The Xylella is transmitted by insect vectors (Leafhoppers) that with the mouthparts of type "stinging - sucking" acquire the bacterium of infected plants and transmit it to healthy ones.

The Leafhoppers are a cosmopolitan family with high proliferation and these carriers, feeding with various modes of the lymph vessels present in the infected plant, determine the rapid spread of bacteria to other healthy plants, wild and cultivated, but only in the case in which the recipient plant is susceptible, the bacteria will be able to multiply and spread.

Even if the infection occurs in the upper part of the canopy, the bacterium through the lymph vessels arrives in the lower part of the same and also infects the new shoots, going to affect their regenerative capacity through the issuance of new shoots.

Mixtures that are intended to use for testing are based on beneficial microorganisms (group 1 Register Dyestuff under the European Regulation EC no. 1831/2003), essences of herbs / natural, medical and partly biological, completely free from chemicals, non-genetically modified (non GMO), are also controlled and monitored throughout the process of preparation with specific protocols that guarantee a final product constant and always of high quality.

These compounds are produced at the headquarters in northern Italy.

But what 'a microorganism, in short, is a living organism that allows you to move from a state of decay, decay, disease, pollution, to a state of life, health, vigor and well-being.

The trial plans to treat crops with natural products allowed in organic farming as an alternative to traditional systems (chemical).

In fact, the use of harmful elements used so poorly selective, destroy flora and fauna, creating hazards and unacceptable conditions for the environment and for operators by inhalation and contact can absorb these substances harmful to health.

The number of treatments, as well as the amount to be allocated, can vary depending on such external factors as: seasonal pattern; climatic conditions; humidity; temperatures; rainfall / drought; type varieties sown; growing seasons and the type of cultivation (greenhouse, open field etc.), farming practices Farmer.

In principle, the main periods most suitable to perform the treatments are:
• the months of May-June as the weeds tend to wither and leafhoppers move on shoots of the olive or other plants in vegetation;

• the autumn when the first rains favor the vegetative growth of
plants with emissions of young shoots.
