Experience and expertise
To ensure the vaccination is effective, it is important that the vaccine is administered correctly. It goes without saying that you can count on Valto for clear instructions and for our extensive experience and expertise. Several weeks after vaccination, the crop is inspected by random sampling to check that the V10 application was successful.
The importance of hygiene
Good hygiene is very important. Work as cleanly as possible. Before starting the vaccination process, put on virus-free clothing and plastic gloves, and do not put any materials on the floor. Instead, place them on a higher, clean surface. Prepare a new batch of V10 after every long break and each new day. Proper hygiene must be observed after vaccination as well: the plants are not fully protected until after a few weeks.
Effective vaccination methods
To ensure effective vaccination, each plant must be treated. Rub the agent onto one leaf on every stem, just below the head and at medium height. There are two ways to do this:
Method 1: Lightly rub the rough side of a scouring sponge dipped in V10 over the leaf while applying counter-pressure with your other hand. The scouring sponge will bruise the leaf.
Method 2: Dip your thumb and index finger in V10 and rub them over the leaf, damaging it slightly in the process.
Damaging the leaf a little will enable the V10 to be absorbed by the plant, so that it can do its job effectively.
V10 treatment strategy in weeks
