Products based on micro-organisms (bacteria, fungi, viruses) that are used to control fungal diseases, bacteria and nematodes. ISAGRO developed an organic fungicide (REMEDIER) based on antagonist fungi (Trichoderma asperellumandTrichoderma gamsii). Already registered in Italy and the US, new applications are being studied, particularly for the defense of fertile land from diseases not properly controlled by conventional chemical products.
