Organic Fruit Decay Control

Natural Organic Decay Control

BioSpectra is the latest biorational fungicide to be organically certified for postharvest applications. It provides a broad-spectrum decay control against several major fungal postharvest diseases across various crops and has shown better disease control compared to other organic alternatives.

BioSpectra is a novel postharvest fungicide of natural origin with a unique mode of action against decay, including resistant strains to conventional fungicides, making it an ideal rotation or mixture partner.

New Mode of Action

BioSpectra 100 SC has a different mode of action. It acts by binding to ergosterol in the fungal cell membrane and inhibiting membrane transport proteins, leading to cell death.
