Fighting against the ink disease  – it affects Quercus trees and threatens their existance

Thanks to donations by Swiss organizations and private persons, Fundación Monte Mediterráneo in cooperation with the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid can realize investigative experiments to fight the effect of the so called ink disease which is affecting trees on the Dehesa San Francisco.

Three different substrata (OPTI Plus und OPTIfer, both liquid and Biohumin, solid) are being applied to affected grown trees as well as to natural regeneration and germinated acorns, as well as in the field as in laboratory, to proof how the substrata can help to revitalize the soil so it may help the plants to defend themselves against the disease. The investigators Ramón Perea García-Calvo, Senior Researcher (Ramón y Cajal Fellow) and Aida López Sánchez, PhD, ECOGESFOR-UPM Research Group, Departamento de Sistemas y Recursos Naturales, both from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid are here being supported  by young people from Lower Saxony. They are participating in a EU-program Erasmus+ KA1 Mobility realized with our cooperation partner the Agrarian Chamber of Lower Saxony.
