EAST HARTFORD, CT -- BioSafe Systems announces the release of PVent® Biological Fungicide. An enhancement in microbial fungicide technology, PVent provides growers with an easy-to-use, versatile IPM tool. This innovative development was spearheaded through a strategic partnership between two family-owned businesses: BioSafe Systems and Lallemand Plant Care.
Due to its active ingredient, a 93% Gliocladium catenulam strain J1446, PVent® has unique adaption traits, meaning that it can thrive across broad ranges of temperature and humidity, both in the soil and on leaf and stem tissue. PVent® has a natural symbiotic relationship with the rhizosphere microbiome, with part of its adaptive success coming from an enzyme it produces to specifically target pathogenic fungi. This makes PVent® an entirely unique biofungicide and a product that will fit in well with IPM programs for indoor and outdoor production.
Powered by three modes of action, PVent® is biologically programmed to rapidly colonize its host environment to defend against, attack and destroy even the most resilient plant pathogens. PVent® can be used on field-grown crops, berries, pome and stone fruits, tree nuts, vineyards and more to control a variety of pathogens including Powdery Mildew, Fusarium, Phytophthora and Botrytis.
