BASF France Agro has just obtained the approval of Integral® Pro, the first biocontrol seed treatment for rapeseed. Seeds are protected from sowing against soil-pathogenic fungi, other than pythiids, which are responsible for seeding fires.

Integral® Pro is a biofungicide composed of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain MBI 600. It is registered as a plant protection product in Schedule 3 in France.
 
Bacteria present on the seed multiply in the soil and form a protective film around the roots. The bacteria protect the plant throughout its crop cycle. The cultivation is better established, it shows a better vigor during the recovery of vegetation, this translates into a yield increase of 4% on average.
 
In addition, the biological activity of Integral® Pro stimulates the natural defenses of rapeseed against flea beetles.
 
Integral® Pro will be marketed by BASF to seed companies for planting in 2018.
