    Materials used in this chapter were published in the book Biostimulant Albit for increasing yields and protection of agricultures against diseases, A.K. Zlotnikov, Ed. Prof. ј. Melkumova. All-Russia Institute of Plant Protection, Russia, 2006.

    Influence of Albit on cucumbers was examined in 4 field trials in 2 regions of Russia (Moscow and Leningrad oblasts). Trials were performed in 2001-2003 on the following cucumber varieties: Izyashchnyy, Elektron, Marinda, and Zozulya by All-Russia Institute of Vegetable Selection and Seed Breeding and Leningrad Regional Plant Protection Station. High efficiency of application of Albit on cucumbers was also proven in farms of Krasnodar krai and Saratov oblast and in small private plots all over Russia.

    Averagely, according to average results of all performed trials, treatment with Albit increased the yield of cucumbers by 116.6 centners/hectare (24.0%). Depending on region and year, yield increase over control varies from 50 to 270 centners/hectare (0.5-2.7 kg/m2). Besides yield increase, Albit increased germination of cucumber seeds, number of pistillate flowers, turgor of cucumbers; improves drought resistance and decreases content of nitrates. In the conducted field trials economical or biological effectiveness of Albit was not inferior to that of standard formulations based on Pseudomonas aureofaciens and epibrassinolide.

    Treatment of cucumber plants should be performed in accordance with general application recommendations for vegetables. Full treatment cycle (presowing seed treatment + two foliar sprayings) takes 61 ml of Albit per hectare. Economical efficiency of Albit on cucumbers as well as on other vegetables is extremely high. According to available data of field trials (the minimal yield increase is 50 centners/hectare), each litre of Albit is able to provide not less than 820 centners of additional yield. Possibly, ability of Albit to increase yield of cucumbers is overestimated (due to small number of trials), but anyway, the fact of considerable cucumber yield increase due to application of Albit is undoubted.
