Global Warming

Over the past 50 years, global temperatures have risen faster than any recorded rate in recorded history. The expert scientific community ensures that the pace continues to accelerate. Global warming arises as a result of the agglomeration of carbon dioxide (CO2), which are the direct or indirect consequence of the combustion of non-renewable resources (carbon linked to petroleum of mineral origin or coal) and other pollutants in the air that As they accumulate in the atmosphere, they absorb light and solar radiation that reflects the earth’s surface, causing what is known as the “greenhouse effect”.

Normally, the radiation reflected by the Earth’s surface would travel through the atmosphere and escape into space. But these pollutants, which can remain in the atmosphere for years or even centuries, create a kind of layer that traps radiation, and the radiation warms the planet’s surface. The scientific community agrees that the rise in global temperature is causing heat waves of greater magnitude; more frequent droughts; and stronger floods, downpours and hurricanes. Ocean temperatures have also risen, making way for tropical storms to grow stronger.

Global warming can therefore make a Category 3 storm dangerous enough to upgrade to Category 4. The effects of global warming have been felt across the globe. Excessive heat waves have killed tens of thousands around the world in recent years. And as a more alarming omen, Antarctica has lost about 134 billion metric tons of ice a year since 2002. Some experts say the rate of ice loss could continue to spiral if we continue at the current rate of fossil combustion, raising the level of ice. sea for several meters from here to 50 or 150 years.

Agriculture contributes more than 20% of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Furthermore, agricultural intensification has had considerable detrimental impacts on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems throughout the world. The doubling of production during the last 35 years was associated with a 6.9-fold increase in nitrogen fertilization, a 3.5-fold increase in phosphorus fertilization, and a 1.7-fold increase in irrigated land.

However, agriculture not only contributes to global warming, but is also largely affected by it. Increasing global warming will shift arable areas to the poles, plant growth, cultivation and production will be endangered as a result of changes in the distribution of rainfall, increased UV radiation, and changes in the chemical composition of the atmosphere. In regions with a continental climate, soils are subject to desiccation, which will cause climate changes that will aggravate the problems of salinity, erosion and desertification. There will be extreme weather events more frequently. Pests and diseases will proliferate as they are favored by a warmer climate. All of these factors will have negative impacts on agricultural yields.

Innovative Concept

In soils with alkaline pH, the availability of zinc for walnut is reduced, where it binds to the carbonate ion and forms insoluble Zn (CO3) 2. Thus, the applications of this nutriment to the soil through inorganic salts are not effective. Therefore, the contribution of Zn to walnut orchards is by foliar application, a practice that is costly in terms of inputs and equipment; Furthermore, the continuous machinery traffic favors soil compaction and fuel consumption. Furthermore, in semi-arid regions a zinc solution sprayed on the foliage evaporates rapidly, which substantially reduces the penetration of the nutrient into the walnut leaves. This forces spraying to be done overnight, which together with the numerous applications required make this practice very time consuming. Zinc is a key element for the nutrition of walnut trees and its absorption is closely linked to the degree of mycorrhization of its root.

Innovak works on the generation of an alternative Zn supply scheme, without the disadvantages of foliar application, such as the use of chelates combined with an improvement in the absorption process via induced mycorrhization and conservation of the soil vegetation cover.

Conclusions ────
  1. The foliar supply of zinc gives the highest fruitful shoot growth. Second, there is the Carboxy-Zn + MycoRoot.
  2. Zn-foliar and Carboxy-Zn + MycoRoot produce the same specific foliar area.
  3. Zn-foliar and Carboxy-Zn + MycoRoot give the same performance and outperform other treatments.
  4. The use of Carboxy-Zn is more environmentally friendly than the standard foliar application.
