US (NY): New formulation from BioWorks shows good results for botrytis protection

BioWorks launched BotryStop WP, a newly formulated biological fungicide that delivers superior prevention and control of Botrytis when trialed against other biological and chemical control options. BotryStop WP delivered up to 40% greater efficacy and even more in certain trials when compared with competitive products on a diverse set of crops infected with the disease. For indoor and outdoor use, BotryStop WP was developed specifically to address Botrytis in ornamental, nursery, food, and medicinal plants.

BotryStop WP’s active ingredient, Ulocladium oudemansii (U3 Strain), has a unique mode of action (MOA) that prevents and controls Botrytis cinerea, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, Monilinia spp., Xanthomonas and other foliar pathogens. BotryStop WP outcompetes the pathogens for nutrients released by senescing plant tissue and occupies the same ecological niche that pathogens like Botrytis colonize. Without causing any damage to living, healthy tissue BotryStop WP supports healthier crops. This also makes BotryStop WP an excellent disease-prevention tool that can be used alone or in a spray rotation for resistance management.

“New BotryStop WP data continue to demonstrate improved efficacy for the treatment of Botrytis,” said Biological Program Manager for Disease at BioWorks, Michael Brownbridge, Ph.D. “This reformulation provides an easy-to-use, superior resistance management solution for one of the most destructive diseases growers face.”
