The trial shows clearly the essential support of the product (induction of plant resistant) for the disease
control in a very useful synergy with copper fungicide action

 

  • Technical result: ISR effect of selective biological management works synergistically with Copper for downy mildew management in grape
  • Economic result: residue free, quality grapes enter market at higher price
  • Sustainability (ecological, social and economical) Gains:

 

    • Enables regenerative land use practices
    • Reduction of reliance on cupper and chemical pesticides
    • Preserves the biodiversity enabling resilient ecosystems

 

    • Demonstrates good governance of soil management
    • Enables worker and consumer health and wellbeing
    • Secures quality food production

 

    • Improvement of financial viability
    • Higher crop yields
