Bud Rot Stop
A 100% natural bacterial liquid, Bud rot stop is effective against Bud rot (Botrytis), Mealy bug and many fungal diseases.
THE ACTIVE INGREDIENT
The active ingredient in bud rot stop is Bacillus subtilis. Bacillus subtilis is a widespread bacterium found in soil, water, and air. Bacillus subtilis controls the growth of certain harmful bacteria and fungi, presumably by competing for nutrients, growth sites on plants, and by directly colonizing and attaching to fungal pathogens.
USE SITES, TARGET PESTS, AND APPLICATION METHODS
Use Sites: B. subtilis is approved for use on a wide variety of food crops, including cherries, cucurbits, grapes, leafy vegetables, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, and walnuts.
Target Pests: Fungi and bacteria that cause scab, powdery mildew, sour rot, downy mildew, and early leaf spot, early blight, late blight, bacterial spot, and walnut blight diseases.
Application Methods: B. subtilis is sold as a powder and a liquid that is mixed with water and sprayed on foliage using ground equipment. The number and timing of applications vary with crop and level of infestation.
RISKS TO HUMAN HEALTH
No harmful health effects to humans are expected from use of B. subtilis. Appropriate tests found no evidence that the bacterium is infectious or significantly toxic to humans. However, contact with B. subtilis products may cause redness or irritation to the skin. To minimize the risk of adverse reactions in applicators and handlers, EPA is requiring these workers to use appropriate personal protective equipment.
RISKS TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Available studies show that no adverse effects are expected to non-target organisms, with the possible exception of honey bees, when products containing B. subtilis are used in accordance with label instructions. However, because of some difficulties associated with interpreting the results of these studies, EPA is requiring additional tests to confirm that use of pesticide products with B. subtilis will not infect or otherwise harm honey bees, wasps, shrimp and other aquatic invertebrates. Meanwhile, to minimize the risk to honey bees, applicators are not allowed to spray areas where bees are actively foraging. After the results of the additional studies become available, EPA will decide whether this use restriction can be lifted.
Bud rot stop contains a bacterium which encourages a plant's defense system to become active. This bacterium also suppresses the reproduction of Botrytis spores.
