Italy approves Syngenta’s BION 50 WG

Italy has authorized the use of Syngenta’s BION 50 WG  for fight against the bacterial canker of kiwifruit [Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae (PSA)], a disease that undermines production by both the severity of the damage and the lack of technical means of defense.
Based on acibenzolar-S-methyl, BION 50 WG is an inducer of host plant resistance, formulated in water-dispersible granules. The product has already been used for a long time in the control of the bacterial canker of kiwifruit, having obtained in the last years the authorization of temporary use to face the phytosanitary emergency. BION 50 WG shows a different mode of action compared to the products currently used against PSA, such as for example the copper and microbiological formulations, as well as having a high mobility within the plant tissues, acibenzolar-S-methyl acts by activating the systems natural defenses of plants, making them more resistant to the penetration and spread of the pathogen.
For these reasons BION 50 WG must be used in advance and should be seen as a useful tool to be integrated with current technical measures and agronomy for the control of the disease.
In field trials in recent years, BION 50 WG , employed in various strategies, continued to show good efficacy results for the control of the disease.
