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.

Currently Futureco Bioscience has a series of trials made with Bestcure® to test its effectiveness in different species of fungi and bacteria that affect various crops. The results of these trials have been collected in Ecoletters, periodic publications of results of assays to test the efficacy of Futureco Bioscience products, and are the following:
Efficacy of BESTCURE® against bacterial spot and early blight on tomato (Ecoletter 20, 2017)
Fungicide activity of Bestcure® against Botrytis in tomato crops (Ecoletter 19, 2017)
Futureco Bioscience's Botanical Extracts are products derived from plants: roots, leaves, berries, barks, stems and flowers. These products have antimicrobial, insecticide or repellent activities. As natural origin substances represent an environmentally friendly alternative for crop protection. Their complex mode of action prevents development of resistances in the target pests or pathogens. Botanical extracts are one of the most adequate inputs for Organic Farming and Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
