Premium waxes for premium nurseries
Obtaining a rooted vine cutting for a quality vineyard is the result of a proper combination of factors related to both technology and production. A method based on the experience and the awareness of nursery workers who can do the right thing at the right moment and with the right tools. Thanks to decades of experience and the use of different kinds of waxes and equipment, Agrichem has been able to achieve significant quality improvements and significant cost reductions in the production of rooted vine cuttings, thus improving nursery techniques. The awareness and the experience of nurserymen allow the waxes to be used in and to adapt to different climates.
The production of our waxes meets the requirements according to ISO-9001 certification.
Second wax application
After the formation and maturation of the callus, wax must be distributed on the entire part that remains above ground in the nursery, in order to keep the delicate cells of the callus and epigeal tissues well hydrated. For this purpose PLASTIFINA 7321 TOP BLU in pellets or slabs, or PLASTIFINA 7535 green in pellets and PLASTIFINA 7075 brown in slabs or NUOVA PARAFIN “Croazia” yellow in slabs , pure or mixed together, are used. The awareness and the experience of nurserymen allow the waxes to be used in and to adapt to different climates. The nursery keeper’s know-how and experience allows him/her the use and adaptation of various waxes in different climatic areas.
Third wax application
The production of rooted vine cuttings ends with the third waxing whose purpose is to preserve the hydration of the plant until the moment of planting in the vineyard. At this point we are in the middle of Winter, a season not suitable for the plant, so the plants must be properly stored in special cold rooms. This is done using PLASTIFINA 7225 Mediterranea, green in pellets or slabls or PLASTIFINA 3535, red in slabs.
