An effective natural soil fungicide

In response to the loss of chemical active ingredients, the firm’s broad spectrum biorational Valcure, based on the Bacillus amyloliquefaciens spp. plantarum D747 strain, controls a wide range of soil diseases in fruiting vegetables and many other crops. Trials conducted on a greenhouse pepper crop in Murcia, Spain, showed Valcure’s effective control of Phytophthora nicotianae var. parasitica. Through innovation and working closely with growers and producers, Certis Belchim provides complete solutions that achieve the objectives of the EU Commission’s sustainability strategies and meet the demands of consumers and retailers.
