BioBest has added a two new products developpend by Lallemand Plant Care to its portfolio; Prestop and Greenstim

biofungicide developed by Lallemand Plant Care and distributed by Biobest in certain territories has excellent potential in both vegetables and ornamentals. It provides control of Botrytis blight or grey mold. The disease usually attacks the soft or weakened tissues of the plant, like flower petals, buds, seedlings, pruning cuts and senescing plant parts, but also in tomatoes where stem-Botrytis causes severe damages. Attacks are particularly likely under cold and wet conditions.

Prestop contains the beneficial fungus Gliocladium catenulatum. This fungus competes with Botrytis for space and inhibits its development. Successful applications in ornamentals include for example, preventative treatment of Geranium and Fuchsia.

New in Biobest’s portfolio is also Greenstim®. Also produced by Lallemand Plant Care, this plant extract stimulates plant performance under a broad range of stress conditions like heat, cold, salinity and drought. The plant’s osmotic balance in the cell will be improved, resulting in a better water economy. In efficacy trials in France, superior productivity of potted ornamentals was observedwith limited watering. In Belgium and Finland, trials in roses showed improved vase life. In tulips, a reduction of leaf yellowing was obtained.
