Nasce il kiwi resistente alla batteriosi

Ecco allora che la varietà di kiwi "Green Angel", completamente bio e naturale, sarà la soluzione per preservare le coltivazioni italiane.

Il frutto è analogo ad Hayward ma con contenuti di zuccheri e sostanza secca più elevati grazie alla migliore esposizione ai raggi solari per l'apparato fogliare più contenuto. A individuare la nuova varietà è stato un vivaista del saluzzese che, nel corso dell'esplosione della batteriosi nel 2011, notò che, pur essendo inserita in un contesto di frutteto attaccato dalla malattia, la pianta dimostrava una resistenza alla patologia decisamente superiore. Qui, nella sede di Grugliasco, sotto la guida del dottor Matteo Monchiero di Ant-Net srl, sono state condotte due prove nel 2015 e due nel 2016. Ora, per sconfiggere l'actinidia, un'azienda agricola di Saluzzo ha creato, in collaborazione con i ricercatori dell'Università di Torino, una varietà di questa pianta in grado di resistere alla malattia.

Arriva il Kiwi Green Angel: lo hanno definito un "miracolo della natura" e non hanno tutti i torti. Si tratta infatti di una antica tecnica usata dagli agricoltori per strategia di difesa ed efficace proprio come dare il rame alle piante, o coprire con teli di plastica il frutteto.
