It is produced through fermentation of Bacillus subtilis, a naturally occurring bacterium, according to a news release.
The fungicide is most effective at low to moderate infection levels and controls a wide range of diseases both in the soil and foliarly.
The soilborne diseases it has activity on include Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, Sclerotinia, Phythophthora and Pythium on a variety of crops, including leafy and fruiting vegetables, cucurbits and ornamentals.
Foliar diseases on which it has activity include downy mildew, powdery mildew, early blight, late blight, bacterial speck and bacterial spot, according to Novozymes' U.S. website.
This is not the first agreement between the two companies.
In April, the two agreed to work together to commercialize Novozymes' seed-applied biological, JumpStart, which increases phosphate solubility in the soil, according to the release.
