DESFAN 100-A is the beginning of a new “nontoxic” era in the control of plant diseases.
DESFAN 100-A is obtained from the seeds of citrus and developed with peak technology by INVETISA-US. This product has shown a broad spectrum of activity against microorganisms that attack our agriculture. It belongs to a new generation of organic, ecological and nontoxic fungicides, non- harmful for humans or animals.
With the collaboration of agricultural companies, we have developed a wide research and development program for DESFAN 100-A, confirming thus its power to control many of the fungi, bacteria and green algae that attack plants and fruits. It has been described as the solution to the resistance that many fungi have developed to inorganic fungicides and their byproducts.
Different studies have shown that DESFAN 100-A is an efficient disinfectant of seeds, controls fungi in bedding plants and fungi that attack leaves and flowers.
Below are the crops where DESFAN 100-A has shown to be effective in the control of different diseases:
IN THE PRODUCTION OF CITRUS FLOWERS, DESFAN 100-A has shown an efficient control on the Penicillium spp. and Botrytis cinerea fungi, which cause the “Citrus flowers rot” disease.
In recent years, the severe citrus diseased “Gray rot” has increased and its economic damages are more and more every day; it attacks flowers, buds and small fruits, causing rotting, death and falling of these organs, reducing thus crops. The first flowering of citrus is the most attacked one by this disease, forcing farmers to apply fungicides two or three times.
With DESFAN 100-A you can control this disease with 1 or 2 applications, avoiding thus the falling of flowers, which at high humidity and without fungicides can get to 80% of falling in the first flowering.
DESFAN 100-A improves the production of potato, proving to be the most effective and economical fungicide-bactericide nowadays. DESFAN 100-A has been successfully tested in the disinfection of potato seeds before sowing and to control the “fungous ice” or “blight” once the potato has germinated
DESFAN 100-A in the control of fungous ice or potato blight.
Potato ice or blight caused by Phytophtora infestants is the most severe and highest incidence disease in the crop of potato because of the damages it causes and the moment in which it appears in the field.
DESFAN 100-A controls the Mycosphaerella fijensis fungi, which produces the black and yellow Sigatoka diseases. Black sigatoka is a very violent disease developed at high temperatures which makes leaves turn black and kills the plant in few days (3 to 4).
- Yellow sigatoka is a slow disease, developed at high temperatures, makes leaves turn yellow and does not kill the plant.
- DESFAN 100-A must be used during the first stage of the disease, when it can be well controlled.
- DESFAN 100-A controls the cigar bud, which attacks the apical part of the fruit, caused by Stachilidium sp.
They develop fungous sucker, produced by Phythium s.p., Fusarium sp. and other fungi.
