Personality Revealer Training - Online

On the 16th and 17th of June, we held an online Personality Revealer Training for new members of the DPN team with the objectives of discovering the different personality typologies, revealing the strengths and weaknesses of each of the four personalities, and defining practical ways to deal with each type.




The Effect of Delta Agri Liquid Potassium on Some Parameters of Growth, Yield, and Powdery Mildew Resistance of Greenhouse Cucumbers

Delta Agri Liquid Potassium: This product combines the two nutrients, Phosphorus and Potassium, as shown below: Percentage of nutrient % (W/V): K2O: 45. / P2O5: 2 Each nutrient possesses important functions in plant development. Potassium (K): Potassium is associated with the movement of water, nutrients and carbohydrates in plant tissue. It is involved with enzyme activation within the plant, which affects protein, starch and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. The production of ATP can regulate the rate of photosynthesis. Phosphorus (P): Phosphorus is an essential element that is classified as a macronutrient. One of its main roles in living organisms is to transfer energy. Organic compounds that contain P transfer energy from one reaction to another within cells. Adequate P availability in plants stimulates early plant growth and hastens maturity. Beit Alpha Cucumber: A Middle Eastern cucumber that is smooth and blocky with dark green skin. The flesh is crunchy, and the skin is mild, removing the necessity of peeling. It is usually picked small at 5 to 6" long. It can be used for pickling or sliced in salads. It is one of the most important cultivations for greenhouse plants in Iran by more than 6300 Ha planted area in the country. The largest provinces by area for greenhouse cucumbers in Iran respectively are: Tehran (2246.5 Ha), Kerman (1885.8 ha), and Yazd (1330.5 ha). Powdery mildew: The first sign of powdery mildew is pale yellow spots on leaves. White powdery spots can form on both upper and lower leaf surfaces, and quickly expand into large blotches (see Pic 01 below.) When powdery mildew infects the majority of the foliage, the plant weakens and the fruit ripens prematurely.   Trial Method: Used the treatment at the fruit setting stage as foliar and following up the results in two evaluations: the first stage at 7 days after the foliar, and the second stage 14 days following the foliar. Our treatments were divided accordingly: POT = Delta Agri Liquid Potassium, NOB = Control, UNT = Untreated. Our parameters were to see indications of mature fruit in the plant in addition to detecting resistance to powdery mildew within the designated timeframe. Results: The number of mature fruits in each harvest in Delta Agri Liquid Potassium was significantly higher than those of the Untreated and Control. In addition, the POT showcased higher stability than the Control group, as displayed in Chart 1.   Chart 2 portrays the powdery mildew (PM) resistance for each group, indicating a significantly higher resistance in the treated group (POT) than that of the Untreated (POT, Control, and Untreated, respectively).





While COVID19- creates complicated problems and changes relationships between humans, we experienced several problems in accomplishing our role and task, which consist of sensitizing people. We decided to experiment with a new method and carry out our functions in a different form. To this end, we created several groups for different provinces in Iran, and started drafting new educational content such as posters, animations and presentations, in an attempt to maintain our connections with our customers and audience. The idea eventually came to fruition, and we now have several groups with more members than we had prior to COVID  19. Today, we publish new content every day regarding the problems that prevail in the field, and while exerting all efforts possible to solve them. We have faith in our work and hope for the future. We are convinced that together, we shall grow stronger every moment of every day, even in light of COVID 19. And the successful experience we had is proof.




Virtual Field Day

For the first time in the history of Delta Pars Nahadeh and triggered by the Covid19- pandemic, the organization shifted its on-ground activities to host a virtual field day instead. The latter initiative aligns well with DPN’s desire to recognize the crisis and turn it into a rewarding prospect for change. The first DPN virtual field day entails 3 core modules:  -Film production focused on both commercial and pre-commercial stages, in addition to introducing the promising varieties by expounding on their individual criteria. -Dispatching fruits to key customers so as to grant them the opportunity to touch, taste and see the produce quality. This undertaking was launched in 2 stages: the first entails sending a well-crafted wooden box that comprises the selected melons and watermelons, and the second was carried out through a sophisticated files box which includes our selected small fruits, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, eggplants, etc. -Broadcasting an Instagram live session that encompasses a welcoming segment, pre-recorded videos, a Q&A session, and some concluding remarks.   In every crisis lies an opportunity that is subject to perception; whereas the ability to transform a crisis into an opportunity is the bread and butter of DPN, a successful subsidiary of our big family Debbane Saikali Group. Our motto: “hope: the bridge of separation and believing that things will get better!”
