KE-plant in viticulture

KE-plant is a plant aid to strengthen the plants and to prevent plant disease.


Scientific studies at the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences and the Technical University of Vienna have shown that the plant aid KE-plant contains ingredients that are able to activate the plant's own defence system.
This effect is achieved by the fact that the special manufacturing process of KE-plant allows the surface biology of herbs as well as their secondary ingredients to be contained in KE-plant in a durable form, which can now be used specifically to support plants.
This biology activates, among other things, plant-own biochemical messenger substances, which stimulate the plant's defence system. Even the smallest amounts of KE-plant not only result in increased growth and yield but also in a significant increase in the resistance of plants.



2 litres KE-plant per treatment per hectare

1 kg KE mineral per treatment per hectare


The intervals of application should be adapted to local conditions.


Experience has shown that in spray treatments the combination of KE-plant with KE-mineral has a particularly good effect and the use of pesticides can be reduced. KE-mineral is a pure zeolite with a crystal structure and fineness that is favourable for the plant. The high surface in combination with the special crystalline form supports the plant metabolism.

The use of KE-mineral may result in visible residues on the table grapes. To avoided this, the concentration of KE-mineral must not be more than 0.4% of the spray solution. In case of doubt, it is advisable to test the mixture on some plants in advance to see if stains remain on the fruit.

KE-plant and KE-mineral can be applied simultaneously with other products, whereby KE-plant is the last product to be mixed into the spray solution.

Initial treatment - First treatment after the winter


The first treatment should already be carried out in spring from the bud swelling until the leaves unfold. (BBCH 03 -13). Dosage initial treatment: 2 litres KE-plant per spraying per hectare. No KE-mineral

Experience has shown that this initial treatment at the beginning of the season prevents the mass occurrence of fungal diseases. This is achieved by strengthening the biology of the plant. The spores of many vine diseases are inhibited or suppressed in their spread.

New planting of young vines:
Before planting, dip the roots of the young plants in a 1% KE-plant-water solution. Additionally, 2% KE-mineral should be stirred into this solution.  Then the freshly planted vines can be watered with the remaining solution.


Experience has shown that this treatment improves the rooting of the vine plants and leads to better plant development.


In the enclosed photos you can see how it looks like in practice. Here the new planting was done by hand. For each plant 30g of zeolite were additionally worked in around the planting hole.

In case of increased occurrence of fungal diseases such as mildew or botrytis:


In case of already existing fungal infestation or high fungal pressure:

5 litres KE-plant per hectare per spraying + 1 kg KE-mineral.


Experience has shown that the combination of KE plant with KE mineral is particularly effective for treatment and that the use of pesticides can be reduced



As long as the fungal pressure persists (e.g. in bad weather conditions) the treatments should be continued continuously. The intervals between individual spraying should be 5-6 days.
