BioWorks recently launched BotryStop, a new organic biological fungicide developed specifically for the control of pathogens such as Botrytis cinerea
and Monilinia spp
. It is based on the naturally occurring non-pathogenic saprophytic fungus Ulocladium oudemansii
(Strain U3) which provides protection to blossoms, fruit and plant tissue.
BotryStop comes in a water-dispersible granular formulation, is compatible with many chemical inputs and is exempt from residue tolerances. It has a 4-hour REI and a 0-day PHI, and is an excellent tool for resistance management.
"The BioWorks team is excited to offer another OMRI-Listed biofungicide that is safe, effective and proven," said Jeff Distasio, National Sales Manager. "With solid trial data on crops such as grapes, strawberries, lettuce and stone fruits, BotryStop will be another tool in our disease control portfolio that customers can use in both the agriculture and horticulture sectors."
