Today has been published the Ecoletter that shows the effectiveness of Bestcure against bacterial leaf spot in plum, a severe disease caused by the bacterium Xanthomonas arboricola pv pruni, affecting the leaves and fruits of some fruit crops like almonds, peaches, cherries, plums and apricots. Bestcure® is an activator of natural defenses of the plant whose formulation is based on extract of Rutaceae (Citrus sp), rich in organic acids (ascorbic acid and cítircos) and bioflavonoids that induces antimicrobial endogenous effects against a broad spectrum of fungal and bacterial diseases, both as a preventive and curative product.

The trials, performed on two different varieties of plum and in two different areas of the Western Cape of South Africa on infected plum fruit trees, showed that Bestcure® is effective at all the doses tested to control and suppress Bacterial Leaf Spot, besides not observed symptoms of phytotoxicity in any of the trees treated throughout the test. This renforces the fact that Bestcure is an effective alternative solution, much more friendlier in order to reduce the impact of agriculture on the environment, at the same time that ensures the productivity of crops.
