Bestcure® is an organic fungicide and bactericide with direct and indirect antimicrobial action, formulated with substances that activate the plants’ natural defences against fungi and bacteria. Bestcure® contains some furanocoumarins (exogenous phytoalexins) that activate plant defences against pathogens. The bioflavonoids (vitamin P) prevent oxidation of the ascorbic acid, enhancing its effect on plants. Both compounds have antioxidant properties, allowing for a synergistic effect that helps to preserve the natural aroma of fruits and vegetables. Application of Bestcure® also invigorates plants by facilitating an easy absorption of amino acids by the root or foliar system.

Its composition and mode of action are explained in this video:
