Albaugh brought its portfolio of coffee culture technologies to the first edition of the Cooabriel Agribusiness Fair and spoke about its coffee disease and pest control solutions and products at the event.
One of the highlights was the company's Simboll 125 SC fungicide (flutriafol), a high-tech product, with application via soil, endowed with systemic and contact action and employed in the control of leaf diseases of the crop.
“At the event, we presented Albaugh's complete line of copper-based fungicides such as Recop and Cobre Atar, brands recognized for their effectiveness in disease control and in the management of fungicide resistance to Brazilian coffee pathogens, such as anthracnose, coffee rust and brown eye, among others,” said the company's director of marketing and development, Reginaldo Sene.
Sene also pointed out that Albaugh Brasil's production unit in the city of Resende (RJ) is the largest industrial plant in Latin America to produce copper-based agricultural fungicides and bactericides. “Our value proposition is to raise the quality of crop management and improve the cost-effectiveness of the farmer,” he said.
Another highlight at the São Gabriel da Palha event will be Albaug's Granary insecticide, known in the coffee production chain for pest control, buzzer and root fly. According to Senna, Granary also brings together benefits such as its systemic mode of action and its application directly to the soil.
In addition to coffee growers, the trade fair will bring together agronomists, researchers, agricultural implement suppliers and coffee production promotion agencies, according to an interview published on Cooabriel's website with its president, Luiz Carlos Bastianello. He also stated that the meeting will be relevant for associate producers to know about and stay updated on new technologies for growing coffee.
