Coniothyrium minitans controls Sclerotinia in F&V and arable crops
Fruits and Vegetables, arable / EU/ Coniothyrium minitans/ Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and Sclerotinia minor
Effectively parasitizing and killing off of sclerotia (persistent survival structures Sclerotinia) in infected soils, without environmental impact
Technical result: 70-80% of sclerotia are killed, providing a long term accumulative control over several cropping cycles
Economic result: when implemented strategically into the crop rotation the biocontrol agent keeps disease incidence low, even for susceptible crops in problematic situations. This results in yield increase, often with a better appearance of the fresh produce (eg. Carrot, lettuce).
Sustainability (ecological, social and economical) Gains:
Enables regenerative land use practices reclaiming soils with high disease pressure for production
Increased biodiversity (no non-target effects) enabling resilient cropping systems
Reduction in chemical pesticides
Enables worker health and safety: no negative impact on the worker’s health
Promotes quality nutritious fruit and vegetable production
Supports farmers’ livelihoods, reduction of yield losses and better storage
Improves financial viability and stabilizing the farmer’s income
