India technical manager, with a background in bio-control quickly got used to the new environment, started travelling to every corner, bringing technical advice and solutions to every farmer and distributor.

Followed Rajesh Kaushik, India business developer. Since Tradecorp’s fame kept organically growing, the team needed to integrate and take care of every client, giving a closer attention to the needs and looking for tailor-made solutions in relation with the global and local technical team.

Last but not least, Ravindra, ensuring the best attention and local support in all matters, and the closest person to the day to day work and support.

 

  “Now let’s celebrate a new beginning in Tradecorp and a step further in the India crop nutritional market history”

The effects of climate change have shaped the new market for agriculture of the Jewel in the crown

Organic production around the world is experiencing sustained growth, especially in the second decade of the 21st century.

The latest data, published in February 2020 by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL), confirm that there are now more than 70 million hectares of organic farmland worldwide. This represents a growth rate of 546% over the last 21 years.

Between 2008 and 2018, the number of hectares used for organic farming worldwide increased from more than 34.5 million to 71.5 million hectares. Farmers who have switched to organic farming have doubled over the same period of time from around 1.4 million to approximately 2.8 million.

Sales of organic produce have also increased, practically tripling in volume. In 2008, sales of organic products amounted to just over €34 billion, but by 2018, the figure had risen to approximately €97 billion.

Large-scale organic farmers

The countries with the most organic agricultural farmland are Australia with 35.6 million hectares followed, albeit by a long way, by Argentina (3.6 million) and China with 3.1 million hectares.

However, these figures do not correspond to the number of producers, with the largest numbers being located in India, with more than one million people involved in organic production on this subcontinent. The second country in the ranking is Uganda with about 210,000 producers, followed by Ethiopia with just over 200,000 growers.

 

 

Sales of organic produce on the rise

The market for organic products is also growing at a healthy rate in terms of sales, though it is worth mentioning that this increase is not taking place in the countries with the highest production, but in the northern hemisphere, in countries which are willing to pay a premium for these products.

According to the FIBL, in 2018, the market for organic produce in the United States (the last year for which we have available data) was worth more than €40 billion. The US giant was followed by two European countries, Germany and France, with nearly €11 billion and just over €9 billion, respectively.

In terms of per capita consumption, the European countries with the highest incomes are in the lead. Switzerland and Denmark spend €312 per capita on organic food, followed by Sweden with an average annual consumption of €231 per capita.

 

But, what is the reason for this growth?

Climate change, overexploitation of land, the consequences of greenhouse gases, etc. have underlined the importance of protecting the environment for both farmers and consumers. This is fostering the development of new technologies and more environmentally friendly techniques, as well as driving trends such as carbon footprint reduction, consumption of zero-mile produce, and the production and consumption of organic products.

In addition, the current global crisis caused by COVID-19 has reminded people of the importance of the agricultural sector, of the importance of food supply, and of the need to consume products that are grown locally and sustainably.

In addition to all of these factors, we can add the commitment of governments, which associate the concept of organic, sustainable farming with protecting the environment and combating climate change.

 

Boost from the authorities

One of the biggest boosts to the industry is the one being advocated by the European Union, as reported by IFOAM Organics Europe, which represents more than 200 producer organisations from 34 European countries. In its 2019 report, it recognises the steps being taken by the Commission. This body is part of IFOAM International which, in 2018, had 779 members in 110 countries. The largest number of members is located in Germany (79), followed by India (55), the United States (48) and China (45).

In the case of Europe, the European Union’s Agricultural Outlook Conference in December 2019 was the scenario for the Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Janusz Wojciechowski, and the Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Stella Kyriakides, to establish an action plan for organic farming in 2020.

The EU has also established a strategy within the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) which states that “the market for organic food will continue to grow and organic farming must be further promoted“. The European Commission wants to “achieve the objective of at least 25% of the European Union’s agricultural land under organic farming by 2030 and a significant increase in organic aquaculture”.

These objectives are part of the global ‘Farm to Fork’ strategy to reduce CO2 emissions and greenhouse gases.

In this regard, the recent negotiations held in October 2020 on the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) have established the concept of “eco-schemes”, a new stream of funding that will reward agricultural and livestock practices that are beneficial to the climate and the environment. Twenty percent of direct payments will be allocated to these “eco-schemes”, and EU member states will be given flexibility to implement the measure.

 

The explosion of Asia

The area under organic farming in Asia is around 6.5 million hectares which, on such a large continent, accounts for only 0.4% of the total agriculture in the region. This figure represents 9% of the world’s organic crops. Asian farmers are taking an interest in organic farming and are looking to offer products that are increasingly in demand.

Within Asia, China has seen an increase in production thanks to product certification. China has 3.1 million hectares of organic farmland, while the country with the largest number of producers is India, with 1,149,371 organic growers.

In the case of China, local supermarkets are increasingly willing to stock these products, although some problems have been detected with the online sale of products labelled as “organic” in order to take advantage of the premium prices that this certified produce commands. Additionally, from a political point of view, the Chinese state is focusing on promoting organic produce among smaller growers and an increasing number of local government agencies have been visiting IFOAM’s headquarters in Bonn to learn about future opportunities for organic farming.

 

The case of India

Which is practically a subcontinent in itself, the effects of climate change have had a considerable impact on agriculture, which has proved to be a wake-up call for the country to react and change. Crops, including organic crops, have been devastated by excessive rainfall. However, organic farms with fertile soils and rich biodiversity have withstood the test of climate impact. The Indian authorities have learnt their lesson about the effects of climate change and the excessive use of chemicals and are now promoting organic farming.

The growing interest of the countries that make up the Asian continent has also been reflected in the opening of IFOAM country offices in different states.

 

Australia and large areas of farmland

If there is one region of the world where organic farming is firmly established in terms of production and consumption, it is Oceania and more specifically, Australia. In 2019, the country’s organic industry had a turnover of 2.6 billion Australian dollars and the market continues to thrive, driven by exports of its products. In this regard, in 2018 more than 30,000 tonnes of Australian organic products were exported to 61 countries.

Australia has a total of 35.7 million hectares of certified organic farmland and it is a country in which consumers value the importance of product certification to such an extent that 55% of organic buyers look for certification marks and the relevant logos on the products they purchase.

Growth in this country is evident in all indicators and the number of companies involved in the organic industry (processors, handlers, importers and exporters) rose from 4,028 in 2017 to 4,802 in 2018. However, there is one exceptional circumstance in Australia and that is the decline in the number of organic producers, with small farms disappearing and larger farms strengthening their position.

Normally when you think about Peru, you may think about Machu Pichu, beautiful landscapes with amazing food, however in Tradecorp we can only see one thing: The grape fields.

The reason why this crop is so important in this small country is because it’s as if everything was tailormade for the growing of all kinds of grapes varieties. Perfect soil, great sunlight and weather conditions as well as lots of knowledge and historical tradition in grape management.

In the last decade, Peruvian table grape exportations have grown from 60,000 t (2009) to 342,500 t (2019), making Peru the third largest exporter of fresh table grapes in the world!

Having all of these factors, Tradecorp must do something about it. We can’t keep these secrets to ourselves, It’s in our DNA to share this precious knowledge.

Beatriz Leube, technical specialist in Asia Pacific, was in charge of this difficult mission. “Challenge accepted” as she says.

Dhanashree distributors, all the way from India had the opportunity to see why this knowledge is so well kept. A total immersion into the Peruvian way of growing, managing and harvesting this precious crop.

The visit was mainly around Ica, the biggest production area, but as you can imagine it is very difficult to access the fields, this is why, thanks to Beatriz and Fertitec, we could meet the local farmers and exchange knowledge with one another from all parts of the world. India, Spain and Peru, what a mix!

We can’t forget to send a big thank to CITE agroindustrial Ica for their big help, opening their fields, giving us the best tips and a lot of time to explain the differences, the why and how they manage their plantations.

We are also very grateful to Dhanashree for being such a fun group. We had the opportunity to contrast many ideas and exchange our cultural ways of seeing the world.

“The visit gave a very good understanding of the grape growing practices in Perú to the visit delegation. These visits were a great learning experience for all of us” Mahesh Damodare, Dhanashree’s founder & director says

“We appreciate the time taken by the Peruvian technicians,their detailed explanations about the grape cultivation practices and answering questions by the grape growers” Rahul Rasal, Dhanashree’s grapes farmer adds

Hope we see you again soon.

Sincerely,

Tradecorp team.

Tradecorp received 17 Indian clients from the company Dhanashree. During their five-day trip the group toured Spain while getting a behind the scenes look into the manufacturing process of Tradecorp’s products. In addition, they gained a better understanding of just how Tradecorp’s specialty crop nutrition products are produced and their effects in crops out on the field.

Their first stop was at Tradecorp’s factory in Albacete, where the company’s liquid products are produced. Here, the Indian clients were introduced to various aspects of the facility such as the reactors, raw material warehouses, the drying tower along with the company’s label machine that allows the Company to create personalized labels not only for each designated country, but also for every client’s needs.

In addition, The Dhanashree clients then visited the factory’s onsite laboratory where they were introduced to Tradecorp’s strict quality controls that test everything from raw materials to the final product. The group also got to know the R&D section of the laboratory that allows for Tradecorp to constantly create innovative new products.
Some products which are created at the Albacete facility include the line of Humic acids, a well-known group of substances derived from the oxidation and mineralization of organic matter, with high capability for soil amendment. Another important line produced at this facility are the Foliar Fertilizers: plant nutrients in a liquid/powder that are helpful in plant nourishment, especially when nutrients cannot be easily spread on/into the soil, or when a certain nutrient is blocked or insufficient within or immobile in the plant.

In the fields of Murcia and Alicante

Upon their visit in Spain, the Indian clients also went to the fields in the provinces of Murcia and Alicante, located in the south-eastern part of the country. Here, expert advisor Ramón Navia, Agricultural Engineer and Consultant, spoke to the clients about citrus production. Mr. Navia advised the Dhanashree group on problems that could occur during the crop cycle and how to deal with them.

While in Murcia and Alicante, they also visited table grape fields that had been using Tradecorp products, showing how with this application is done throughout the crop cycle.

In only a few days, the Dhanashree clients got a first-hand look at Tradecorp’s entire production line: from the quality controls of raw materials, to the making of the actual product, to its use in the field, and ultimately, the effect of Tradecorp’s products on the quality and production of crops.
