Proyecto FIA  PYT-2017-0226

“Cerezos bajo cobertores plásticos de baja densidad, desarrollo y transferencia de un nuevo modelo de uso semipermanente, como herramienta para hacer frente al cambio climático; mejorar calidad y eficiencia productiva; y potenciar la sustentabilidad del cultivo en Chile"

Project developed within the frame of the main objective of CORFO’s Technological Diffusion Program which is to understand and spread the use of plastic covers in the production of yellow kiwis. It is incorporated by producers in the Sixth and Seventh Regions, contributing to the improvement of growing conditions by confronting the devastating impact of the bacteria P.syringae pv. Actinidiae (PSA) and optimizing the productivity of the species and incrementing the competitively and sustainability of kiwi growers in Chile.

 

In this project, our research department is collaborating with researchers from INIA, including Paulina Sepúlveda, MS Agricultural Engineering, Sylvana Soto, MS Agricultural Engineering, and with the support of thesis students from the Universidad Católica del Maule and others doing internships hile.

Duration of the Project

  • AREAS OF INVESTIGATION IN DEMO FIELDS:

  • Evaluation of the effect on cultivation under plastic for productivity and quality of kiwis.

 

  • Following environmental conditions under a system of plastic covering.

      (studied through the use of sensors and weather stations)

 

  • Evaluation of the contention level of PSA under plastic coverings through diagnostic mapping during spring, summer, fall, and winter.

 

  • Determining the incidence and severity under a system of plastic covering by counting stains on leaves during the spring.

  • Evolution of the pollinator Bombus terrestris as a complement to assisted pollination under plastic covering.

  • Observational study of water necessities of the plant under plastic covering.

      (study of water potential, stomatal conductance, temperature of foliage/fruit, and leaf coverage)

  • Observational study of the behavior of the nutrients in soil solution and the plant under plastic covering.
     

  • Analysis of the costs involved in managing kiwis under plastic covering.

Technology Transfer Group that is made up of the participation and the support of practical knowledge of a group of 15 cherry producing companies in the Maule Region.

 

The final objective being pursued is to achieve the homogenization of the producing management and of the administration and maximization of utilities and sustainability of the fruit growing companies.

Together with the producer group, and working closely with them, is an expert consultor and coordinator who works during the entire development of the program to create regulated spaces for conversation and technical consulting which allow the transfer of knowledge and the discussion of problems.

With them, the growers can find solutions together, achieving the incorporation of advanced techniques in each system of production.

Technology Transfer Group that is made up of the participation and the support of practical knowledge of a group of 15 kiwi producing companies in the Maule and O’Higgins Regions.

Working closely with the producer, are an expert consultor and a coordinator who resolve problems that negatively affect the growing phase of the kiwi orchards in critical stages such as budding, pollination, nutrition, irrigation, control and management of Pseudomonas syringae pv actinidiae (PSA).

In addition, the project in its initial stage determined each of the weaknesses and strengths of the participating companies, and an activities and subjects outline was generated to cover a period of three years which would permit us to obtain as a result of the closing of the detected gaps and achieve a homogenization of the productive and administrative management, striving with it to maximize the utilities and sustainability of these fruit producing companies.
